Description

TTCI's Train Air Brake Research Facility consists of 150 complete car sets of air brake equipment. Operated independently of the air brake manufacturers, the test rack is used purely for research. Capable of simulating a diverse range of train types and lengths, these simulations are used to analyze ways to improve the current air brake system. In addition, this facility plays a vital role in the development of new and advanced braking systems. The control room contains a computerized data collection system and the locomotive brake valve.
