    Hi everyone!
    I have been playing TSW and found myself on WSR services. I have noticed the Class 08 for use right next to the Class 09. I had no knowledge whatsoever that it was added to services on WSR. In anticipation of the Amtrak dlc I find myself excited to drive trains!!

    It wasnt meant to be added to WSR, I believe it was a mistake.

    But thankfully is here to stay!

    It is a pleasure to drive once you have figured out to release the air brakes then switch to vac!

    It sounds like you have not released the brakes!
    The 08 can pull massive amounts of loaded steel wagons.
    You have to set the Air/light loco/vac brake switch to vac and then release.

    Only problem with the 08 on WSR (I realise it's intended to) is that it wants to run 10 mph slower than the track speed limit, throws a paddy when you reach 20 or above
