On BCOL 4618 a view of the Central Display Unit (CDU) which relays info to and from the Sense Braking Unit (SBU) on the tailend of the train. At the time this image was taken we were stopped at Colebank doing some work at Pinnacle Pellet plant which was a fairly new operation making heating wood pellets for export. We were cutoff from the train and the CDU is displaying a "low pressure alarm", train length dialed in at "9679" feet, "0" air pressure on the rear and the SBU light (marker) is "on" and the rear of the train is "stopped".On the right just below the "comm test" button is the toggle switch for emergency brake application on rear of the train.
