Request ID: FOI-2679-1617
Date published: 24 April 2017

You asked

I am writing to find out up-to-date data on the pneumatic system used on LU trains for braking systems and other functions. I particularly want to know about the compressor used and the main air reservoir tank under the carriages.I believe there is a rolling stock data sheet. Is there a more modern version than the 2nd edition? I am asking because of a university project. I am looking for a more accurate rolling stock data sheet than the 2nd addition that can be found online.
