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


Westinghouse patented his air brake and founded the Westinghouse Airbrake Co. in 1869. Air brakes became mandatory on US trains in 1893. Do not know how that fits in with the problems of Old 97.

Here are a few sites for homework tonight:

Pop quiz possible.
