Locomotive brake systems need to be up to set requirements at all times for operational safety purposes. These locomotive brake systems require regular maintenance checks and tests to ensure that they are in working condition and safe for use.
The following is an example of what you will find in the app: With the independent and automatic brake valve handles in the RELEASE position, apply the independent brakes. When the brakes apply on all units, release the independent brakes. When the brakes are released on all units, apply the automatic brakes by making a 10 pound brake pipe reduction. When the brakes apply on all units, return the automatic brake valve handle to the RELEASE position. When the brakes are released on all units, apply the automatic brakes by making a 20 pound brake pipe reduction. When the brakes apply on all units, depress the independent brake valve handle (actuate) and make sure the brakes release on all units. Return the brake valve handles to their required positions.
This is a great resource for those working on trains, inspections, railroads inspections or anyone needing hands-on training with an easy-to-follow checklist.

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
