    Hello there!

    In the powering America part 1 scenario you are told to bail-off the brakes to release them. As far as I know, the bail-off position of the independent brake is used to clear the loco brake cylinders so that they can be released even if the rest of the train is still braking (please do correct me if I'm wrong).
    Could someone tell me why I should bail-off the loco brakes then if I'm releasing all brakes anyhow? What's the point? I feel like I'm missing something important here.

    Cheers
