P'ATENTED APR. 17, 1906.


pn'rrnn Jul No. erases.

'To all whom it may/concern.-

Be it known that LFnnpnmcrN/V. KEN- NEDY, a citizen of the United States, residin at Shelbyville, in the county of Shelby and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Linin s for Traction-Vehicles; and I do hereby eclare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enableothers skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

Thisinvention relates to improvements in lining for traction-vehiclesfand particularly to a sectional lining or binior a car.

The object of the inv e'ntion is the provision of means for facilitating the shipment of material in bulkas, for instan'ce, grain.

With this and other objects in view the invention consists of certain other novel constructions, combinations, and arrangements of parts, as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying di awings, and more particularly pointed out in the claims hereto appended.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a transyerse sectional view of a railway-car provided with my im roved linin Fig.2 is a perspective view 0 the adjustable sectional lining or bin. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the sections of the lining.

Referring to the d1 swings, 1 designates the body of a vehicle, preferably a railway-car, Within which is. ositioned a removable sectional lining, w 'ch com rises sections 2. These sections are-prefers ly manufactured aper, either plain or crimped. The

- size 0 the sections may be varied at the option of the constructor for the purpose of conforming to the difference in the measurement of a car. The sections maybe also con structedof cloth fabric, said sections to be secured. together by sewing instead of gluing the overla ping portions; as may be done when emp oying paper sections to construct the lining or bin in the car. The sections may be temporarily secured together by, any

' suitable fastening means, so that they may be removed from a car and replaced. in another car, 1f desired.

A box car may beemployed for shipping material 1n;bulk as, for instance, gram-by employing my'sectlonal lining or bin. In

someinstances the lining may be em loyed to prevent leaks incars' while. the loan ed car is 1n transit.

Specification of Letters E'atent.

Application filed October 21, 1905- Serial No. 283,82

' Each section 2, Fig. 3,.coinprises a strip 3,

Patented April 1'2, I996.

folded intermediate its length, as at 4, and upon the lower edgeof said strip 3 there is formed a longitudinal flap 5, which normally lies in engagement with bottom piece 6, that is provided with a flap 7, which normally ensection the edges of each section are reinforced by the flap 7 and a flap 7, of substantially the same size as that portion of strip 3 constituting the end of the section, thereby materially increasing. the durability of the lining at that part which is liable to be sub. jected to the greatest amount of wear.

While I preferably construct the sections of paper or fabric, it will be obvious that the lining or bin may be formed of metal. The sections may be adjusted ion itudinally or transversely for increasing or ecreasing the size of the bin constituted thereby, as said sections preferably overlap at all oi their enga ing. edges, Fig. 2.

I Vhat I claim is 1. In a car, the combination with a body,

-of a removable, sectional lining positioned within saidbody, each section of said lining reinforced upon its lower, outer edges.

3. In a car, the combination with a body, of a sectional lining positioned Within said body, each section comprising a side strip folded intermediate its length, said strip rovided with flaps 11,021 its lower edge, a ottom strip engaging said flaps, said bottom strip provided with flaps u on its outer edges engaging the sides of sai side strip.

l. In a car, the combination with a body, of a lining positioned within said body, said lining comprising overlapping sections, each section reinforced upon its lower, outer ed e. 5.

6. In a car, the combination with a body,

of a lining carried by said body, said lining comprising similarly-constructed sections, each section comprising a base or bottom, and an end and a side secured to said bottom, said bottom of the same width as the height of said end and side,


7. In ii coir, tho combination with a. body, of a. scctionaiiining carried byP-miii 'ivmiy, mach section of soid lining comprising a bottom, a side, and an en i,sai i side and bottom oo'ing of the some iiiniiensions and of similar siruoturo, whereby the side may be einpiovoii as the bottom when assembling tho ECU-110025.

8. In a (1:11, the? combinahon with a body, of a lining carried by said body, said iiniog comprising overlapping, iiiy-ii'im'ablo sootions, each section omnprising a base, on and, and o side.
