Now in its Tenth Edition, the Single Car Air Brake Test Procedures manual contains flowcharts depicting the procedures for the current Code of Air Brake System Tests for Freight Equipment: Standard S-486 effective August 8, 2018.
The book is divided into two sections: Test Procedure Flowcharts and Job Aids.
The Test Procedures Flowchart section is derived from the current S-486. It contains test information as well as a troubleshooting guide.
The Job Aid section contains additional inspection, adjustment and testing information for the components found on a freight car. The Job Aids were derived from procedures supplied by product manufacturers along with additional AAR rules and was designed to offer that extra bit of guidance when you just might need it most.
Softcover, 172 pages, vertical format for pockets, Black-and-White illustrations.
