    The message we know and love - while coupling.

    and don't forget uncoupling. It is there too !

    I happen to be learning to operate the F7 on Clinchfield at the moment. But I suspect this is...

    thanks,
    cool website.
    So yeah, Clinchfield has many of us newbies thinking about things obscured by Sand Patch's "newer" locos.

    Not to mention 3+ degree grades.......

    Interesting.
    Now I am curious about, as you said "At some speed..." and wondering whether each throttle position has a speed threshold at which a "transition" is initiated.
    If so, that may shed...

    Hi, interesting. mind if I ask - did you arrive at the co-joined marker/signal as part of a scenario? When you say "end of the line," which end? (shaw, rockwood, cumberland, other?)

    Also interesting, but seems to complicate matters.
    It appears there is a remote control function other than Dynamic Braking, "...when it is necessary to control transition.."

    Interesting. Thank you.

    Hi, I'm primarily hoping to grab the attention of our resident SD40 expert(s).

    To Blow, or not to Blow- that is the question

    The blowing of one's horn and the ringing of one's bell- when, where, why, etc. cannot be easily answered.
    The best answer I can muster is: it depends.
    The parameters are not complex, but they...
  10. Hey TSW2 developers: "Fully Fueled" is full(y) of bull(y)

    I claim, in the Sand Patch Fully Fueled service scenario, if one does as the instructions specify, you will never get that train up that grade. In fact, you will be lucky if you get the train to 20...
