    Opening the left side cab window causes the train brakes to enable and stops you from going any faster or moving at all if stationary.

    Hi HopesAnchor131 have you got the Droplight Interlock, cut out? As this will not allow the train to move as this is a real safety feature on the Tube Stock.

    I tested again and you are right. Strange for a window? Was unaware of this, thank you.

    The Droplight Interlock is a safety feature from what I understand. If you were to stick your head out the window, you would instantly meet tunnel wall.

    In real life having the window open on the tube can only lead to bad things happening.
