SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 609,178, dated August 16, 1898. Application filed February 13, 1894. Renewed June 29,1898. Serial No. 684,734. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, BERNAL BAGSHAWE, of Headingly, Leeds, York county, England, have invented a new and useful Improvement in WVearingLiners for Oar-Trucks, of which the following is a full, true, and exact description, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings.

4 This invention relates to an improvement in car-trucks made of pressed steel in which the journal-boxes slide or movevertically in pedestals attached within suitable openings in the truck-frames.

My invention consists in providing the pedestals with wearing plates or liners to receive the contact-surfaces of the j ournal-boXes,said wearing-plates fitted all around the axle-box opening.

It further consists in providing a pedestal of improved construction.

My invention will be readily understood from the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 represents a lateral elevation of one end of the side frame of a truck; Fig. 2, a sectional plan view through Fig. 1 on line 2 2 in the direction of the arrow. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the connecting-strap. Fig. 4 is a section of the strap, taken at the line 3 3, Fig. 1. Figs. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10, and 11 are sectional plan views of modifications, taken as through a line at 4, Fig. 1.

A indicates one end of the side plate of a car-truck, with an opening in which a pedestal B is secured by rivets H or other suitable means. The pedestal is made of T iron or steel in one piece. It may be made of two angled parts, as shown in Fig. 10, in which case the frame A is riveted between the two The pedestal when made integral may have a single projecting flange for attachment to the frame A, or it may be provided with two such flanges, as shown in Fig. 11, between which the frame edge is secured. The inner surface of the pedestal maybe provided with recesses or grooves, as shown in Figs. 2 and 8, with beveled edges, as shown in Figs. 9 and 11, orit may be smooth, with square corners.

The journal-boxisadapted to slide Within the pedestal, and in order to prevent the wearing which would occur when the sides of the cast journal arerough and the pedestal c011- structed of soft material I provide a wearing plate or liner 0, which conforms to the inner surface of the pedestal, to which it is removably attached. The outer surface of this wearing-liner is made to engage the pedestal by means of ribs, beveled flanges, or straight flanges f, according to the contour of the inner surface of the pedestal employed.

The lower ends of the wearing-plate and pedestal are provided with short lateral registering slots, within which'are secured by bolts G or otherwise the ends of the strap or bar D, 'which extends across the opening of the pedestal and keeps the wearing-liner in place by engaging the slots formed therein. The bar D is provided with shoulders d, which bear against the wearing-liner and hold it in place against the sides of the pedestal. It will thus be seen that when the wearing-liners become worn they may be easily removed and new ones substituted.

The wearing-liner maybe made in one piece or in several sections. In the forms illustrated in Figs. 9 and 11, in which the wearing-liners are connected to the pedestals by a dovetail joint, it is obvious that the side sections, extending to points. X X, Fig. 1, must be made separate from the top portion, as only the side sections could be adjusted in place by such a connection- The top section may be fitted to the pedestal by any of the forms of attachment shown and will of course be held in place by the side sections. This part of my improvement consists in the application of a detachable wearing-liner extending all around the axle-box opening-to the pedestal of all truclnframes in which a journalbox slides',whether such pedestals are made of one continuous strip or in two strips attached to opposite sides of the pedestal-opening in the side frame of the truck.

What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- g 1. In a truck-frame, a wearing-liner fitting all around the axle-box opening, and provided with one or more flanges engaging the truck frame, substantially as specified.

2. In a truck-frame, the combination of aname to this specification in the presence of pedestal composed of two angle-strips and a two subscribing Witnesses. Wearing-liner fitting all around the axle-box Y 4 openingand provided with one or more flanges BERNAL BAGSHAWVE' 5 engaging the angle-strips, substantially as Witnesses:
