IMPROVEMENT IN APPARATUS FOR SUPPLYING WATER TO RAILWAY-TENDERS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 222,918, dated December 2 3, 1879; application filed November28,1879.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THEOBALD LEININGER, of Washington township, in the county of Mercer and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apparatus for Supplying Water to Railway-Tenders; and do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which ,it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanyingdrawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to an improved apparatus for supplying the tender of a railwaytrain with water; and it has for its object to utilize the weight of the locomotive or other portions of the train to store up or accumulate a sufficient amount of power to discharge the water in desired quantities into the tender, as more fully hereinafter specified.

To this end the invention consists in a submerged pump located in a well or cistern, in proper proximity to a railway-track, in combination with a lever, suitably fulcrumed, and connected with the piston of the pump through the medium of a spring, and a compound le' ver fulcrumed at one side of the track, and adapted to be operated by means of suitable mechanism on the locomotive or one of the cars, whereby the spring will be compressed for the purpose of operating the piston to discharge the water, the discharge being effected through a suitable pipe provided with a stop cock, as more fully hereinafter specified.

The drawings represent a perspective view of my improved apparatus, in which the letterAindicates a pump-chamber, which may be of any suitable shape and constructed of any proper material. The said chamber is intended to be submerged in a well or cistern, in close proximity to the track, and is provided with a suitable induction-valve for the entrance of water. The letter B indicates the piston of the pump, and O the piston-rod thereof, which is braced and held securely in position by means of the rods D secured to the upper end of the piston-rod, and to the corners of the piston, as shown. The letter E indicates an elliptical spring attached to the upper end of the piston-rod. Said spring also connects with a lever, F, fulcrumed to the upper end of a vertical standard, G, fastened securely in the ground, in any desired manner, at one end. The opposite end of said lever is connected by means of a link, chain, or cord, H, to a connection, I, at the ends I at one side of a compound lever, K, the said lever being fulcrumed at the points I to one side of the railway-track N, as shown. The letter P indicates the discharge-pipe, which extends down through the piston, and which is curved at its top so as to reach conveniently over the tender, and is provided at its upper extremity with a flexible discharge-tube, R, by means of which the water maybe properly directed to the tender. The said pipe P, near its upper end, is provided with a stop-cock, S, which will be within convenient reach of the engineer when the said pipe is in proper position over the tender, so that said cock may be manipulated to discharge the water into said tender.

The operation of my invention will be readily understood in connection with the above description.

The locomotive or one of the cars of a train is provided with a wheel journaled upon a shaft projecting at one side, in proper position to engage one of the members of the compound lever K, so as to depress the same. The said lever, when thus depressed,depresses the lever F, compressing the spring E. The stop- I cook S of the discharge-pipe P being closed, the piston is prevented from descending, and the power necessary to discharge the water is consequently stored in said spring. When the tender has arrived inlproper position under the discharge-pipe, the stop -cock S being opened, the spring exerts its power, discharging the water-into the tender. 7

The piston is held in a normal position by means of the pressure of the column of water in the well or cistern, and to keep the lever F in a normal position it is extended rearwardly, and is provided with a weight or counter-balance, T, to effect the purpose.

Having thus described my invention, what U ITED STATES PATENT OFFICE;

I claim, and desire, to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-

1. In an apparatus for supplying Water to the tenders of railway-trains, the combination of a submerged pump, a spring connected with the same, a lever connected with the said spring, and a compound lever connected with the first-mentioned lever, the said lever being adapted to be operated by mechanism connected with the train to compress the spring and store up power in the same to discharge the Water, substantially as specified.

2. In combination with pump A, the piston B, piston-rod 0, spring E, levers F and K, and

I the discharge-pipe P and stop-cock S, the 'whole arranged to operate substantially as and for the purpose specified.

3. In combination with the pump-chamber, piston-rod, spring, and lever F, the Weight '1, whereby the lever is held in normal position, substantially as specified.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 24th day of November, 1879.

THEOBALD LEININGER.
