MACHINERY FOR LAYING RAILWAY-TRACKS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 252,960, dated January 31, 1862.
Application filed November 28, 1881. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, DAILY S. MOORE, 0f-
3 represents a cross-section of the frame j' formed of the rails j,onanenlarged scale, and showing the roller 1 and anti-friction rollers Z also the rollers q and hangers b, in full. Fig. 4 represents an inside or face view of the plate 8. Fig. 5 represents an enlarged side View of one of rails 7r, forming the frame 74 provided with a guard, 11, and box a, carrying anti-friction rollers r, roller. m, strap 0, and staple 1). Fig.
6 represents a plan view,and Fig. 7 a side view,
of mechanism used to bring the ties and rails forward from the rear 011 the frames or ways k and 9". Fig. 8 represents an enlarged view of a roller, 1, and the chains 1 Fig. 0 represents a plan view of the chains l aml connectingbars I Like letters of reference indicate like parts.
The object of my invention is to improve the details of construction as originally shown in Letters Patent No. 200,148, granted to Daily S. Moore, February 12, 1878, so as to better facilitate the unloading and distribution of materials at the required point for laying railwaytrack; and it consistsin the construction and arrangement of the details, as hereinafter described.
In the drawings, a represents an ordinary flat car, provided with stake-pockets b. Into these pockets are placed adjustable right-angled hangers b, which carry the frames 7' and 70 the former being constructed more especially for carrying and unloading the ties, the latter the rails. The framej is provided with rollers Z, the axle of which is carried upon antifriction rollers I", carried in plates 8 bolted to the inner sides of the railsj. The rollers larc made with concave ends, into which project the lower ends of thehook-shaped plates 8, in which are formed the bearings of the anti-friction rollers l", as shown. One of said plates sis provided with a fixed projection, s, over the shaft of the roller 1, and the plate .9 on the opposite side is then provided with a latch or button, 3 which may be turned to one side to'admit the shaft ofthe roller 1 upon theroller 1. after which it is turned back; as shown, for the purpose of keeping the shalt l in its proper place.
Above the roller 1, and on each side, are the rollers q, turning on pins q, which are placed loosely intothe rails j, the object of which is to guide the tie and prevent itsfriction againstthe sides oftherailsj, and thereby preventclogging, or at least impairment of the motion of the. tie to the forward end on the frame or way j The ties are pushed along over the rollers by men provided with spiked poles until theyrcach the forward car, in which the frainej is provided with an endless chain, 1 (shown dotted-in Figs.
2 and (i and enlarged in Figs. 8 aml 9.) Said chain is propelled by means of a shaft, B, provided at its end with apulley, c and belt working a pulley, a, on the outer side of the frame f, and attached to the shaft l of a roller, Z. Said roller is provided with spurs 1 working into the links of the chain 1 aml when set. in motion causes the endless chain to travel and thereby carry the tics forward over the front end of the swinging aml adjustable frame J. Only one ofthe rollers l need be provided with spurs l and that should be the roller provided with the pnlleyse On the oppositecml of the shaft B, and so as to be vertically over the frame k is attached a drum, (i arranged so that it. may be made to turn looselyor with the shaft by means of a clutch, (P.
To the drum (1? is attached a rope, d provided at its outer end with a claw, d shown attached to arail, d In this case the engine A drives the shaft B by means of the beltover the pulleys a and a On the opposite side of the cars a is'a track or Way, formed ofparallel 5 rails 7t, hung in adjustable hangers b,and between which are concaved rollers m, the shaft. m of which turns upon anti-friction rollers r in a cast-iron box, a, let into the top edge of the rails k, as shown, and the shaft m is kept in its place bystraps 0, held in its place by means of staples p and keys passed through them. (Not shown.) On the outside of the outer rail, is, are fastened stakes u, which serve to catch the rail in falling, so as to cause it to fall from the car upon the roller m.
To the front end of the-rails j of the front car is attached and suspended by straps t or other suitable contrivauce the way or frame J, which is formed like the frame j its front end being provided with a clevis, which is suspended by a rope or chain, c, passing over the top of the strut 0, whose rear end is fastened to the floor of the car, as shown.
Near the middle of the strut c is attached a cross-bar, d. To the clevis e are attached ropes r5 fand g, passing 1e pectively over the ends of the cross-bar d, and attached to a drum, it, one of said ropes, g, passing to the under side of the drum, the other to the upper side thereof. Said drum is provided with a winch, i. The object of this mechanism isto enable the operator to throw the end of the way J to the right or left, as may be required in going around curves, and so as to cause the ties to fall from itinto the center ofthe road-bed. Both ropes f and g being taut, and passing over the ends of the bar (7, will therefore, as the drum h is turned in one direction or another, cause the frame J to swing into the desired position.
The operation of my improved mechanism is substantially as follows, to wit: A series of cars, a, are united into a train, each of which is provided with the adjustable ways It and j, and loaded, preferably the front cars with rails and those in the rear with ties. Ties are then first thrown upon the rollers l, and asthe ways j, as also W, are inclined or slope toward the front, the ties begin to move forward, or will do sowith slight help, until they reach the front car ot the train, provided,as shown, with an engineand mechanism propelling the endless chains 1 which, in their motion, will then carry the tie forward and drop it over the front end of the swinging ways J, and by reason of the fact that the frame J is laterally adjustable the ties may be dropped upon the center of the road-bed, whether the course is straight or curves to the right or left. The ropesf and 9 WI cause the front of said ways to swing to the right or left, as may be desired, by turning the drum h in one direction or another.
The claw d ishitched to a rail, d, on the rear ways, k, and the drum (1 set in motion with the shaft B by the clutch 01. which will thus wind the rope (I on the drum, and thus bring the rear rail forward and push those out lying in front of it. The ties and iron thus brought before the front of the train are then properly distributed, and the rails spliced to the track already laid then spiked, when the train is advanced the length of the newly-laid rail by a locomotive pushing from the rear, and thus the work is continued.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The verticallyadjustable and laterallyswinging frame or ways J and strut 0, provided with cross-bar d,in combination with the drum h and ropesf and g, arranged to operate substantially as described.
2. Therailsj, provided with rollers q,in combination with the plates 8, provided with rollers 1, roller l, and stops 8 and 8 substantially as specified.
3. The adjustable framek, provided with box a, carrying rollers r, and concave roller m, in combination with theadjustable hanger 1), substantially as specified.
4. The adjustable hanger 1), frame k, pro' vided with box a, carrying rollers r, and concave roller m, in combination with the strap 0, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
5. The adjustable hanger b, frame It, protitled with stakes a, box n, carrying rollers r,
and concave roller m, in combination with the straps 0, substantially as specified.
6. The beveled rails j, provided with rollers q, in combination with the plates 8, provided with rollers l and l, and stops 8 and 8 substantially as and for the purpose specified.
