    I reached the summit of Sherman Hill and started my decent down the grade. I started applying my dynamic brakes and eventually they weren't enough to keep the train at the speed limit. Keeping my dynamic brakes fully applied, I applied minimum reduction on the automatic brakes to try and contain my speed. However, it seemed the dynamic brakes slowly released when I did this which led me to speed up even more. The same happens when applying the independent brake as well.

    To conclude I don't think the dynamic brakes work at all when the independent and/or automatic brakes are applied. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

    I think you need to bail out the independent brake after setting the automatic brakes.
    You want all the brakes in the locomotives to be released to fully benefit from the dynamic brake.
