[Michael Reynolds]. Heberlein brake is a continuous railway brake used in Germany that is applied by means of a mechanical cable. Train braking is therefore initiated centrally from the locomotive using a winder. This causes the brake clips to be applied on individual wagons, assisted by a servo system which makes use of the rotation of the axle.

The brakes operate automatically if the cable snaps. Get this Continuous railway brakes book a library. Arguments against the use of self-acting continuous railway brakes: June, [F T Haggard].
