Thread: Train won't move?

  1. #1

    Question Train won't move?

    I recently started encountering a problem with the BLLW K4 on the Strasburg RR route, while using coaches from the SRR coach packs 1 and 2. If I stop at certain places, I can't get the train to move again. I even pull the regulator to 100% and it won't do anything. and no, it's not on any grade of ANY kind, and yes, all brakes are off, including hand brakes. It just won't move at all! I notice then if I uncouple from the cars the engine can move, but not as fast as it could. Then when I couple up again, it won't move. What is this??

    Open the eng and wag files and see if they are the same it might be the loco is vacumm and the coaches air,if they are different you will either have to change the eng or wag file so as they both match.

    What have you done to try to diagnose the problem so far?

    Have you tried that same consist on a different Route?
    Have your tried changing the engines, and using the same cars?
    Have you tried the same engine, with different cars?

    You indicate that you "recently started encountering" these issues; What did you change about your MSTS (or Computer updates) between when you didn't see it, and now that you do?

    What version of MSTS are you using? 1.0? 1.2? BIN?

    I ran into such problems on the Strasburg Railroad when I ran around the train at East Strasburg, coupled on the front coupler, then tried to move. I'd inch along if I was lucky, MSTS 1.2/1.4 patch helped, and BIN Entirely fixed it.

    I'm using BIN. But which version of BIN should I have? The stable release or the work release?

    I use the work release and I have few/no complaints about it.
