Re: CBS Philly Investigates Runaway SEPTA Train

I can't see why there wouldn't be since, even the NYCT's NTTs have a spring applied, air released parking brake that applies automatically if the air on the cars gets too low. Buses have this type of emergency braking system which in recent years has replaced the manually applied handbrakes as found on older cars. It may just be that the SEPTA employees who were reported to have been on the train may not have been operating employees familiar with the cars and not aware that pulling an emergency cord was all that had to be done.
