pfovidéitliese features, the
The invention relates ‘to the construction of from-‘each other.‘
models of truck assemblies for model railway . invention includes novel meansior connecting the
bolster‘! with the end frames 5'and 6. ' The bol-'

I
51 miniature or model railway equipment which will
resemble withinuch ?delity the exterior appear;
ance of full-sized structures. The small scale to
which thesemodels are reproduced and the cost
entailed prohibits fastening of the parts in the
10 same manner as they are fastened in the'full
sized equipments. Therefore, construction must
be provided for-the models which will be'rela
tively inexpensive but will cause the assemblies
to have the same general appearance as the cor
16 responding full-sized structures.
Other objects and advantages will become ap
parent as the following detailed description
progresses, reference being had to the accom
panying drawing, wherein
20
Fig. I is a plan view of a model truck assem
bly for railway cars, which model truck assem
bly embodies the invention.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the improved model
truck assembly.

Fig. 3 is a section taken on line 3—3 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a section taken on line 4-4 02f Fig.
3; and
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a fastening or
closure member which forms part of the improved
30 model truck assembly.
Referring to the drawing, in which a preferred
embodiment of the invention is shown, reference
characters 5 and 6 designate the end frames of
a model or miniature truck assembly for minia
35 ture railway cars, the end frames 5 and 6 being
connected together at their centers by a bolster
‘I. The end frames 5 and 6 are provided with
suitable recesses 4 in their ends to receive the
ends of shafts 8 and 9 which have car wheels
40 I0 mounted thereon. '
The end frames 5 and 6 and the bolster l are
preferably cast from soft metal such as ordinary
' white metal, and are preferably cast to reproduce
to scale the similar parts of full-sized structures.
45 Particular efforts are made to have the outer
surfaces of the assembled model car truck ap
pear to be true reproductions of the full-sized
structures.
When the end frames, the bolster, the shafts
50 and wheels have been assembled, the end frames
must be free to adjust themselves somewhat in
dependently of each other to accommodate for
unevenness in the track or surface over which the
model is to move, and the end frames must be
'55 held to a limited movement toward and away
nions I5 ‘which at their outer ends have integral 5
disks I6‘. ‘The disks I6 are disposedlin pocketsor
recesses I‘? provided in inwardlyextending in-'-'
tegralklugs' I8 formed upon the end frames 5' and
6, the recesses‘ or pockets IT being open at their_
upper ends until closed by‘fastening or closure 10
members I9 (Figs. 3, 4 and 5). It will be noted
tnat‘the lugs I8 are provided with downwardly:
extending slots 20 through which the trunnions
I5 project, the construction being such that the
trunnions may rotate in the slots 20 and are 15
slidably mounted therein. As best illustrated in
Fig. 4, each of the lugs I8 is provided at its upper
end with outwardly extending beads or ribs 22 to
permit the associated closure or fastening mem
ber I9 to be attached to the lug so as to prevent- an
accidental removal of the bolster from the as
sociated end frame. The closure or fastening
members I9 are preferably formed from sheet
metal which is su?iciently elastic to permit the
fastening members to be snapped on and off the '25
lugs I8. It will be noted that each member I9 is
formed with a lip or hook 23 at one end and
with a lip or hook 24 at the other, which lip 24
is provided with an extension or ?nger piece 25
which may be grasped when it is desired to re- 30
move the member 29 from its lug I8. It is ob
vious that the lips or hooks 23 and 24 may be
snapped on and off the beads 22.
. '
As best shown in Figs. 3 and 4, there is suf
?cient space in the recesses or pockets IT to per- 35
mit movement of the bolster l upwardly and
downwardly with respect to the end frames 5
l and 6.
' When the apparatus shown in the drawing
is to be assembled, it is only necessary to assemble 40
the wheels III with the shafts 8 and 9 and then
assemble the shafts with the end frames 5 and
6,, after which the bolster may be dropped in
place between the frames and the fastening or
closure members I9 may be snapped in place. 45
The structure is then assembled and may be at
tached to a miniature car.
For this purpose,
the bolster is provided with a, central bore 30 to
receive a king pin (not shown).
While I have shown and described certain em- 50
bodiments of my invention, it is to be understood
that it is capable of many modi?cations.
Changes, therefore in the construction and ar
rangement may be made without departing from
the spirit and scope of the invention as dis- 55
