Title: Motion rotating seat particularly for a railway vehicle

Abstract: This seat comprises a mobile upper part (14) for accommodating at least one occupant, borne by a stationary lower part forming an underframe (16) and means (28) for turning the upper part (14) round to face the other way, and back again. These turning-round means (28) comprise a carriage (30), secured to the upper part (14), mounted so that it can be rotated about a roughly vertical axis (Z), connected with this carriage, and so that it can be moved in translation roughly at right angles to this axis of rotation (Z) in a straight guide (32) borne by the underframe (16). The turning-round means (28) also comprise means (52) for driving the translational movement of the carriage (30), and meshing means (54) for converting the translational movement of the carriage (30) into a rotational movement of this carriage (30).
