bob schwarer Lyr Add: Wreck of the Old 97 (52* d) RE: Lyr Add: Wreck of the Old 97 18 Feb 01

Heard somewhere that this wreck led to the Westinghouse air brake. You needed to pump up the air line to release the brakes. If air pressure dropped the brakes were applied. Safety brakes.

Don't know if this is true. Haven't gone to the books to check when the Westinghouse brake came into use.
