Re: Seeking photos of Royal Brake Regulators



I was up in Seattle last year and took some photos of a reefer (unknown type to me) at the
Snoqualmy(sp?) railroad museum that has a Royal F brake regulator. I posted them in a
folder in the photos section named Royal Brake Regulator but are being approved by the
moderators. There are 4 photos all together. 3 showing up close shots of the device itself
and mounting brackets and one of the reefer. I suppose different railroads mounted them
differently but it seems to be in a fairly standard arrangement.

Best regards,

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for photos of the Royal Brake Regulator as used on some
Santa Fe and Burlington boxcars. The cars in question are ATSF 138700-
139199, class Bx-44, and CBQ 17000-17799, class XM-32b. I think I've
found the patent drawings for the brake regulator, but I'd like some
photos to see how they were installed.
