Is there any way to solve this problem?
Which Route are you on about?
its says rise and shine= ruhr sieg nord
I had to check thats all as i havent played this route as yet
Have you tried all of the following steps?
GO TO LOCATION: Head into the yard and to the train
GO TO THE LOCOMOTIVE: Climb aboard. Set the Battery to START and Pantograph to REAR
SIT IN SEAT: Set the Reverser to REVERSE
CHARGE BRAKES: Wait for the Main Reservoir to reach 6.0 BAR pressure
START UP LOCOMOTIVE: Set the Pantograph to RAISED and the MCB to CLOSED
BRAKE HANDLE TEST: Set the Driver's Brake to FULL SERVICE
BRAKE HANDLE TEST: Set the Driver's Brake to RELEASE
REVERSER: Set the Reverser back to NEUTRAL
BRAKE HANDLE TEST: Set the Driver's Brake to OFF
LIGHTS: Set the Headlights to TAIL LIGHTS
HANDBRAKE: Release the Handbrake
CHANGE ENDS: Climb down and head to the Cab Car
ENTER CAB: Climb aboard, close any doors and set the Battery to ON
LIGHTS: Set the Signal Lights to HEADLIGHTS
SIT IN SEAT: Activate the Brake Key and set the Reverser to FORWARD
BRAKE HANDLE TEST: Set the Train Brake to FULL SERVICE
BRAKE HANDLE TEST: Set the Train Brake to RELEASE
PANTOGRAPH: Set the Pantograph to RAISED and the MCB to CLOSED
STOP AT LOCATION: Finnentrop
BOARDING: Open the doors on the LEFT side
DISEMBARK: Climb down from the train to complete this duty
I had this problem. The issue is the way the train works if you put the breaks to release for more than a fraction of a second it discharges and then you have to wait for them to charge again I think (Someone else may be able to describe this better).
Anyway - to drive the trains in RSN just never take the breaks to release, put them to running only when you want to take them off an all will be fine.
Hope this helps.....
Having the same issue, followed all directions and the train won't budge upon pushing the throttle.
Helped me immensely! Thank you.
I’ve only just started RSN.. enjoying the trains and timetable.
scenario wise. The 10 minute rise and shine takes me 30 minutes and the train is still in deep REM
following the steps as always and made a note of the running never release as above. Still got a non starter. Anyone still getting this? Grateful of any help (on the PS4)
I ran this scenario successfully on my PC some time ago (probably not long after the route first became available). Your OP led me to try it again and -- no go: I had the same experience as you. I carefully followed all of the instructions and wound up with an engine that would not move. Normally, I'd suggest that you contact support, but it now seems that DTG will no longer provide that service for TSW. Given this abrupt shutdown of a "service" that seldom provided much real support, I feel like someone who has just received notice that the 5-year warranty on his car has been terminated with several years still to run. So it goes!
There are videos on YouTube that explain what is going wrong, how to avoid things going wrong and what to do to fix them. This is the best example:
Solution: PRESS THE “BRAKE OVERCHARGE” BUTTON, which is next to the Brake Key in the cab.
tldr; Hawk Eyye is correct that the problem is caused by hitting release when setting up the locomotive, but since the instructions actually tell you to do it, I image almost everyone will have this problem and would rather use the overcharge option instead of restarting.
As I understand it the Release feature actually overcharges the system to free up stuck brakes and shouldn’t be used normally. This means that any braking that is applied is done so at the higher pressure, which is why overcharging them again is necessary to release them. The system will equalize itself after several minutes of normal operation, but if you have to apply the brakes again before this occurs you will need to reach for the overcharge button each time. You can tell if the system is overcharged by looking at the gauge just to the right of the main brake gauge. If it reads above 0 then it’s overcharged and can’t be released normally.
here’s a picture of the gauge in the overcharged state. It reads 1:
