Does anybody have this information?

1,431,567 (10/1922 - F. Church)
1,597,451 (08/1926 - H. Traver)
1,881,151 (10/1932 - H. Traver)
Those probably come the closest to the actual coach design, except that the wheel assembly more closely resembles
1,319,888 (10/1919 - J. Miller)
and the coupler is completely different

Hey thanks Dave,
The links you sighted were really helpful... Especially the link to Victor Canfield's Amusement Ride Patents Page. I'm really interested in the way trains work, in particular the hitches and wheel assemblies of trailered cars, so as you can imagine, I find alot of useful information in the patents. (BTW, you're site is great too)
I've been saving the patent tiff files and complining them into one file, and then saving them as pdf files. This should make them easier to look through and print, and it sure beats spending three dollars to download them from Delphion. I'm not doing anything illegal as long as I don't sell them, so if anybody just plain wants them, just email me and let me know... if you want one I don't have, I can just make it. The files are small, under 800k usually... you can't edit the text though... but who would want to?? Anyway, thanks Dave,
Here We Go!
