Guidance on the Braking Requirements for Hauling Unbraked Multiple Units in Freight Trains
This document gives guidance on the braking requirements for hauling multiple units in a freight train. This guidance is intended to assist railway undertakings in understanding their responsibilities in relation to the braking and formation requirements for the freight train used to undertake the hauling of multiple units with their brakes isolated. Hauling a multiple unit of up to three vehicles coupled together with their brakes isolated is permitted by GERT8000-TW3 and GORT3056-B. This document provides additional guidance where a multiple unit, consisting of four or more vehicles, is to be moved in its dedicated freight train and that they will not be marshalled into a longer general freight train formation.
