BAGGAGE-CAR DOOR.

Application filed November 12, 1923. Serial No. 674,288.

To all whom t may concern.'

Be it known that I, EDWARD E. SHEAR, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kingston, in the county of Ulster and State of New York, liave invented certain new and useful Improvements in Baggage-Car Doors; and I do declare the following to be a. full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the4 art to which it appertains to make `and use the same. A

It is common practice to slidably mount the doors of baggage cars and these doors are very often left open to some extent while the train is in motion, for instance for ventilation. A number of serious accidents have occurred, due to sudden stoppage of the train, when an occupant of the baggage car is looking or leaning out of the partially open door, as when such stoppage occurs, the door often slides forcibly shut. It is the object of my invention however to provide an improved form of baggage car door having a supplemental section which may be opened, without danger of this section or the main section of the door slamming shut when the train is suddenly stopped.

With the foregoing in. view, the invention resides in the novel subject matter herein' after described and claimed, the description being supplemented by the accompanying drawings.

Figure 1 is a side elevation showing the y door completely closed.

Figure 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1, but showing the supplemental section of the door swung open.

Figure 3 is an upper edge view showing I the parts in the position of Fig. 1.

Figure 4 is an upper edge view with the parts standing as shown in Fig. 2. Figure 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4 but illustrating the door slid partially open.

Figures 6 and 7 are detail horizontal sectional views on lines 6-6 and 7--7 of Figs. h

1 andv 2, respectively.

Figure 8 is a detail vertical section on line 8-8 of Fig. 6.

In the drawings above briefly described, the numeral 1 designates one side of a baggage car, said side having the usual door opening above which a horizontal track 2 is rigidly mounted. Hangers 3 are engaged with this track and suspenda main, relatively large, door section 4 therefrom, the

lower edge of this section being grooved at 5 to receive a guide rail 6 secured to the silll of the door frame. A supplemental, relatively small door section 7 is connected by hinges 8 with one end of the door section 4 and co-operates therewith in constituting a complete door.

Above the door sections 4 and 7, I have, shown a horizontal plate 9 rigidly secured to the side of the car, said plate being illustrated with an upstanding fiange 10 through which bolts or screws 11 pass to secure it in place. The plate 9 is provided with an inner edge 12 which constitutes a stop to be engaged by one of the hangers 3, so that thc main door section 4 cannot move from its normal, closed position, when the door 7 is swung open, that is, saidA door section 4 cannot move in a direction to close the portion of the door opening whichv is normally closed by the supplemental section 7. The plate 9 is formed with an arcuate slot 13 which is concentric with the axis of the hinges 8, when thewdoor stands closed. This slot opens in the direction in whichthe door moves when the latter is opened, and the opposite side walls 14 and 15 of said slot` constitute arcuate tracks concentric'with the hinges 8. An upstanding shoe 16, on the supplemental door section 7, is received in the slot 13 to engage the tracks 14 and 15 and it will be seen by reference to Figs. 3 and 4,

. that when the door section 7 is closed, the

swung inwardly against the inner'side of the main section 4, the shoe 16 leaves the slot 13,-so that theentire door may be slid open if desired. If it is necessary or advisable to have the door section 7 in an open position, when the train is in motion, it will be absolutely safe for an occupant of the car to lean out of the opening, previously closed by said section 7, as sudden stoppage ofthe train, cannot slam the ldoor shut and injure To hold the door section 7 against the lsection 4, when theformer is swung inscribed, I preferably secure a short arcuate track 18 to the sill of the door frame or the floor of the car for reception. in an arcuate groove 19 in the lower end of the supplemental door section 7. If desired, the door section 7 may be provided with spaced plates door is provided` which will be a protection against injury, by accidents such as above set forth.

As excellent results are obtainable from the details disclosed, they are preferably followed, but within the scope of the invention as claimed, numerousminor changes ma be made.

claim:

1. A baggage car door comprising a main slidably mounted door section, a supplemental door section carried by said main section and movable to an open position without sliding said mainsection from its normal closed position, and stationary trackage engaging said supplemental section and preventing the entire door fromA sliding longitudinally when said supplemental section is closed, and also preventing closing movement of said main section beyond its normal closed position when said supplemental section is o en. y v

2. lA oor comprising a slidably mounted` main section, a supplemental section hinged on a vertical axis to said main section and inwardly Foldable against the inner side thereof, and stationary arcuate trackage concentric with the aforesaid axis when the door is closed, said supplemental section having a'shoe engaged with said trackage to hold the entire door closed until said supplemental sectionis swung inwardly on said main section.

3. A door comprising a slidably mounted main section, a supplemental section hinged on a Vertical axis to said main section and inwardly folda'ble against the inner side thereof, inner and outer arcuate tracks stationarily `mounted and concentric with the aforesaid axis when the door is closed, and a shoe carried by said supplemental section and received between saidtracks when the l door is closed, saidy shoe being disengageable nac'aasa from said tracks when said supplemental section is swung inwardly against said main section.

4. A structure as specified in claim 2; ,to-

gether with a straight horizontal track lead-v supplemental door section against the main sectlon.

6. A door comprising a slidably mounted main section, a supplemental section hinged on a vertical axis to said main section and inwardly foldable against the inner side thereof, a horizontal plate stationarily mounted at the upper end of the door and having an arcuate slot concentric with the aforesaid hinge axis when the door is closed, said slot opening in the direction'in which the door slides on its opening movement,

and a shoe carried by said supplemental sec-v tion and receivedin said slot when the door is closed.

7 A structure as specified in claim 6; t0- gether with a horizontal track secured to said plate substantially co-incident with the inner edge of said slot and extending therefrom in parallel relation with the main door section, said shoe be-ing engageable with said track as the door is slid open to hold the supplemental door section against the main section.

8. A door comprising a slidably mounted main section, a supplemental section hinged on a Vertical axis to said main section and inwardly foldable against the inner sid'e thereof, and a stationary arcuate track concentric wth the aforesaid axis when the door is closed, said supplemental section having a groove in which said track is received until said supplemental section is swung inwardly against said main section.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature.

EDWARD E, SHEAR.
