CHARLES L. McVOY, OF PENSACOLA, FLORIDA.
RAIL-JOINT.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 4, 1907.
Application filed anuary 16,1907. Serial 115.. 352,593.
To all whom it may concern:-
Be it known that 1,. CHARLES L. MoVoY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Pensacola, in the county of Escambia and State of Florida, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rail-Joints and I 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 whichit appertains to make and use: the
same. v
This invention relates to improvements in the construction of steel :rails, and the primary object of the invention is to so foijmthe ends of 'the rails that they may readily be put together and form a rigid scarf, whereby the use of fish plates is avoided and whereby a portion of one rail interlaps w th the other-so that'at no time are the wheel of the trucks, when passing over a joint, entirely supported by the end of one rail, but by the interlapping ends of bothrails, preventing jolting and longitudinal horizontal section through thevertical web of the rails below the tread portion, and Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the cut away end of the rails.
1 designates one of the rails provided with base, as in the ordinaryconstruction of steel rails, but provided at its end with a thickened web 2 extending laterally on each side ofthe vertical web and formin a reinforced portion for a purpose hereina ter referred to. As shown more clearly in Figs. 2 and 3, this thickened web portion is cut away in a plane extending longitudinally through the center thereof, forming a tongue 3 havmg a flat face 4 and in the same plane the base flange 5 "at the bottom of one side of said web is cut away as at 6 but leaving a projecting end 7 adjacent the inner end of said tongue and forrmng with the flat face thereof the inwardly extending rectangular recess 8 between the i a tread portion, a vertical web and a flanged .said base'fla'nge, the said rail being tread, portion 9 and the base flange. The tread portion 9 also terminates in a position between the outer end of the tongue 3 and the short projection 7 of the flange.
At the outer lower edge of the tongueis formed the notched out portion 10, the upper surface of said notched out portion being substantially in alinement with the upper face of the flanged base so that the flange 5 on the 0p osite side, from the cut away portion-6, is aso cut away adjacent the notch 10.
It .Will be observed that in manufacturing the rails, the endswill be reversely recessed so that either end of one rail will fitits complementary end of any other rail.
It will also be seen that when the rails are assembled in position the two flat faces of. the tongue 4 will lie snugly side by side, the
notched end 10 of one tongue seating snugly within the recess 8 of its complementary fail, the treads on both rails extending at their ends on the upper edges of the tongues of the oppositerails and abuttin at their ends, so that while there is a uni orm tread surface, the weight of the trucks in passing over the joint at no time is taken up solely 'on the end of either of the treads, but by the end of. the one tread supported or trussed by the pro 'jecting tongue portion formed by the thickened vertical web of the other rail.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is A rail provided at one end with a tongue,
the inner face of which lies in a vertical plane extending longitudinally through the center of the vertical web and a portion of the flanged base of the rail; the tread portion of said rail being cut away'above the end portion of said tongue and the lower outer edge of said tongue being notched out, above the line of the top of the flange; and the cutaway portion ofsaid vertical web forming said tongue terminating inwardly in a rectan ular recess formed in the vertical'web of sai' rail above adapted to cooperate. with a similarly forme reversed rail to'make a rigid scarf joint, substantially 5 described.
In testimony whereof, I affix mysignature, in presence of two-witnesses.
