What Are Load Boxes used for ?
We disconnect the main generator or alternator and hook it directly to the load box, basically taking the dynamic braking grids and using them to dissipate the electricity & heat produced when you are testing a locomotive. Exactly what it does during dynamic braking except you are bypassing the electrical system so the locomotive can stay stationary while testing the systems.
