Vacumn Brakes in CA

Post by Randy Hees » Thu Feb 19, 2015 11:11 pm

I was looking at Earl Hanson's book on the California & Nevada, and while looking at the bottom of two of their passenger cars (rolled over) realized that they used vacuum brakes... Looking further I see the muffler on the locomotives...

The builders of the line were from Colorado... so may have had experience in such brakes...
