The method at present gen-erally adopted when two pumps are employed on 1 locomotive isshown, and 1 of the novel characteristics of the rack is that all valvesare placed ig duplicate, a single sectioned so as to show the internalworking mechanism, and connected to the valve in use in such a ELECTRICAL Globe and ENGINEER.

The Westinghouse friction draft gear also is shown in section,with a machine particularly made for testing it in operation. Theavailable power which can be e.xerted on the draft gear approximates2,000 pounds. A triple valve testing rack is presented to show themanner in which this device is now becoming installed in several rail-road shops. Sectional components also are shown of the other apparatusof the Westinghouse Air Brake Company and the WestinghouseTraction Brake
