This invention relates to the construction of railway carriages, and more particularly sleeping carriages.
i The construction according to the present invent-ion is characterized by" a partitioning arrangement and various constructional elements of such a nature'that, in addit on to a comfortable arrangement, a particularly strong construction is obtained, capable oifre sisting destructive shocks.
The above and other features of'novelty; Wlllbb apparent from the following descr1ption of preferred embodnnents illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 11s a dlagrammatical plan view showmg the partitioning arrangement in a carriage according to the invention. This figure,' which shows only a part of the carriage,

rating the compartments from the corridor is indicated at 4. r
The two adjacent'comp'artments are indicated at A and B, the corridor at C and the two lavatories at D and E. p
The two compartments A and B of each pair are separated by a partition 5, 5 of special form, whilst the partitions 7 between the pairs of compartments are perpendicular to the side walls of the carriage, in the usual way.
The specially shaped partition comprises cesarean.

55" straighten out to'connect up on the one hand with the wall 2 of the carriage and on the other hand wlt-h the partition l of the corridor-in such .a manner that the whole of the partitions 5 the form of a very open 8. v
The substantially triangular spaces forme'd between thepartition 5" 5 5' and the wall 2 on the one hand and the partition 4 on the other hand, constitute the two lavatories,
of which the one D belongs to the com partf ment A and the other tothe compartment B."
These lavatories D and E may be isolated from tieir respective compartments v means of doors having two leaves 88.
' Thisarrangement presents the advantage that, when the traveller, desiring to use the lavatory, has opened the two leaves 88 of the door,.the latter are applied, on the one.
hand against the partition Sand on the other thepa'rt t-ion at or wall 2 '(see hand against F 1g. 6)."
These surfaces which, in a carriage-do luxe are coveredwith decorative facings ofa somewhat delicate nature, are thus, owing to the two opened leaves 8-8, fully protected againstanysplashes due to the use or the r lavatory andthe latter thus represents a lo- F1 5 1s a perspectlve vlew showmga modn cation utilizable asja dressing room which would in reality be considerably larger than the space which it actually occupies.
In addition the partition 5-'5'5 is con nected at the top to the walls 2'and 4t by the lintels 8. of the abovementioneddoors 8+8 and from the floor up 'to aicertain height by the casing 15 of the lavatory, which is rigid- 1 lyfixed to these walls (Fig.
The partition 5.-5'-5' may be provided at 5 with a door 6 to permit communication between the two compartments'A and B of apair. v
. The partition 5- 55 is erected approximately only up tothe level ofthe plane "at which the roof 3'joinst'he vertical walls 2 and 4, and at this level the partition 5 '5-5 is connected to two wide channel plates -9-9 which extend on the one'hand across the compartment A and on the other handinto the compartment B, their ends being fixed to the and web of a T-iron structure of large dimensions which thus forms part of the framework of the carriage and braces the walls 2 and 4: in a rigid manner and connects them to the roof 3. The plates 9-9 may naturally be replaced by gratings, punched plates and the like, which likewise form a T-iron structure with the vertical plate 10 and which simultaneously serve as baggage racks fixed to the partition 555 and to the lavatory compartments D and E.
Besides, if it is assumed that the flanges 99 of the T-iron structure are integral with the partition 55-5 and the two lavatories D and E and that the latter form a kind of hollow column having a large cross section it will be seen that the structure of the whole is extremely rigidand that the partition 4 of the corridor is fixed in the particularly rigid manner by the I structure 9109 of T-shape which maintains the absolute parallelism of the said partition 4; with the one wall of the carriage and even, in the modified embodiment hereinafter described (Fig. 5), with the two walls. 'The solidity of the whole of the carriage, relative- 1y to the usual construction of railway carriages, is thus increased to a great degree.
In the embodiment shown in Figs. 1 to 1, the vertical plate 10 forming the flange of the T-structure terminates at one side against the partition 1 ofthe corridor, but it may, if desired, be prolonged by means of a part 10 as far as the other side wall 1 of the carriage,
as shown in Fig. 5, in such a manner that the two walls 1 and'2, are, as previously stated, very strongly braced by the series of mem bers' 910109 stretching throughout the width of the carriage.
The windows illuminating the compartmentarp indicated at 11, the windows of the single leaf door, as shown in Figs. 7 and 8,
which represent an arrangement of this description in plan view. In this case, the
single leaf door 16 is provided with a rod 17 hingedly mounted and supporting a eurtain 18. lVhen the door. is closed (Fig. 7)
the rod 17 is foldedback against the'inner face of the door, and'when the latter is open (Fig. 8)v the rod is brought into a position at right angles to the door so that a temporarily enlarged closed lavatory is obtained shut off from the rest of the compartment.
What I claim is '1. In a railway compartment including lateral walls and a roof, and S-shaped partition subdividing said compartment into two chambers, the central parto'f said partition forming an angle with the transverse axis of the vehicle, said compartment being characterized in that said partition is connected with two horizontal plates forming baggage racks and connected with a vertical plate extending to the roof, the assemblage of these horizontal and vertical plates forming a T- member which braces the lateral walls of the ing the wing ref-the T-member is extended beyond the passage partition to the other wall of the-vehicle, so as to brace both walls of the passage partition.
3. Compartment as claimed in claim 1 and including a toilet in which the walls defining the toilet and angularly arranged with respect to eachother connect the said partition in such manner as to define, together with the lateral walls of the compartment, hollow triangular columns integral with the rest of the construction, thus increasing the rigidity of the whole. y V
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
MAURICE HAUTOT.
lavatories at 12 and the beds at 13; the doors communicating with the corridor are indicated at 14.
It will thus be seen that this entity, whilst effecting an increase in the rigidity of the whole construction, renders it possible to pro vide, for each compartment, a lavatory adapted to open and ensure the maximum of comfort.
The fittings as also the furnishings details may, however, comprise certain modifications without the essential characteristics of
