OAR COUPLING. No. 349,261. Patented Sept. 14, 1886.
III e Gnome a UNI-TED v STATES PATENT OFFICE.
RICHARD PYLE, OF PLYMOUTH, PENNSYLVANIA.
\CAR-COUPLINGL SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 349,261, dated September 14, 1886.
I Application filed July 10, 1886. Serial No. 207,695. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, RICHARD ]?YL:e,ofPlym-v oath, in the county of Luzerne and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gar-Couplings; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full,
clear, and exact description of the invention, I
which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form part of this specification.
My invention relates to couplings for rail-- way-oars, and is designed for use on all classes thereof, but is especially designed for use on freight-cars, the object being to furnish a coupling which shall automatically connect adj acent cars without any manipulation whatever, and which may be uncoupled from the side of the car without any risk' or danger on the part of the operator.
With these objects in view my invention consists in the improved construction, arrangement, and combination of parts hereinafter fully described, and afterward specifically pointed out in the claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a top plan view showing the ends of two adjacent cars with my improved coupling attached, the cars being coupled together. Fig. 2 is a. partial end elevation of a car having one member of my coupling attached. Fig. 3 is a central vertical longitudinal section through the parts shown in Fig. 2 and the draw-head and pin of the other car. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of my improved coupling-link; and Fig. 5 is a perspective view of my improved coupliiigpin, over which said link engages.
Like letters of reference mark the same parts in all the figures of the drawings.
Referring to-the drawings by letters, A and A are the ends of two adjacent cars of ordinary construction. B B are the draw-heads, and B" the draw-bar of the car A. Each of the draw-heads B B are hollowed out on top, as at b b.
In the hollow of the draw-head B, near the top, is pivoted on bars or trunnions c a link,
O, which is provided with an open end, 0, and
a solid end, 0, the trunnions 0 being located 7 slightly nearer the end 0 than the end 0'.
and in a line inclining downward and toward the other car. In this perforation the coup lingpin D is placed. This pin is of a peculiar construction, having a main body, d, which is rectangular in section to fit in the inclined perforation, and an upper portion, d, projecting above the bottom of the draw-head, and a shoulder, d", resting on the surface of the draw-head.
On the end of the car A is pivoted, by means of clips 6, abar, E, having a handle, E, on each end, a weight, 6, at one end, and a projection, e, in the center, formed by bending out the bar at that point.
In the bottom of the hollow of the drawhead B is another pin, F, which at its upper end projects beyond the front of the draw-head.
The operation of my invention may be de scribed as follows: The cars being coupled, as in Fig. 3, and it being desired to uncouple them, the operator, standing at either side of the car, turns the bar E by means of one of the handles, E, and causes the central projection, e, of said bar to impinge upon the solid end of the coup ling-link, as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 3,
and pressing down thereon raises the open end off the pin D until the open end is raised to the position shown in Fig. 2. To couple up the cars, they are brought together with the link raised, and when the projecting end of pin F strikes the solid end of the link the open end will be thrown forward, falling over the pin D without manipulation. The draw-bar B is backed by a spring, 9, to receive the shock when the cars come together, said bar being allowed to play longitudinally for that purpose. In case of accident to the link 0 or its operating mechanism, the pin might be reversed and an ordinary link used to couple the' cars. When the cars are coupled by link 0, its forward end rests on a shoulder, d', as shown in Fig. 3, tending thereby to hold saidpin down.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The improved coupling-link herein described, provided with an open end, 0', a solid 2. The drawdiond B, hollowed out as delink 0 in dmw-hoad B, the pin D in drawsoribod, in combination with tho contrnlivpiw head B, andtho pivoted,woightoihnnd hnndlod otod link 0, having solid 0nd 0', open end 0', ban- E, for operating said link, as and for tho and trnnnions c, as set forth. purpose set forth. 15
5 3. In combination, the car A, having 1101- In testimony that; I claim the foregoing as lowed-out drmwhond B, with bar E, having my ownIhoreto affix my signaturein presence handles E, and control projection c", and the of two witnesses.
