    Hi All,

    I would like to know more about the BR 101 and how to operate it and learn also about signals.

    Do you have any link to a detailed manual or informations?

    I use the default scenery Ruhr-Sieg at the moment and TS2020.

    Thank you

    The Manual is for the Virtual Railroads version of the DB Class 101 which as a lot more other fitting the default version has
    When the Ruhr-Sieg was installed it would have also put the manual on your computer
    \steamapps\common\railworks\Manuals\EN is where you find it and any other manual that was installed.
    Alternatively this Manual for a different route features the same DB 101 and has pictures of the Signalling system

    And the PTG videos are still helpful -

    It seems PZB acknowledge/release isn´t working on the defalut BR101. Same for AFB control.
    Is it correct? It looks like I cannot even move the handles there. I´m trying the Ruhr-Sieg line.

    Which BR 101 are you talking about. There is a DTG/Steam one and another from Virtual Railroads. Sounds like to me you have the DTG one and from memory, PZB isn't functional on it hence that is why you cannot move the handles.

    When the BR101 was released back in 2012 they did not have PZB on the Ruhr-Sieg route.

    As a test do a Free Roam with the BR101 on that route but don't have the route fully set - leave a crossover the wrong way
    As you approach a Yellow or Red you should hear the warning system sound like the AWS on UK trains.
    Pushing the Q button will cancel the warning
    That will confirm it is the earlier version of the loco
