    i Guys, Am new to this sim and would like to ask if there is a manual of some description that can help in any way in explaining the sim? For example in the Scenario Selection what do the coloured sections mean some are orange some are some yellow etc? On another section the MAP is there a guide on how you use this to change points and what the colours all mean on the lines etc because I only found how to use on YouTube. I did find a link for the various train but nothing on the screen you get

    These colored sections show the difficulty of the scenarios. More bars mean that the scenario is harder. You can't interact with the map. It just shows where the scenario/service is located on the route.

    I really don't know why they can't include proper manuals on the main screen of each route/loco. It's quite a complex sim after all and I expect many on consoles don't know where to access the external manuals.

    Anyway here's couple of links that might help.
    There's some of the route and loco manuals over here.

    And this
    is great for viewing the timetables of each route.

    Both are updated regularly.

    As for a manual for the actual game itself (UI, menus etc) I'm not sure.
    A tip, you can change points while using the free camera. It's sometimes easier than using the map and save you having to walk around.

    Hi Guys, Many thanks PjM for links, just one small note the West Somerset Railway Driver's Manual comes up with Ruhr-Sieg Nord Driver's Manual

    Oh so it does.
    Here's the proper manual.

    Perhaps xD 2Bad4You might look into that? ;)

    Just contacted DTG and asked them to sort manuals out. Their PS4 quick start guide is actually for the XBOX
