The' invention relates to `improvements in safety shoes for railway trucks to hold them against excessive` ylateral `movement with reelr jumpy from said rails. K Y

Thefobject of. the 4invention is .tozprovide gard to the rails,`in case/the wheels should an exceptionally simple and finexpensi've,g

yet an; efficient and, reliable device of *the class set forth, which when in,` operation, l* may readily slidev along therails and will have "no injurious effects upon the latter the rails.

L, respectively.l Four kof the attachments are shown, disposed at theendstof the holsters. this numbervbeingpreferable for 40 a six wheel truck. whereas other numbers v may kbe' used if desiredron trucks having more or less wheels. `v if Each of the attachmentsl comprises a horizontally elongated shoe 6 whose length is disposed transversely of the truck when in use, said'y shoe 6 having beveled front andk rear surfaces 7 `which preferably although not necessarily meet at the lower side of said shoe, said beveled surfaces permitting free y sliding of the shoe along a rail. The outer end of the shoe is widened by providing it with oppositely projecting integral lugs 9.'

Moreover, theshoes may readily slide' along the rails without injury to truck or track, untilv they car yor train can be brought to a still.

The device is exceptionally simple and instandyexpensive., is efiicient'. reliable. and in every way desirable. Excellent results maybe ob-y tained from the details disclosed and they are therefore preferably followed, but with-v in the scope of the yinvention as claimed,

variations may be made.

wardly and(k outwardly from the plane of the wheels and having beveled front and re'arsurfaces. an auxiliary shoe projecting downwardly from the outer end of the first named shoe and disposedat the outer side of said wheel plane, and an additional auxiliary shoe projecting downwardly from the inner end of the first named shoe and disposed at the inner side of the wheel plane, the main and auxiliary shoes being nor,-y mally supported above the lowermost plane ofthetruck wheels. j j n y. o l 2. A safetyk attachment for disposition at the end of a truck bolster, said attachment comprising a horizontally elongated member intended to have its length disposed transversely of the truck, said member having beveled front and rear surfaces and being provided with integral lugs at its inner and outer ends to receive 'fasteners for rig idly securing it to the truck, and auxiliary shoes projecting downwardly from the inner and outer ends of said member.

3. An attachment for disposition at the end of a truck bolster, said attachn'ient comprising a horizontally elongated member intended to have its length disposed transversely of the truck, said member having beveled iront and rear sides and having oppositely projecting integral lugs at its inner and outer ends to engage means for rigidly attaching it to the truck, an integral flange projecting downwardly from one end of said member and constituting an auxiliary shoe,

and a second auxiliary shoe projecting downwardly from the other end of said member.

4.
