R160 Brake issue?

Recommended Posts

Earlier today I was on the last (Z) out of Parsons Archer , and the set had to be taken out of service due to one car having is brakes locked(?)

 

The train came into Parsons fine before the T/O took it but

When the T/O first started out the train was jerking back and forth while he was moving and only one car made it out of parsons. He put the train into emergency a few times, but it still wasn't budging. So they tried to bring it back into Parsons but discharged us first. So was it one of the cars in the set having its brakes locked or some other issue?

 

Lead car was 8593

Stuck brake, it happens. To over come the problem, the affected car or truck has to be cut out and the train taken out of service.

 

I see thanks.

Lol I could have sworn to see 8593 on the (Z) today.

Anyways that also happened to me on an R42, only it was a dead motor so the train wouldn't move.
