Rapid Discharge System


The Type G rapid discharge system, which is designed for retrofitting to existing cars with locks on each door and an under center sill brake rod, allows a single person to operate two doors from either side of a car. The system can be furnished with single or double linkages to allow use in handling coal or other heavier commodities.
