After watching several runaway car accidents in the 1/8th scale hobby. I decided to design a functioning air brake system for my cars that emulated the Westinghouse automatic air brakes. The result of my designs are presented here by request of many live steamers that surf the net.

  • Theory of operation

  • Bill of Materials

  • Air system diagram

  • Mechanical system diagram

  • Brake stand drawing (Stay Tuned)
    I have the brakestand done and I am happy with its performance I just need to find the time to do the drawing and the conversion instructions.
