Hi, as I'm sure you know a Tie-Hacker was a person who cut the lumber for the rail road ties. It was explained to me that originally a groove was shaved into each end of the railroad tie that the track would sit in at appropriate spacing. this would be called the loop-hole. Hope the info is correct.
