moldings to be used in metal vir'iter'ior"Work-ior produc- .ing ornamentaleffects in cornices,v 'panels'and the like,

and'relates more yparticularly to moldings applicableto the insidefniish of the higher grade of'steel' passenger cars; my object 4 being to providemoldings whichlmay vbe bolted in place andthe bolt heads concealed so as to v presenta vsmooth and artistic appearancefthercby enablingme to employ an all-steel 'construction for tlrein"l` .iside finish. Iatta'inmy object byconstructing themoldings as'illustratedjin the. accompanying drawings, 7- /in which-*Z* i Figure lrepresentsa side elevationoi avportion oi a carinteiiior with in sidefsheathing'- or surface plates and partitions oi-metal, having applied,theretocornicq corner'fand panel lmoldings embodying my invention; Figi-2, a horizontal seetionoi Fig. 'l Where said figure .ist

In carrying out invention the interior of a car or other structure Willbc finished with metal sheathing or Asurface plates attached to the frame-Work in any approved. manner. yThese sheathing or surface plates l will preferably be fastenedtogether along their meeting edges' by means of flanges 2 formed thereon upon the reverse side, said fianges being riveted together and the seam covered and concealed by means'oi a V-shaped.,

pieceof metal 3 riveted in betweenthe flanges, this joint between plates being described and claimed in a companion application. Where there are partitions, the cross-plates forming-the partitions'will be secured v to the side plates and the rivet joints concealed by corner moldings produced in conformity with my invenl tion. In Figs. `1 and 2 a transverse'partition plate is shown at 4 riveted tothe side plate l by. means of angles 5, the rivet heads on the inside being concealed by means oi light metal plates 6 sprung in between the limbs of the angles, said limbs near their outer edges being provided with longitudinal projections 7 formed Veither by grooving the angles or' by slightly bending up the edges of the plates of which the angles are made.

Specification of Letters Patent.

aber 24, 190e. senti No. 344,855.,

. ,e .Y vivhere:desirable (as atthe lin'e'o v e F. ,Krnsnt, Jr., -acitizen a `A of the United `States,residing at Altoona, in the countyl oJBlair and State oi lPennsylvania, have invented certain-new and useful Improvements in "ltloldingsgoi Patented sett; 17, 1907.

v e the spring o the arch o the lower deck Aceilingin, car interiors), I provide cornice ,moldingf formed from' comparatively l thin plates of steel orothcr metalv pressed or drawn into.

suitable ornamental shapes, said"cornice moldings ybeing provided With longitudinal channels to receive the rivets by `Which they are bolted to thesheathing and ing is in place, Will be filled by a suitable insert to conceal theirivetjs and give to the cornice a smoOtll and artistic finish. As shownfinlligsyl and 3, this insert 'consists Oia metal plate having daring side flanges l `Which are-sprung into the channel formed' in the moldfing'7 said` channel'being of dove-tail section, to retain the inetal insert vin place. This insertrnay be o the same linetalzas the'inolding, or'oi a different metal to :produce any desired eol'or effect. `The molding at each f side of the channel vvill be completedby bending the nplate outwardly therefrom withl any desired-curves and angles and finally back to points in alineincnt with the back of the channel, so that the edges of the molding at top and bottonrwill rest against the sheathing plates.

These' top and bottom edges of the inoldingfinay eX- tendv slightly beyond 'thel lino of the back o the channel in order that, when the molding is riveted in place, said edges may bear tightly against the surface of the sheathing plates. The spring action of the insert also assists vinpressing these top and bottom edges against the plates.

To break vup the plainness of the metal panels thus produced, orto frame in window and door openings eut 'through the-panels, I provide moldings `10 which are riveted to the sheathing plates or to rainc members partition plates. This channel, after the cornice mold where they lic back oi the sheathing plat-cs, said moldings being litted together by niiter joints where they inclosea-space on, oran opening through, the plates. These moldings I0 are also formed roln steel or other metal plateshaving longitudinal channels, thc plates at veach `side of the channels being bent outwardly and then backwardly to bring their outer edges in alinemcntw'ith the back of the channel. lnlFigs. l, 2 and 4 thesepanel moldings are shown with dove-tail channels, andtlieinsert plates ll 'are similar to the inserts 9, being sprung into the channels after the moldings have been bolted into place. i These panel moldings', at'each side of the channels7 may be pressed or drawn into any desirable shapes.

' left hand side of Fig. 5 consists of a channel-with the sides bent inward and provided with `rentrant' flanges between which the insert plate 1l. is sprung. At the.

right han'd side of the figure, a molding is shown in which the envelop l5 is provided with bent-in sides and rentrant flanges, the-channel so formed being completelyllled with an insert of plastic material 16.

In place of the plain angle moldings for corners, described in connection with Figs. 1 and 2, lmay employ angles 17 (see Fig: 6), having their outward vedges bent to form a ,longitudinal channel with outward return 'bends having curves and angles to produce a moreornamental effect, the insert in this case being preferably of plastic material, as shownat 18.

As. thus described,l moldings of various ornamental designs may be produced from bent metal plates and fastened wherever required to finish oft cornices, corners, panels, windowand door casings, and the like, the

means by which they are fastened -in place being entirely concealed, with artistic and pleasing effect.

What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by I Letters-Patent is: v

LPA molding provided with a dove-tail channel having bolt holes at the back thereof, in combination with andusert comprising a plate of channel form having flaring sides adapted to be sprung' into said channel after the bolts are in place.

2. A molding' comprising a-vmetal plate bent to form a longitudinal channel, the plate at each side of the channel beingl bent outwardly and then backwardly, the back'- ward bends terminating at points in alinement .with the-4 back of the channel, said channel back 'pelng provided with one or more bolt holes, and an insert adaptedto b applied to the Achannel toA conceal'the bolts.
