Rail Walker Tongs

Downs' Item# 11050

Rail Walkers or rail carrying tongs, as they are often called, are extremely useful devices whenever rail must be moved or positioned by hand. The Jaws on the rail walkers are designed in much the same manner as the standard rail tongs to provide an adequate grip under the rail head. The handles are sufficiently sized so that a man can easily grasp each of the handles for carrying or positioning the length of rail.
