    I've been running some timetable activities in East Coast Main, driving the Class 66 EWS. Although these involve hauling or shunting freight, the pass - frt indicators in the cab are set to passenger when the activity opens.

    I've checked the manuals, but (surprise, surprise) they do not provide any information and the in-cab instructions are equally mute about this subject.

    So, how is this done? (Yes, I want to know, even though it seems to make no difference as far as completing the activity goes.)

    I remember Matt showing how to change that but I haven't had the time to look back.

    So I just rewatched the twitch and stream and saw Matt show how to change from Passenger to Goods. On the Computer above the window select brake timing and within there you can select between Passenger and Goods.

    If i recall correctly one of the privy folks mentioned it makes nare a difference.

    I personally refer to the manual as a last resort .
    Have a look around, remember there are panels on the back wall. For me, if im physically testing things i remember them. Im more of a 'sinks in if i do rather than read'. But again, that's just me \o/

    Try that if all else fails

    Wasn't that the first thing to do in the EWS Class 66 Tutorial? Changing stuff on the "heads up" computer - I remember it was easy (for me) because the LCD text is German

    Yes, but you change the Brake Cut In / Cut Out, not the timings.

    Your memory is not on the ball: the tutorial mentions manipulating brake settings, not passenger/freight modes. But thanks for playing, anyway.
