3. That is how air brakes work on trucks...

I do not know if they are different on trains, but I have read commentary on another thread that says it is the opposite, and that pressure needs to be maintained, meaning that they are more like hydraulic brakes on cars.

Don't know, though. But it seems to fly in the face of 'common sense' to be that way.
