Thread: Braking Problems

  1. #1

    Default Braking Problems

    Hello,

    I am having a hard time with some engines(many)that i always have to "initialize" brakes after normal braking(not stop). Let's say i want to slow down and use the brakes to do so, the brakes than get "stuck" on until i "initialize" brakes. This is a little bit annoying and i was wondering if there is a workaround?

    You would need to detail the rolling stock that you are using?
    The brake settings that you are using?
    Do you understand westinghouse brakes?
    Cheers

    Joe Realmuto's doc should be in your library...start following his guidelines and adjust to suit from there.
