A speed and brake application recorder, the R 1038 tachograph has been designed for records of speed and brake application against a distance base in the critical period immediately preceding any accident or incident in which locomotives or railcars may be involved. A self-erasing recording disc provides, on a large scale, records of speed and brake applications against a distance base of 1,820, 910, or 450 yd. only, all records previous to the selected distance being automatically erased. The disc may be removed to provide evidence and a spare disc fitted without upsetting the calibration in any way.
