This image shows the air brake equipment on an unknown tank wagon.

This photograph shows the air brake cylinder and in the background is what I believe is the emergency air reservoir.

The slack adjuster is just barely visible behind the air brake cylinder.

With the railway policeman watching me ever so closely, I could not look at the brake control valve distribution block to verify the air lines and other appliances.

This photograph was taken along side the Jing-Guang mainline as it parallels the Guangzhou freight yard.
