Q. In what way does the manipulation of the No. 6 equipment differ from that of the No. 5? A. When second in double heading, or a helper, the engineer closes the cut-out cock in the brake pipe under the brake valve (now called the qdouble-heading cockq) and leaves the handle of the automatic brake valve in running position with the No. 6 equipment; while with the No. 5 equipment, as already stated, he moves that handle to lap.

The double-heading pipe is replaced by the qdistributing-valve release pipe, q which connects the equalizing-valve exhaust port of the distributing valve with the automatic brake valve through the independent brake valve. The application chamber pipe is now called the qapplication cylinder pipe, q and branches, one branch going to each brake val...This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index.
