A vestibule is designed to provide a safe and through passage between adjoining coaches of a rake/train. UIC type rubber vestibule consists of three elliptical rubber flanges bolted on to a steel frame. The steel frame is welded to the end stanchion of the coach. The rubber flanges are projected beyond the buffing line of the coach to achieve sufficient pre-compression. A hinged foot plate is provided with support brackets (Angles). A rubber pad is provided over support bracket (Angle) to prevent metal to metal contact. When two coaches are coupled the flanges get compressed against each other thus forming a sealed enclosure all around.
