 Freight & Locomotive Brake Training Publications

Annual training classes are held at our facility in the spring and fall. Separate courses cover Locomotive and Freight Car Air Brakes. The classes are 3 1/2 days long and provide more in-depth training for people wanting a better understanding or are wanting more knowledge of train brake equipment.  Each class in Wilmerding starts at 8:30 am and runs until 3:45 pm Tuesday through Thursday.  Friday’s class will start at 8:30am but will end in the morning to allow for travel. Personal protective equipment needed for the class is safety approved footwear.
 
Freight Air Brake Class: The freight car air brake training is designed around the Single Car Test Procedure per AAR S-486. We start at basic brakes defining the reason for brakes and testing. From there we cover history of air brakes and the various components that make up a typical freight car. This includes single capacity and empty/load equipment. Once the student understands the makeup of the brake system, we cover train brakes and terminal brake testing. Thursday is spent on Single Car Testing. We define the proper test procedure and the end of the day will be spent on the written exam. Friday is spent with the automated test devices and the test procedures. We will take time to try various applications and simulations with the 150 car air brake rack . Thursday we will take time for a tour of our facility. Note, we cannot provide the final item for air test certification per FRA 232 requirements in our facility in Wilmerding. We do not have a railcar for the student to do the practical test. For those that need to be certified alternate arrangements can be made for on-site training.
