Parking Brake?

Posted by Train Dude on Mon Apr 24 10:01:47 2006, in response to Re: SMEE, posted by tracksionmotor on Sun Apr 23 03:36:09 2006.

My understanding is that the M-7 braking system is much like any other rail car. When in emergency, the TBUs are fed through 'Main Reservoir' air to hold the brake. It's only when the main reservoir air in sufficiently depleted that it can't hold the train that the Automatic Parking Brake is activated. Am I misinformed about the parking brake and the brake system in general?
