    I just hit this very same problem. As soon as I get to the step to couple to 30 wagons I stopped short. Hit the wagons at .5 mph. both by hand and using external camera I couple the wagons and get instant derailment service failure.

    EDIT: This is AFTER I applied the Jan 9th update

    DTG Matt

    So Matt, where are we with this?
    I´ve noticed this thread has been unpinned. Am I suppose to believe that all the efforts to produce videos, screenshots and standard reports (on your request!) have been in vain? That these issues will slowly vanish into cyberspace, that they won´t be fixed in TSW2 where it all started?

    I really, really, from my heart, don´t want to believe this!
    I rarely tag someone from DTG, but this time please tell me if these issues are gonna be addressed or should I get drunk asap?

    • Issue Summary: Instant Derailment
    • Platform: Steam
    • Game Mode: Journey (Diesel Legends of the Great Western, Chapter 1: Put a Gronk on it)
    • Route Name: Great Western Express
    • Loco Name: Class 08 BLU
    • Service/Scenario Name + Start Time: 5X03 Coach Preparation, 03:22
    • Step-by-Step Instructions: Start the scenario. Boom, you're derailed. Might be instant, might be after a couple seconds. One time I managed to fly around the loco in external camera and saw that the buffers were clipping heavily into each other. The loco isn't positioned correctly. So the game tries to correct that and pushes the loco violently out, sending it flying off the track.
    Here's a YouTube video I found, with this problem visible: Except the video is from TSW2, so the loco doesn't derail, but just keeps shaking. You can see the buffers clipping into each other 20 seconds into the video. However, in TSW3 there just isn't time to get out of the cab and do the uncoupling, as the loco derails immediately upon the scenario starting.

    The issue is months old. This scenario is among the first ones reported as having this problem (post #5 of this thread). I think you get my drift.

    The video from post# 5 is from TSW2 as well. And it DOES derail. Actually I´m a bit surprised that the author of this video was able to uncouple without derailing. As soon as I release the brakes it goes boooom. I shall try to uncouple without brake release, maybe it´s a workaround to get this scenario done at least. (Geeez, to what point we´ve got, after paying truckloads of money ... :()

    I don't know if it's the same issue or not, but yesterday I was doing the Dospolok BR 182 tutorial and when I was asked the couple to the Habbins freight cars, the buffers were rock solid.

    I didn't derail or anything, but it was quite bad. No buffer in them at all, they just stopped me on the spot and the loco bounced back.

    Yes, I´ve got this with the BR 363 on RSN to the point that it renders the automatic coupler useless. She´s bouncing like a kangaroo. Video is on post# 18.
    I see DTG brought this ill-conceived patch over to the "new" sim.

    It's on TSW2. I won't up(?)grade until these bugs are squashed.

    PS: I tried 4-5 times until getting it right.

    Given the attitude of the devs, that is, "TSW3 first, then TSW2," you might be waiting a loooong time. I mean, TS2016 still hasn't had its bugs from release fixed.

    I put in a ticket about this issue when coupling to the 30 wagons in SoS, Edgehill Sheds Edgehill yard. I even sent screen captures of the cause, as I show in this post https://forums.dovetailgames.com/th...e-hill-sheds-edge-hill-yards-derailing.62999/

    The response I got back wasn't very promising that it's going to be fixed, They say that just to move the wagons forwards means they need to rewrite the core program?
    Surely if the people that test these routes should have seen that the end wagon is hanging off the track, embedded in a buffer stop, and on closer inspection has no front wheels? Even the route map shows the wagon off the tracks. You can't miss it!
    As I've stated before DTG seem more concerned on how the games looks, than how it plays?

    Hmm! doesn't look like I will be bothering with buying NTP very soon then. As I can't imagine that they will bother fixing it?

    Which would be a pity because it´s a fantastic route for those who appreciate the old BR workhorses. With Diesel Legends and Heavy Freight Pack I know I learnt to love it.

    I rarely do but I´ve tagged Matt P. in post #112 to have a perspective here. Without success though. I get it, I´m prolly not worthy.

    So I looked a bit into the buffers of the Class 45 and 47. It seems they are bugged in general. I hope these observations can help the bug fixing.

    - Clipping with the carriages buffers also occurs for both 45 and 47 before they interact, both uncoupled as well as coupled. This does however not cause derailment. (See screenshots below)
    - The derailments are occur when the Class 47 approaches the Class 45 from one specific side. The buffers go crazy and touching makes the loco jump. The game allows coupling even when not touching, so that is the workaround for now I guess. Decoupling causes derailment as well. From the other side of the 45, or when the 45 approaches the 47 this does not happen.

    Yet another route that I so much wanted to own Full of bugs! I am gutted and very disappointed. It really saddens me :(
    Unless DTG Matt can have a word with the boffins in the dev's department to see if they will fix these issues. If they can't be bothered, then I will give up on DTG products and take my money elsewhere.
    Might be a lot more expensive, but I might switch over to MS Flight Sim? At least they fix their products!

    What´s really annoying is that this route was near to perfect (OK, with aged assets, but else?). What you see above wasn´t there when I got the route.The buffers and couplers were just fine. It was implemented by an amateurish "patch" that was intended to fix derailing and buffer issues on SoS. (Update 1.86 for PS4 players) Instead it messed up the whole sim and waits for a fix on TSW2 ever since.

    I´ll refrain from further comments. There might be underaged kids on this forum.

    I am not sure if this is related to this topic, but recently I have noticed in TSW3 that US buffers keep making clanking sounds constantly even if the train is percetly stopped and has been for quite a while. It just never stops.
    [​IMG]

    Is it related to this 100% hard buffers bug that keeps being menitoned here?

    For the first time since I began playing TSW2 and TSW3, I encountered a very strange thing.
    I was playing a scenario on Oakville route called Equipment Move. I was reversing a tandem of locos to connect to another tandem of locos. We started with 5 locos pulling 10 wagons, and at some point we dropped off one loco. Right after that drop, I was reversing slowly, less than 3mph, waiting for the coupling, and... it didn't couple. My loco moved right through the stationary loco, to the point where there was a significant overlap, and then it bounced off. I used the brakes to slow down, and then coupled manually.
    Unfortunately, I didn't think to save a clip.

    Exact same issue on PS4, current version of the game.

    Edit: Also happens with journey service 1A29.

    Same issue, although I managed to still couple the Loco's by stopping at 4yd distance and executing the couple via the external camera.

    Well they're all on leave now until some time after Easter, at which point no doubt priority will be barking up trade for EML and covering up the likely shortcomings of Peak Forest.

    I've tried 2 times to complete this on PS4. At second attemp i've stopped the class 47 a little more far from the buffers of class 45 and coupled it. This workaround might help you complete scenario, you have just to remember when the buffers start jittering and stopping very little more far before tried to couple

    Ok, so after 2 attempts it worked. I dont know if this was necessary but before ive released the brakes on the Class45. Then slowely moved to the point where the buffers startet to jitter (approx 0,5m distance) but i was able to couple the train and finish the scenario.
