    Hi,

    No doubt a silly question but does this route have a working AWS system? I'm guessing no? I was running some services/scenarios with the Class 52 On the WSR and noticed there wasn't any AWS alerts. It was switched on in the cab (handle next to the driver's seat) but nothing. Are the yellow thin markers along this route for AWS? I saw a few of them

    Thanks

    Yes. You need to both change the AWS Isolation Lever to unisolated and the AWS Cab Changeover Lever to on.

    Thank you for the reply. Just another quick question. The manual for the Class 52 mentions how to activate the AWS - under the drivers seat move the AWS isolation lever to Unisolated and move the AWS cab changeover lever to on. I can only locate the first one. Am I missing something? There's no AWS self-test.

    The cab changeover lever should be on the back wall.
