    I press Ctrl+R to switch it on, and I can see that it does switch on in the cab, however I do not get the target speed or speed bug. What's going on? I'm doing everything like normal, loco stopped, throttle and AFB handle both at 0. I've used it countless times, and it's worked flawlessly. Restarting the sim hasn't helped either.

    Any help?

    If it matters, this is the BR 185 on the MSB

    That's strange. I tried to reproduce your issue but couldn't find any problems on my end. The AFB works as intended. I also use the CTRL+R shortcut ( I learned that with you, to be honest :D ).

    I cannot understand it. The 185 on the MSB seems to be the only problem. On RRO, there is no issue.

    Ooops, actually that was my mistake. For some reason I tried to reproduce this on the RRO. Later I'll try to look at MSB then.

    I've been driving the 185.2 on MSB today with AFB on. Whilst stationary, the throttle is fully off, brakes on, and the speed set on 0mph. Worked for me!

    Before I sent this post, I thought I'd try again, this time manually flipping the AFB switch whilst stationary, and all levers in the right positions. Worked then too.

    Try to switch on the AFB only on neutral, forward or reverse
