English term or phrase: coupled banking
Proszę o pomoc w tłumaczeniu wyrażenia w zdaniu:

"Double heading (2nd position) or banking: the brake unit will allow the use of the locomotive in 2nd position in double heading operation, as well as in coupled banking mode."

"Double heading" to tryb trakcji podwójnej - dwie lokomotywy sprzęgnięte razem na początku pociągu.

Kolejne zdanie to: "In this situation, the release control (refilling of the main brake pipe) will be impossible, but the brake application (drop of pressure in main brake pipe) will remain possible."

Zatem, jaką konfiguracja połączenia dwóch lokomotyw oznacza "coupled banking"?

Dziękuję za wszelkie sugestie i propozycje.

When a train formation includes two locomotives double-heading the service, they are commonly distinguished by the terms pilot engine for the leading locomotive, and train engine for the second locomotive. This should not be confused with the totally different procedure of adding a banking engine to the rear of a train to assist up a hill or away from a heavy start.
