    I can't seem to get the GP38-2 brakes to release fully everytime I play. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Here are the steps I'm taking to get started after loading up the scenario (Y104 - Car Switching):

    1. Insert Reverser
    2. Turn on Gen Field
    3. Set Cutoff Valve to Freight
    4. Set to Forward
    5. Release Auto Brakes
    6. Set Throttle to notch 1/2/3

    Train starts moving but BC is stuck on 27 no matter what I do. Am I doing something wrong?

    There's a switch to your left close to the floor. It should be on "lead or dead" position.
