Use and Safety Information:

These riding trucks are designed for use by a single average build adult, and are provided with a braking system which is intended only to provide safe braking for the truck and driver. The driving truck and it's braking system should never be used as a substitute for proper locomotive and / or train braking systems.

In any event, the brakes must be applied gently, carefully and progressively with only the minimum effort required to bring the wagon and dirver to a safe stop, and to avoid either, locking the wheels causing  a loss of braking action, or damage to the brake linkage and operating parts. In this respect attention should be drawn to the fact that the brake lever, being longer than, for example, a bicycle handlebar brake lever, requires a lower amount of effort to apply the brakes, and aggressive use could cause damage to, or a malfunction of, the braking system.
