    Fantastic to see. Will there be a Service Mode timetable pdf released any time soon? :)

    Good work DTG. Every DLC gets better!

    There are plenty of successful aspects in simulation that I don't comment here. However here are few missing factors that should be considered implemented for even better simulation::

    No wheelslip in any condition.
    I set the weather to super wet and started the freight train in uphill situation with full power. The train started like a rocket. I expect this kind of behaviour:


    No neutral sections.
    The locomotives have main breaker switch modelled, yet there is no use for it as neutral sections are not modelled. A heavy freight train can cause a massive frequency drop in AC line and this can cause electrical disaster in next power supply station. The neutral sections are used to keep different AC supply grids from mixing with each other. Prototypically driving the locomotive should go over the neutral section with either pantograph down or main breaker switch opened. If electric locomotive stops on these sections it won't get anywhere.

    No brake delay selection on freight wagons.
    A yellow lever(that is already 3d modelled to wagons) is used in real life to select how fast the actuating valve is responding to a pressure drop in a brake pipe. As the pressure drop moves only at the speed of sound, this can lead to full brakes in front part of the train while the end of the train is still missing any brake power. This can lead to coupler jerks and other nasty things such as derailments. With simugraph this kind of delay switch should be quite easy to implement.

    Oui je connais celui-là. Mais il n'y a pas celui de Ruhr Sieg Nord, et surtout le PZB.

    je m'étais trompé, entre temps j'ai mis le bon en lien (mode PZB pages 20 et + ).

    Not announced yet. DTG will probably announce the next route in a few weeks (next month most likely).

    The page that lists all of the services for a given engine also shows their start times, starting point (but not very precisely), and the session's objective. Will that help?
