BACKGROUND & PROBLEM
Inspecting and testing rail car air brakes, a common railroad task, is a fundamental part of a railroad’s initial training for Conductors and rail car Mechanics. This inspection and testing, known as a Class 1 Air Brake Test (CFR 232), requires railroads to have multiple rail cars on-site and allocate a significant amount of training time for demonstration and practice.

SOLUTION OVERVIEW
To make procedural knowledge readily available in classroom training and in the field, Railroads can deploy a Virtual Interactive Guide (VIG) covering the Air Brake Test process.
The VIG guides workforce through steps of the Air Brake Test with individual steps in both text and 3D animation. Ability to replay, move forward/back, search and jump to steps. Necessary safety and technical information is displayed.

Used for: Classroom Training, Self-paced refresher, Job Aid (Field) tool.

AFTER USING THIS SIM, STUDENTS WILL:

  • Identify and determine the correct positioning of rail car air brake system components
  • Manipulate air brake system components and determine correct brake pipe pressure.
  • Understand the steps of an Air Brake Test.

FEATURES:

  • Guide your students through all steps required to complete an Air Brake Test
  • Offer experience on a variety of car types: Gondola, Flat, Box, Tanker, Hopper, Well/Intermodal
  • Train on many defects: Air hose leak, Pistok leak, Angle Cock leak, Retainer Valve leak, Cut Out Cock leak

DEPLOYMENTS:

PC, VR, Mobile, LMS
