Title: DEVICE AT A SET OF WAGONS HAVING LATERALLY TILTABLE WAGON BODIES
Abstract:
Device at a set of wagons having laterally tiltable bodies (4) for bridging the distance between the wagon bodies (4). When loading a set of wagons with laterally tiltable wagon bodies so-called continuous loading cannot be utilized as in that case spilling in the space between the wagon bodies occurs. It is the object of this invention to enable continuous loading without wastage by means of the device of the invention. The device of the invention consists of a flap (13) which is pivotably attached to the rear end of the wagon body (4) as seen in the direction of travel of the train. The flap (13) is pivotable about an axis transverse to the longitudinal direction of the set of wagons and has such an extension that it overlaps the following wagon body (4).
