    Usually you have to release the handbreak in the 143´s with the big wheel. In the 185´s turn on the battery, release the parking brake and turn the battery back off.
    In your driving loco set it up as normal (checking if the pantograph is up and mcb set to close, reverser to forward, releasing the brakes, setting the lights) and apply power. From that point you should be able to drive it as usual.
