    Mount Shasta

    Good evening all I decided to run Shasta Route tonight. Has anyone had problems with the EURVQ activity? I know the act says it hard, but it seems that the loco brake won't release brakes the main reservoir at brake release reds whit needle reads 90 psi and the red reads 140 and the brake cylinder reads white needle reads 0 and the red needle reads 65 and the amp gage is maxing out with no movement at all. I have tried to notch it all the way up and it still won't move. I'm not getting any bug indications of anything is wrong just will not pull. Any suggestions?

      Try removing the hand brakes.

          Are you referring to first starting off, or when you make the pick up?
          you need to hit the buttons required to put all the air hoses together and send air through the train on the pick up, and the rest of your train.
          You also need to make sure to use the quick keys to release all hand brakes on the lift.

          You can find the quick keys in the F1 help menu inside ORTS itself. Sorry I can't say exactly what they are as I'm not at my computer, and I don't want to give the wrong ones, as I do this by muscle memory..

          This activity ran fine for me as did the many others in ORTS 1.5.1

            @ gates5of1: What ORTS version were you using? I remember I had a problem picking up the helper the first time I tried this activity using an ORTS version older than 1.5. Tried again, this time with ORTS 1.5.1, and the activity worked as intended.

              Thanks everyone for the advice I had to hook up the lines and let the air build back up. those brake cylinder numbers still bother me while waiting on east bound main resv reads white needle 80 red reads about 135 psi brake cylinder reads red 30 needle white reads 80 is that normal?
