Electric Railway Journal, Vol. 54 : November 1, 1919 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Electric Railway Journal, Vol. 54: November 1, 1919 Early in the building of the air brake Mr. Westinghouse saw and appreciated the necessity for creating ways and means for carrying forward successfully the work he individually had so well begun. He built shops, installed highest grade machinery and employed the most skillful workmen obtainable. Extensive laboratories were fitted with delicate and accurate testing instruments and placed in charge of a large corps of scientific air-brake engineers. An exceptionally strong force of trained air-brake experts has been distributed over the railroads to not only assist and advise railroad men in air-brake problems, but to finger the pulse of the close-up air-brake service so as to quickly absorb into the air-brake art the valuable lessons taught by practical experience.
