    The Clinchfield Railroad route is a nice route, but I encountered a problem with the SD40 and GP38. The brakes are horrible, even with such a short consist. The Independent Brakes on the SD40 don't even work. The Train Brakes take forever to respond. Because of this, you almost can't slow down for a speed limit in time. The brakes on the SD40 and GP38 need to be fixed.

    Haven't the brakes always been garbage on the EMD hood units?

    Swap the Clinchfield SD40 or GP38 with one from another route
    If the brakes on those work ok then it is a problem with the Clinchfield locos

    Raise a ticket with DTG if that is the case

    They are not scripted well. Also, there should not be any ditch lights on this. There are no ditch light lamps on the loco but it has flashing flares. Check the pressure gauges as well they do not seem to be correct. Almost sounds like this was an afterthought because there are no scenarios included

    The GP 38 might be the second loco in a Consist that has the SD40 leading.

    Negative, all 3 locos in the SD40 scenarios are SD40s
