Motive Power Operation Online Training
From Online Training
This course teaches how to start, operate and properly shutdown a locomotive. We also include how to properly control in-train forces (buff and draft) and how to prevent a jackknife or string line derailment. The proper use of the air brake system, reading gauges, and the use of the throttle are thoroughly described. How to start and stop on ascending and descending grades? It’s in there. Even if your company uses a Shuttle Wagon, Rail King or Track Mobile, many of the same principles and procedures apply.
