It was in 1899 that major railroads began using nails to date ties with nails: that year the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, the Great Northern, the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, and the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie began nail use. The depression, then World War II adversely affected nail use, and from 1950 to 1970 the number of railroads using date nails steadily declined so that for the past thirty years virtually no railroad has used them.

For these companies keeping track of only a few thousand ties was far more economical and accurate than tracking several million ties.

By the early 1920's, however, most of these railroads returned to the practice of placing nails in every treated tie.
