    This sucks, I spent so much time working my way up the mountain averaging 10mph. I got within 5 miles from Summit and looked away for one second and when I looked back I had wheel slip and couldn't apply sand in time to stop the stall. Nothing in my power will get this train moving again. I was running sand on the lead truck most of the way up to address the slip, but didn't get full sand in time.
    I wonder if the 2 trailing units can be setup for distributed power before leaving the yard, but I don't know how to do that yet.
    Disappointing, but lesson-learned... Don't look away.

    Yep the bit they always forget banking com on in lead loco otherwise doesnt work. Way to check this is have outside camera positioned by the window of the rear lead loco and when you throttle up in the front lead the level should move in the rear lead
