,LDABLE s'EA'r-- i details of construction shown anddescribed,

asI it is obvious thatvarious 'modifications thereof 'within the scope of the claims will occur'to persons skilled in the art. y Y In said drawings: y' Y y Fig. 1 is a top plan view of the device, shown in position in a compartment of a car, the compartment being shown in section;

Fig.l 2 is a view taken on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1;

provide a foldable seat for use in railway cars, more particularly such types of cars as are used with elevated railways and the like by motormen.

Another object of the invention is to provide a motormans seat which may be easily raised to of position.

Another object of this invention isto provide a seat for the use of motorinen of cars Vwhich is formed of few parts and may b e easily and readily constructed and which is strong and durable in operation. s a i Other objects and advantages of this invenscription taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof. Referring now more .particularly to the drawings, in Fig. 1 the numeral 1 indicates compartment. 1 Y

As shown more clearly in Fig. 3, thedevice of the present linvention includes supporting elements 4 which are preferably L-bars and said supporting elements are attached to the partition 2 by rivets or the like. These supporting elements 4 are spaced from each other as shown, and receive between them the seat 6 which is formed of the frame 7 andthe Itis the primary object of this invention toY position and as easily thrown outv tion will be apparent from the following de-V permit ingress and egress into and out of said cushion 8, the ,latterb'eing secured to VVsaid frame 71 by any suitable means', such yas bolts 9. Secured to the partition 2 at a point above the seat 6 is afcusliion back member 10which is' retained in its connected position withthe partition 2 'by suitable locking eleii'ieiits11V l Y 6u and 12, respectively." .r

' The frame 7 of theseat 6 isvprfovided near its' forward end vwith pivot ymeans which are shown as a bolt" 13 having a. mit 14 on the end thereof and said `vbolt carries a spacer 15.

Received betweenithe 'spa'cerf andthehead of the fbolt"'13 is one end ofa "seat 1hanger 16 which is provided with an elongated slot 17 in the lower end. thereof, the uppervend of said hanger being pivotedto the-supporting ele' `ment 4 by lmeansof a bolt 18 or the like. I

have described only one ofthe connections between the supporting element 4 and' the seat but it is to be understood that the supporting means on the other side ofthev seat Yis identical with that just described and consequently no furthervdescription seems to be necessary. Y f

The rearend of pivots 19 which work in a slotted guide 20 formed in the supporting element 4. As

clearly shown in Fig. 2, this guide is providedwith a hook-shaped end end is oifset as shown at 22.v

The seat 6 is provided with aliandle mem- 21 and its lower Yloer 23 secured to the rear-thereof and ex? tending upwardly to a position Such that it may bereadily grasped to operate the seat. In use the seatl 6 is normally positioned as shown in Fig. 2 and from this ligure it can be seen that the seat 6 is retained in its extended tion 2 2 of theguide 20. When Yit is desired to lower the seat when vthe same is not in use, the handle-23 isgrasped and by `a slight the seat 6 is provided with position by means of the hangers 16 with the pivots 19 engaged in the offset por-l outwardmovementof the seat the pivot 19 will'ride out of the offset 22 into the hook-end 21,'through the guideway 20and the pivots 19 will support the seat in itsV lowered to its'extended positionas shown in Fig. 2, an operator merely elevates the seat by means of the handle 23, thus permitting the pivots 19 to enter the guide 20 and pass downwardly position by coming to restV Vin said hook-shaped portion of the guide. -It will be apparent that to bring the seat and upwardly until they come to rest in the oilset 2v2, while v at the same time elevating the orward portion of thest,
