All sorts of incidents and situations happen in life. There are times when immediate action is required to save your own life and other passengers. When and how can the train be stopped?
If you find some kind of smoke or other malfunction in the train carriage that carries a threat, then first contact the driver and ask him to stop the train. Communication with the dispatcher occurs through the emergency communication button with the driver. Click on it and speak loudly and clearly. Report an existing problem and ask to stop the train.
If the driver does not answer you for any reason, do not despair. Act on your own. Examine the carriage and find a stop valve, with the help of which an emergency stop of the train is carried out, if necessary. Read the instructions for action written on the wall near the stop valve.
With a sharp movement of your hand, pull the stop valve towards you and disengage it. After a certain short time, the train will stop. Tell the driver about the reason that prompted you to use the stop crane.
If the driver still received your signal with a request to stop the train urgently, he will be able to do it on his own, even if the brakes are out of order. There is a special device in the driver's cab called a counter pair.
The counterpair, when activated, releases puffs of steam towards the movement of the piston, as a result of which the train stops. The counter-pair mechanism is set in motion by setting the adjusting screw and the rocker mechanism to reverse. In this case, the train will move by inertia, slowing down to a complete stop.
