Thread: How coupling works in Open Rails

  1. #21

    Default

    Hi everyone

    I'm new to Openrails. I could not get 2 newly coupled cars to close the bleeder. The program also did not recognize that I picked up the cars. I could open and close the bleeders on the previous 3 cars I picked up but not the newest 2. Niagara Corridor activity CN393. Meantime I'll try it again tomorrow.

    There is a keyboard command (U for the North American keyboard) that allows uncoupling with the mouse. How exactly does this work? It doesn't do anything that I can see and I can't find it documented in the manual.
    thanks

    It works in an outside view. Press and hold U then mouse click on the coupler. It has however usurped the normal MSTS key for applying steam heating.

If the throttle is in a power position, or the train speed is NOT ZERO, then the quick charging key combination will not work.
    Or like in real life release all the air of the auxiliary reservoir, in which I agree with Derek, in my opinion that is a function I really miss in the new braking system in open rails. I am a volunteer switcher at a local musseum line and releasing air from the auxiliary reservoir is such a big part of it, some engines we have don't use air brakes, so when we remove our Pullman from the train we need to release all the air from the auxiliary reservoir otherwise we can't move an inch. By the way at my museum line it is ussual the engineer is alone on the train (to few people) so in that case he must release the hand brakes/remove the shoes. Couple up himself and even throw the switches himself. So I don't find it to far fetched, though I admit there should be an "Automatic coupling" option for those who only want to work like the engineer on an actual railroad with enough employees.

    You can in fact do all of those things in Open Rails. A study of the manual will help tremendously in this.
