THOMAS MORANGY, OF ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, ASSIGNGR TO CHARLES FFOLLIOTT, OF ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA.
TRACK-LAYING MACHINE.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, THOMAS MORANCY, a subject of the King of Great Britain and Treland, residing at St. Paul, in the county of Ramsey and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Track-Laying Machines, of which the following is a specification.
Hy invention relates to improvements in track laying machines of that class in which the ties and rails are carried on carriers from the supply car to where the tracks are being laid, and has for its object to provide improved means for turning the ties and unloading them sidewise upon the road-bed in the position in which they are to be laid, and also for supporting the tie-carrier high enough above the ground to permit the track layers to work under it.
To this end the invention consists in the construction, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings forming part of this invention, Figure 1 is a side view of the machine; Fig. 2 is a plan view of a fragment of the conveyer chains at the receiving end of the tie carrier; Fig. 3 is a top view of the machine with the receiving end partly broken'away; Fig. 4 is a plan view of a fragment of the receiving end of the machine; Fig. 5 is a perspective View of the couplings for the carrier rails; Fig. 6 is a top view of the forward or discharge end of the machine, broken away; Fig. 7 is a perspective view of the machine on a re duced scale showing the operation of track laying in connection therewith; Fig. 8 is a perspective View of the tie unloading conveyer at the discharge end of the machine; Fig. 9 is a perspective view of the forward or unloading end of the machine, partly broken away; and Fig. 10 is a cross section on line a'm of Fig. 9.
In the drawings A represents an ordinary flat car designed to be coupled to the forward end of the supply train (not shown). Upon this car is supported the rail and tie carrying apparatus hereinafter described. This apparatus comprises a rail carrier B supported upon one side of the car at about the level of the car platform, and a tie carrier C supported at a much higher elevation upon the opposite side of the car. These carriers may comprise any desired number of carrier sections coupled together by suit Specification of Letters Patent.

able means, such as the couplings 2 shown in Fig. 5.
The tie carrier C rises upon an incline from the rear end of the car A, where it is at about the level of the platform, until it reaches a much higher level. It then extends forward at this elevation to the forward end of the machine. It is supported upon struts 3 on the side of the car and a bracket on the post 5. This post is one of the side members of an upright frame D upon the forward end of the car. The por tion of the tie carrier which extends forward from this car is supported upon a beam 6 extending upwardly and forwardly from the forward end of the car platform near the post 5. The outer or forward end of this beam is supported from the top of the frame D by means of guy rods 7 and 8. On the opposite side of the machine a beam 9 extends forward from the post 10 of the frame D at about the level of the tie carrier, and upon the forward ends of these two beams is supported the unloading apparatus hereinafter described. The forward end of the beam 9 is supported from the boom 12 by means of a guy rod 11. This boom extends upwardly and forwardly from the front end of the car near the post 10, and is supported from the top of the frame D by means of a guy rod 13. The boom also supports the forward end of the rail carrier B by means of a hanger 14.
Each of the carriers B and C has a pair of Between the side rails which are driven from the shaft 17 of the Windlass 18 by means of sprocket and chain -or other suitable operative connections, the
Windlass itself being driven from an engine F upon the flat car. Likewise, between the side rails of the tie carrier C are jo-urnaled rollers 19, but those rollers which are in the inclined section of the carrier are not positively driven. v
The ties are carried up the incline at the receiving end of the tie carrier G by means of a conveyer consisting of a pair of spaced chains 20 tied together by means of bars 21. These chains pass over sprockets 22 at the receiving end of the carrier, and sprockets 23 arranged near the top of the incline, and work over the rollers 19 upon the inside of the side rails. The sprockets 23 are driven by means of a chain 24; from a sprocket 31 upon the windl ass shaft 17. On the shaft of the sprockets is a sprocket 25 which has chain connection 26 with "he shaft or" the adjacent roller 19. And likewise each of the succeeding rollers operatively connected with the one before by means of sprocket and chain connection.
The rails are unloaded from the carrier B by means of a hoisting cable 53 which passes over a pulley upon the end of a boom 27. This boom has pivotal support 23 upon the front end of the flat car so that it can be swung from side to side.
The ties are carried endwise or lengthwise along}; the carrier C, so that in order to lay them in place across the road-bed, they must be turned at right angles with their course along the carrier. This can be done manually by the workmen after the ties have been unloaded, but in the present machine there is provided apparatus for first turning the ties and then unloading them sidewise from the end of the machine so that they will drop in place upon the road-bed. This apparatus is supported upon the front ends of the beams 6 and 9 which are connected by means of cross bars 29 and 30 so to term an unloading table.
Near the forward end of the tie carrier, the carrier rails r are spread divergently in order to enable the ties to be turned and deflected. N ear the beginning of the divergent portion. oil the carrier rails is a roller 32 having spikes or prongs adapted to engage the ties and force them along. This roller is driven from the preceding roller 19 by means of the sprocket and chain connection hereinbefore mentioned. Forward of the spiked roller 32 is a screw or worm journaled in the side rails and havin glelft handed threads, so that the ties in passing over it will be deflected outwardly away from the machine, while farther in advance is a worm or screw also journaled in the side rails and having right handed threads, so as to deflect and turn the logs inwardly toward the unloading table at the front of the machine. The worm 3 L is driven from the worm 33 by means of the sprocket chain 35, while the worm is driven from the spiked roller 32 by means of a sprocket chain 56. Thus when a tie is forced forward by the spiked roller, it will be turned first outwardly by means of the worm and then inwardly by means of the worm 34-, as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. (3, where the worm is shown torcing the rear end of the tie outwardly while the worm is forcing the forward end inwardly, the two worms thus cooperating to turn the tie around. In order to prevent the ties from leaving the carrier, as well as to assist in guiding their course, a curved shield 36 is secured across the end of the carrier. It will be seen that the ties are thus forced over from the tie carrier on to the unloading n us table formed by the cross bars 29 and 30, and a diagonal bar d3. Having ournal sup port upon the bars 39 and 4-3 at the side of the tie carrier is a spiked roller 3? rotatable upon an axis lengthwise ot the machine and transverse to the axes of the roller 32 and the worms and 34. This roller 37 is driven from the worm 33 by means of the bevel 38. Also journaled upon the bars 30 and 43 at suitable distances apart and rotatable on axes parallel with that of the roller 37 are three screws or worms 39, 40, and 4H, and between the worms 4-9 and ell is a roller 44:. The worm 39 is driven from the shaft or the spiked roller 37 by means oi. sprocket and chain connection 4-2, and each of the succeeding worms and rollers is driven from the one before it by means of a similar sprocket and chain connection. Thus when the ties have been delivered upon the unloading table, the screws 39, i0, and ell will force them sidewise oil the end thereoi. As will be seen from Fig. 10 the worms 39, ll), and 41 are arranged at a lower level than the spiked roller 3'? and the side rail of the tie carrier, so that the tie, when once dclivered to the worms, cannot work back onto the carrier. And to prevent the ties from leaving the rear end of the unloading table, well as to assist in turning them, a shield 4:5 with a curved outer end is extended diagonally across the table. As the unloading table is at a considerable elevation above the ground, the ties are lowered. by means of the unloading carrier shown in Fig. 8 of the drawings. This carrier comprises a frame E which is secured to the unloading table by means of hinge straps 46 at the top and a brace at the bottom. Upon this frame are journaled spaced sprocket wheels i? at the top and 4 8 at the bottom. Over these wheels run two conveyor chains 49 carrying at suitable inter 'als tie rests 50, the tie rests on one chain corresponding in position with the tie rests on the other. The lower sprocket wheels 4:8 are fastupon a common shaft 51. Upon this shaft is a brake pulley 52 engagz eable by a brake strap 53 operated by a brake lever 54, whereby the speed of travel of the conveyer chains can be checked and regulated. When the ties are discharged sidewise from the end of the unloading table, they will drop over upon the tie rests, as illustrated in Fig. 1, and their weight will cause the chains to move down until the tie rests turn from their horizontal position and permit the ties to drop upon the ground.
In operation, the ties are carried up endwise along' the tie carrier C, as described. d7 hen they reach the worms 33 and 3% they will be turned endwise by these worms and forced onto the unloading table, where they will be by the spiked roller 37 and carried onto the screws 39, id. and ll. These ;screws. or worms will then force the ties sidewise off the end of the unloading table onto the tie rests of the unloading carrier, by means of which they will be lowered gradually to the ground across the road-bed in position to receive the rails. The rails are at the same time carried along the carrier B, from the forward end of which they can be unloaded by means of the hoisting rope 53, and laid upon the ties. By having the tie carrier elevated a considerable dis tance above the rail carrier, the workmen can lay the rails and work under it to excellent advantage as illustrated in Fig. 7.
