The general object of my invention is to pro
15
vide improvements in the means shown in my
Patent Nos. 2,016,731, October 8, 1935, 2,038,692,
April 28, 1936, and 2,030,773, February 11, 1936,
for variably partitioning the interior of a box car
20 to divide the same into‘ holding compartments
and/or to support therein floors or platforms
whereby one and the same car may be used to
hold mixed kinds and/or sizes of goods in sep
carrying the sliding bolts.
‘
.
The reference numeral l designates the car'
body which is or may be of usual box body form,
and comprises the bottom 2, side walls 3, end 15
walls l, and roof 5. The bottom 2, end walls
4 and roof 5 may be of any suitable and approved
construction.- The side walls 3, however, may
be of special construction,- as disclosed in my
Patent No. 2,030,773, to adapt the same for use
in conjunction with supporting and/or parti
tioning members, whereby the interior of the car,
between the end walls and the doorways 8 may
be divided into goods holding compartments,
arate lots and in such manner as to keep the
25
25 lots separated from each other, and to prevent _ and/or provided with shelves or platforms for
shifting of the goods-in transit and to enable the
full capacity of the car to be used for shipment of
such goods to same destination or to di?erent
destinations.
'
The particular object of.the invention is to
provide partitioning and supporting means across
30
' the doorways and across the interior of the car
between the doorways for the purposes above de
supporting goods of different sizes or kinds
therein.
'
‘
Each side wall 3 is provided with a doorway
6 including door posts 1, which posts are pro
vided ‘with a vertical row of perforations 8 lo
cated adjacent to the inner corners of the posts
facing the doorway.
-
The side walls of the car are faced inside of '
scribed, and which are of such construction as r the car with strips or sheets 9 covering substan
‘p35 to furnish a more convenient and flexible ar-‘ tially the entire area of the side walls from top
' rangement for changing the supporting and par
titioning elements as may be required under dif
ferent conditions of service, and to provide the
supporting elements which span the doorways
40 with perforations similar to the perforations in
the lining of the car, so that the inner face of
the .door spanning member is ?ush with the face
of the lining whereby I ‘obtain continuous rows
of perforations, from end to end of the car, all
45 rows of perforations in the door spanning mem
ber lining up with the perforations. in the lin
ing sheets of the car.
'
The invention consists of the features of con
struction, combination and arrangement'of parts
510 hereinafter vfully described and claimed, refer
encebeing had to the accompanying drawings

vertical rows of perforations 10' (preferably elon
gated, the edges'of the sheets being- suitably se
cured to the door posts 1. Thelends of the sup
ports H are suitably secured in the perforations
iii of the lining sheets to support the shelves I2,
as fully described in my Patent Nos. 2,030,773
and 2,038,692.

From experience in loadingand operating these 5
cars I have found that'it is desirable to provide
the doorway spanning bar it with horizontal and
vertical rows of perforations corresponding with
the perforations in the side wall lining, and to
so position said bar in the doorway that its front a
face is flush with the vertical plane of the per
forated lining'of the car side walls to ensure that
a series of these bars may be set up in the door
way to obtain continuous rows of vperforations

- forations in the bars lining up'wlth the rows
of perforations in the car side linings.
The-door bar II is shown as a channel shape
in one end of which, and in the channel thereof,
is suitably secured an angle l5 to one arm of
which are ?xed locking members or studs it
which are adapted to be seated in the vertical
row- of perforations 8 of the door posts ‘I. To the
terior of the car between’ the doorways, ?xed
locking projections extending from one end of
each ?rst-named‘ supporting member and de
signed for engagement with the perforations‘ in '
one of said door posts, and slidable locking pro 5
jection at the opposite end of each first-named
supporting member designed to engage the'per
forations in the‘ opposite perforated ‘post, said
other end of the door bar It, and in the chan
locking members being so mounted on said sup
10 nel thereof, I suitably secure a' casting I! hav
porting members that when the supporting mem
ing bolt slideways (two being shown) in which bers are in ,locked position the inner faces of
suitable bolts 20 are slidably mounted, said bolts i said supporting members will be ?ush with the
having an operating handle or knob 2|, whereby 1 faces of said lining sheets and the perforations
the bolts may be operated to locked and un
of the supporting members will line up with the
15 locked position. -A slideway 22 is provided in perforations in the lining sheets to obtain con 15
which said handle may be moved, the ends of the tinuous rows of perforations from end to end of
slideway being at right angles to the straight-'
the car in the same plane.

20 or unlocked position.v These bolts are designed
to engage and become locked'in the vertical two
of perforations 8 in the opposite post.
The'angle l5 and casting W are of proportions
relative to the depth of the channel of ‘the door
25 bar I3 to offset the studs l6 and bolts 2@ rear

horizontal rows ‘of elongated perforations, door
ways for the car, the door posts of which have a
vertical row of perforations, supporting members
having rows of elongated perforations designed
to support partitioning or supporting members to

locked position the inner face of said ?rst named
supporting members will be ?ush with the faces
forations on the door posts, so that a series of
these bars it can be set up in the doorway to
obtain continuous rows of perforations from end
