    I have trouble with the braking in the BR363. If you release the brakes often the brakes seem to be not totally off. The speed is reduced once the power handle is off and also wagons make a lot of noice. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    Yes. With the main Brake Handle, to release the brakes, you must put the brake handle into DRIVE and not into release because this can increase the brake pressure to 6Bar which means that it can damage the braking system due the Brake Pressure being at 5Bar.
    This is a very nice feature which is added to the 363.
