each freight loco i use has that problem can that be fixed or no
Do you have all MU and DPU locomotives set up correctly? Are you waiting for the brake pipe to recharge and release the brakes in all the wagons (this can take several minutes on long consists, you need to hold everything on the loco/independent brake)? Are you only applying enough power to get you moving or going straight to Power Level 8? Is it raining? Are you applying sand? What locomotives and wagons make up your consist?
There are many many elements to this question.
well i have trains from great western express(class 166 or 66ews)
cane creek (ac4400w this route has 2 trains and they r both union pacific
clinchfield (the route we r talking about)
the german routes(hard to pronounce) (usually db trains)
penninsula corridor(union pacific)
and ones from west coast railway
NTP and TVL
and coming soon the boston sprinter
and the french route with the TGV duplex train
That doesn't answer any of the points I raised...
u did ask what trains i had and that's what i said
No. "What locomotives and wagons make up your consist?" is not the same as "what DLCs do you own for Train Sim World 2?"
Is it the SD-40?
As ShodanCat said, I asked what locomotive and wagons make up the train that you're having wheel-slip troubles in (if you have insufficient power, or too long a train, or it is fully loaded, or the MUs aren't set up properly etc etc then you can easily have traction issues). It's like you've gone to a mechanic and said "there's a problem with my car", they ask you what gear does it happen in, and you talk about the clothes you were wearing at the time....
computer.wizdj3 at minimum, check the following:
- make sure that the loco is setup properly when your service or scenario loads up. the MU valve (located on the lower left side of the control stand) is set to "lead or dead" and the brakes are cut in
- use the sander as long as you need to get moving
Ensure brakes are set to lead and freight
Ensure train brakes are fully released, these can take 3-5mins to charge up to 90psi (or whatever measurement is)
Ensure you’ve enabled power on the locos ,not sure what it is on ps5 but it’s the switch that you enable it disables train and dynamic brake with (B,1,2,3,4). It’s the “<“ and “>” keys on pc.
Set power to notch 3 and leave it there, release loco brake and you’ll eventually creep forward.
Some of the clinchfield trains take some throttle patience, they’re a 4000tonne train. As you get up to 4-5mph you can then go to notch 4 etc. If you go too quick your ampere meter jumps into orange, you spin and have to start again.
The above takes yet more finesse and skill in snow or rain
