Red Mountain was Re: Brake gear


David, According to the D&RG Inventory and appraisemsnt sheet dated Sept. 13 1879, the Red Mountain (Car # 200) had Air Brakes.  Since the SRR didn't get the Red Mountain til 1888, I think it can be assumed that the Standard N.G. Plan of 1885 would apply.  so I think ya done good.

As an aside, attached is a pic of one of the Red Mountain tensioning couplings, and a view of one of the bolsters.
