  1. A stencil, badge plate, or decal inside the locomotive cab will indicate ?
    maximum break cylinder pressure for that particular locomotive
  2. The J relay does what for breaking effort?
    J-relay is used to regulate braking effort. It will equalize engine breaking effort.
  3. In what order are the MU hoses attached?
    • BMAI
    • Brake Pipe Hose
    • Main Reservoir hose
    • Actuating hose
    • Independent Application and Release hose
  4. How is pressure determined for the Break Pipe hose?
    observe the Badge Plate, the J-Relay equalizes breaking pressure to same effort
  5. What must the breaking pressure for the Main Reservoir Equalizing hose be?
    130-145 PSI
  6. What pressure must the Actuating hose be?
    • Zero 
    • or 130-145PSI
  7. What must the Independent Application and Release hose pressure be once hooked on?
    0-45 PSI
  8. The independent brake is also called the?
    "engine brake" or "locomotive break"

    because it only applies to the engine
  9. Straight air brakes (or Independent brakes)

    Apply by (.........) air pressure
    and
    Release/reduce brakes by (.........) air pressure.
    • increasing air pressure
    • and
    • releasing/reducing air pressure
  10. Automatic Air brakes
    Apply brakes by (...........) break pipe pressure
    and
    release brakes by (...........) break pipe pressure
    • decreasing brake pipe pressure
    • and
    • increasing break pipe pressure
  11. Which break would be considered a road brake?
    • Automatic brake
    • because
    • it applies to train and locomotives and has a large amount of brake piping to do.
