KNOW ABOUT - How Does the "Emergency Alarm Chain Pull" stops the Train?

The Emergency Alarm Pull Chain system 

For those of us who has traveled in a train, might had have seen a Emergency pull chain.
The chain is used to stop the train ta a time of an Emergency ( or not ? :P ).
Yes most of may know it in a bad way when people carelessly pull the chain in no emergency. 
Most of us though know what Pull chain is been used for but  does not know the exact mechanism of it. 
Here is a brief description of what exactly happens in a Train when you pull the Emergency chain.





In a Typical Indian train the coaches are interconnect by two pipe hoses. The alarm pull chain is in continuity with the Brake pipe (As in the Schematic diagram above) constantly maintained at a specific air pressure i.e 5kg/cm2 .
when ever the chain is been pulled some Air (earlier vacuum drop was used) escapes from from the Passenger Emergency Alarm Valve ( PEAV ) vent.
