Application July 19, 1938, Serial No. 220,108 Renewed June. 15, 1939 .1 Claim. (01. 191-45) u 7 current conductive material which ride on the This invention appertains to new and. useful improvements in rolling stock for toy railways and more particularly to the electric type.
. The principal object of the present invention is to provide a toy railway of the electric type wherein two rails are employed of positive and negative polarity and wherein the wheels of the rolling stock serve as collectors for the motor and electrical appliances of the rolling stock." Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent to the reader of the following specification. In the drawings:
Figure 1 represents a bottom plan view of a locomotive constructed in accordance with the present invention with parts broken away.
Figure 21s a bottom plan view of one of the cars showing certain parts in sections. g Figure 3 is a cross sectional view through one of the wheel assemblies.
Figure i is a perspective view of the trackway. Referring to the drawings wherein like numerals designate like parts, it can be seen in Figure 1 that numeral 5 represents the locomotive body,
the same having the swingable front wheels gen erally referred to by numeral 6 and including the body I of insulation pivotally connected by the tongue 8 to the motor housing 9. Fromthethrough one end portion'of which extends the axle l8 on which are the wheels I9 ofinsulation while at the other end of the body I! stub axles 20 extend therefrom and carry the wheels 2| of the last-mentioned stub axle.
rails i2 and I3.
Wires 22 extend from the stub axles I0 and also from the stub axles 20 into the motor of the locomotive.
As shown in Figure 2,'-the car 23 has the two wheel assembliesz l, one at each end of the car and each'consists of a body having a head portion at each end thereof from which extend the stub axles 26. On each assembly 26, a pair of the stub axles 26 has the wheels 21 of insulation mounted thereon for riding engagement with the positive and negative rails l2, and [3, while the ,other pair of stub axles 28-28 on this assembly carry the wheels 25! of ourrentcollecting material and from these stub axles 28 extend the wires 36 to the lights and other appliances in the car.
While the foregoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to be understood that numerous changes in the shape, size and ma terials may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
In a toy electricrailway "rolling stock comprising a vehicle body, front and rear wheel trucks, one of the said trucks comprising an elongated body of insulation, stub axles extending into the elongated body of insulation and provided with wheels on the outer ends thereof, taps on the said stub axles, the other truck being pro vided with a pair of elongated members of insulation, one of the last-mentioned members of insulation having an axle extending therethrough, wheels of insulation mounted on the ends of the "last-mentioned axle, said last-mentioned truck having its other elongated body of insulation provided with a pair of stub axles extending therefrom and wheels of current conductive material on the last-mentioned stub axle, and taps from VERNON N.
