Amsted Rail - Brakes

Ellcon offers brakes, Models 35000 and 35000-2 (AAR Group P), designed for 125-ton capacity and larger cars. However, the brake can be used on any special car where an exceptionally high force is required. The brake comes with a 22-inch pressed-steel wheel and produces a minimum of 6,800 pounds of force in the vertical chain. Model 35000-2 has an extended trip lever. This is a 1993 AAR-approved hand brake.
