2-17. STOPPING ENGINE (cont)
High voltage is used in the operation of equipment. Do not be misled by the term LOW VOLTAGE.
Potentials as low as 50 volts may cause death.
Remove rings, bracelets, wristwatches, and neck chains before working around the locomotive.
Jewelry can catch on equipment and cause injury, or may short across an electrical circuit and
cause severe burns or electrical shock.
Open battery switch (6) and apply handbrake (7) if the locomotive is to be taken out of service.
Check the engine crankcase oil level. Oil level shall be between ADD and FULL marks on the dipstick
Emergency Stop. Both engines can be shut down external to the cab by positioning EMER SHUTDOWN switch
(8), on either side of the locomotive, to OFF.
2-18. COUPLING TO TRAIN AND PUMPING UP AIR
Closely observe brakeman's signal. Failure to do so may result in death or injury to personnel.
Coupling speed should not exceed 2 mph (3 km/h) or damage to the locomotive and cars may result.
Stop a safe distance from the head car or other unit until it is determined that knuckles are open and couplers are
properly alined. Check that trainline air hoses are in proper position. Advance slowly to couple train.
After coupling to train, stretch coupling to check that couplers are locked.
Couple trainline air hoses and open angle cock slowly.
