A stencil, badge plate, or decal inside the locomotive cab will indicate ?
maximum break cylinder pressure for that particular locomotive
The J relay does what for breaking effort?
J-relay is used to regulate braking effort. It will equalize engine breaking effort.
In what order are the MU hoses attached?
- Brake Pipe Hose
- Main Reservoir hose
- Actuating hose
- Independent Application and Release hose
How is pressure determined for the Break Pipe hose?
observe the Badge Plate, the J-Relay equalizes breaking pressure to same effort
What must the breaking pressure for the Main Reservoir Equalizing hose be?
What pressure must the Actuating hose be?
What must the Independent Application and Release hose pressure be once hooked on?
The independent brake is also called the?
"engine brake" or "locomotive break"
because it only applies to the engine
Straight air brakes (or Independent brakes)
Apply by (.........) air pressure
Release/reduce brakes by (.........) air pressure.
- increasing air pressure
- releasing/reducing air pressure
Automatic Air brakes
Apply brakes by (...........) break pipe pressure
release brakes by (...........) break pipe pressure
- decreasing brake pipe pressure
- increasing break pipe pressure
Which break would be considered a road brake?
