      Does anyone know if an application of electric hydraulic brakes has been attempted on railroad trains anywhere in the world and if so which railroads are using this technology?

      I have something in mind its practicality is hard to determine for me. If there was an existing application (I can not find any evidence there is) I might be able to glean whether my ideas have merit. I haven't seen any patents in a search that indicates Electric Hydraulic braking is actually being used by anyone for railroad service. I have uncovered evidence that there are Highway Trailers that are using it.

      I will further add that after a 100 plus years of continuous use the pneumatic brake is showing its age I can elaborate on this further if desired.
