|Interior view of ZL 488. The gauge in the middle showed brake pipe pressure (normally 70 psi or 500 kpa) the small cock to the right was "the tap" that allowed the guard to exhaust brake pipe air to atmosphere, thus applying the brakes on the entire train. The round wheel to the left was the handbrake.The plate used to blank the centre windows is clearly visible..|
