What are the 4 steps in order to stop while the slack is STRETCHED?
1. Advance Throttle, if necessary, to stretch slack.
2. Make initial reduction and actuate.
3. As speed decreases, make additional BRAKE PIPE reduction as necessary and actuate and gradually reduce throttle to prevent developing excessive locomotive output.
4. As the movement stops, make sure air is exhausting from BRAKE PIPE, place Independent Brake to FULL APPLICATION and place throttle to IDLE.
