Westinghouse Brake Booklet

Westinghouse Brake Booklet.

This interesting and informative booklet, recently published by the Engine Drivers, Firemen and Cleaners’ Association, for the information of its members, is dedicated to the memory of the late Mr. R. E. Robertson, who, up to the time of his death in August last, was the Department's Westing-house Brake Inspector.

The late Mr. Robertson was a recognised authority on all matters pertaining to the Westinghouse Air Brake, and the present, high standard of this equipment throughout the rolling stock of the New Zealand Railways, is largely due to the conscientious labours of Mr. Robertson. He had a special gift for imparting his knowledge, in clear and simple language”, and inspired with his own enthusiasm all who came to seek his help and guidance-always so readily given. In the publication of this booklet, the locomotive men, who held him in high and affectionate regard, fittingly perpetuate his memory.
