Woods Westinghouse E-T Air Brake Instruction Pocket Book.

5 in. by 67/2 in., 55 illustrations, bound in cloth, Published by the Norman W. Henley Publishing Company, 2 West Forty-fifth street,

New York. Any book on air brake equipment must be strictly up to date to be of value, particularly if the book relates to the E-T type, which has undergone very rapid development to meet the ever-increasing demands upon locomotive brake equipment. This book, which has just come off the press, not only contains a full description of the E-T 6, which is the most recent type placed on locomotives, but is a very complete text on the design and operation of the entire E-T equipment and accessory apparatus. The text is admirably illustrated with cuts of the various parts of this apparatus and diagrammatic views showing each zone of air pressure in a distinctive color. This book should be of great assistance to locomotive engineers and others interested in the operation of the E-T brake equipment who are so located that they cannot take advantage of the lectures and demonstration afforded in an air brake instruction car and it should also be of value to traveling engineers, air brake inspectors and instructors not only for the information contained in the volume, but for the reason that these colored diagrams afford a very simple and effective method for instructing others in the workings of this intricate apparatus.
