Question- Why loco pilot sometimes release the pressure manually from the compressor generating air pressure for braking?
Answer- The compressor generates air pressure by using the surrounding air. Air is forced inside the gas cylinder by the compressor. During rainy season when surrounding air has increased moisture content, the compressor also forces some water(moisture) inside the cylinder. This kind of air containing water may reduce the efficiency of the braking system of the train.
So, the Locopilot manually releases the pressure, regularly so that the water filled inside is removed.

➡️Why is elevation from the sea level written at the railway station ?
➡️Basically, it is intended for loco drivers, guards and railway engineers as it tells the gradient(slope) between two stations.
It comes to help while laying down the tracks and even if the train is moving from higher level to lower level or vice versa , then loco driver knows how much speed has to be maintained .Another application is that it is also used for telecommunication to know the coverage area of radio station but it does not come into play nowadays as we have GPS system.
