    Hi all,

    Trying to figure out how to get my "helpers" working on the Clinchfield. I got an ABBA set up front and 2 sd40s on the rear.

    I've set up all the brakes and various switches just like I would on SPG but for the life of me can't find any radio or banking comm buttons in either of the locos.

    Service is X3012 South

    Am I missing something???

    I believe this might mean the locos will drive themselves from the rear of the train, they’re just, there, and they’ll throttle up when the computer notices the train going up a grade, kinda how real life helper units operate. Old locos like the SD40 and F7 do not have capabilities of DPU operation like an AC4400CW.

    My work around is to use the external camera.
    Go to the helper loco's and open the window then set up the control stand and then operate the throttle.
    seems to work.

    Well if that was so, then why don't they fire up when I'm trying to get moving out of Elkhorn on the 1.5% grade?
