Title (EN) PASSENGER CAR WITH EMERGENCY EXIT
(FR) WAGON DE VOYAGEURS DOTE D'UNE SORTIE DE SECOURS
Abstract:
(EN) An elevated passenger car (10) has an emergency exit feature (18). The passenger car (10) is of the type supported such that there are substantially no obstructions between the underside of the car and the ground below it. The car (10) includes a body (12) having a passenger compartment (14) and an opening (18) through the body (12) generally at one end thereof defining an exit from the passenger compartment (14) to outside the body (12). An end section (22) is pivotally mounted on the body (12) at the one end. Fluid pressure actuated cylinders (28) swing the end section (22) between a closed position in which the end section (22) closes the exit (18) and an open position in which said exit is opened to the outside. An elevator (48, 50) supported by the end section (22) in its open position lowers passengers from the elevated passenger car (10).
(FR) Un wagon de voyageurs (10) pour un chemin de fer surélevé possède une sortie de secours (18). Le wagon de voyageurs (10) est du type qui est supporté de sorte qu'il n'existe sensiblement aucune obstruction entre le dessous du wagon et le sol au-dessous. Le wagon (10) comprend un corps (12) muni d'un compartiment de voyageurs (18) et d'une ouverture (18) ménagée dans le corps (12) généralement à une des extrémités de celui-ci et définissant un passage entre le compartiment de voyageurs (14) et l'extérieur du corps (12). Une section terminale (22) est montée pour pivoter sur le corps (12) à ladite extrémité. Des cylindres (28) actionnés par pression fluidique font pivoter la section terminale (22) entre une position fermée dans laquelle la section terminale (22) ferme la sortie (18), et une position ouverte dans laquelle ladite sortie est ouverte à l'extérieur. Un élévateur (48, 50) maintenu par la section terminale (22) en position ouverte fait descendre les voyageurs dudit wagon de voyageurs (10).
