Tracksionmotor got it basically right but he reversed Brake Pipe
and Straight Air Pipe.

The Straight Air Pipe is used for normal service braking, while
the Brake Pipe is a failsafe for emergency braking only (normally
contains pressure, if the pressure vents, the train goes into
emergency). It's very similar to the system used on tractor-trailers.
