As I hadn't looked at Sandpatch yet, thought I would try a quick timetable run see how the route and trains have improved over V1. Unfortunately it seems (to me) the love has passed this one by. I decided to attempt a run with 2 x SD40 hauling an intermodal ~4000 tonnes, should have walked away with that. It needed Notch 6 just to get the train moving on a level grade and Notch 7 or 8 to keep it rolling at 15 MPH. When I shut off power for the 15 MPH as you exit the yard it felt like I was rolling through treacle - no inertia at all. The train and loco brakes all released (I triple checked) and nothing else out of place. A shame, as thus far my experience of the updated physics, even on the preserved items carried over, has been generally favourable. So unless I'm doing something wrong (and feel free to tell me), and patch remains the Achilles Heel. I can only hope they sort out the US diesel and rolling train physics in time for Cane Creek.
