SPECIPCATION 'formingpart of `Letters Patent No. 382,154, dated May 1, 1 88. Application led December 19, 1567.` Serial No, 258.300. "No model.)
To LZZ when@ it may concern.:
Be it known that I, CHARLES HAGER, of the city of Budelo, in the countyiof Erie and State ol New York, haveinvented new and-useful improve-ments. in Freightar Doors, of which the following is n specification. l
This invention relates to improvements in that class of freight-oer doors which are genemily errengedlwithin the car, and which are edepted to close the entrance in the-side of the car and coniine the grain orother material in' bulk inV the cnr independentlyV of'the outside' sliding doors.
The invention has particular -refeerice to doors of the kind which are arranged to slide, into a recess or casing in the car-body when `opened.; and it has for its object to provide simplel means whereby the sliding door canbe easily opened tounloedthe caigend `also to provide .a simple device whereby the door is prevented from being forcedioutwardly bythe pressure of the material when-being opened or when partly opened. l
The invention consists of the improvements which. will be hereinafter 'fully set forth, and
pointed ont lin the claims. f

` `ing door arrengedjo'n the inside of the-cer and adopted to close thelower. portion of. the'en' trance B; The door Eis preferably constructed y composed of boards,which are secured to vertical rods f, secured-with their lower ends to the door-of the car, y e* G is n horizontal drum arranged inthe casing F,near the rear end thereof; and g is arope, 55 cord, or chain secured with one end to the rear end -of the sliding doorE, and with its opposite end tothe drum G, so that upon turning 4thedr'um in the proper direction the cord g will be Wound upon the drum, and the sliding 6o door Ewill be drawn `into the casing E and thereby clear the entrance. The drum G is mounted uponahorizontal shnuftdh, which is journaled in. suitable bearings -arranged, re spectively, in the side of the car and in a re-4 65 vmovable plete arranged in an opening iny the outer wall of the casing F. Thejshafth projects through `'the outer side of the car, and its- `outer endis made square. f j is a.' detachablehand crank, which is ap- 70 plied tothe cute-rend of the shnfth for turnf in'gthe same.. l y n L The opening inthe casingjF is of '-suiioient(4 ysize to 'permit'of the introduction or removal Y Iofthe drum G. The removable plate is se 75 oured'in this opening by a strep,flc; By this constructionthe drum 4can be readily putin. .'place'in the'csing vor be removed rtherefrom for makingrepairs.' y
lThe lower end of `the' c'asin'gF is open and 80 'terminates' at fashion-t distance above the floor of the car, soas toleave a f -ree space below'tbe casing-into which anyggrain or other materiall whiehmay Work' inl .between vthe door andthe "casingimay fall,"and from which space the 8.5 l `grain-is readily removed. f .j ll represents anti-,friction rollers arranged be- E 10W-the casing F, and upon which the slidin' `doorlE,xtuns'i'n drawing it intothe easing VThese rollersgreatly reduce the 'friction `sind* 9e facilitate the opening of the door.

,easing and the door, and causing the latter t0 confined in'a vertical groove formed in the adjacent post D of the entrance, whereby the frontend of the door is prevented from rising.
o represents a horizontal rod or brace extending across the entrance B on. the outer side oi' the door E, whereby the latter is prevented from being pressed outwardly by the pressure of the grain when the frontend of the door is out of itsgroove. The brace-rod o is arranged in a horizont-al opening formed in one of the posts D, and is eoniined in said opening by an enlargement or head formed at its inner end, as shown in Fig. 2. At its opposite end the rod o is provided with a hook, p, as shown in Fig. 1, which engages in an eye, p', secured toj the adjacent post D. After the door has been opened, the rod o is disconnected from the eye p and pushed laterally into the car, so as to leave the entranceunobstructed, as shown by. .dotted lines in Fig. 2.
I My improved device for opening the cardoor is very simple in construction, and ena bles the door to be opened with great ease.
I claim as my inventionl. The combination, with a freightcar hav,- ingan entranceepening inits side, and 'a easing, F, arranged ou the inside of the car on one side of the entrance, of a sliding door clos ing said entrance and adapted to enter said casing, and a rodl or brace'extending across the entrance on the outside of thesliding door and forming a support for the sliding door, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination, with 'a freight-ear hav- -ing an entrance-opening in. its side, anda casing, F, arranged on one side of said entrance, of a sliding door closing said entrance, a horizontal shaft, h, a drum, G, mounted on said shaft and arranged inthe casing F, a cord or chain, g, connecting said drum with the slid- V ing door, rollers l, arranged below the easing F, a bracerod,o,extending across the entrance for supporting the door, and a handcrank, j; whereby the drum is rotated andthe door drawn into the casing F, substantially as set forth.-
. 3. The eombination,with a freight-car hav ing an entrance-opening and a sliding door` closing said entrance, of a sliding brace rod extending across the entrance on the outer side of the sliding door and arranged'with one end in a horizontal opening formed in one side of the entrance, and provided at its opposite end with a ho'ok which engages in an eye scoured to the opposite side ofthe entrance, substantially as set forth.
4. The combination, with the sliding door E and the casing F, of horizontalguide-rods rm., arranged in said easing, andbetween which the sliding door is held, substantially as set forth. f y
