    Im doing my first service Manchester-Leeds Loaded Oil Diesel Engine .. i have got so far down the line and then the train shuddered and came to a halt and I cant get it moving ... never happened before on any other services Ive done .. but when I look at the speed, its fluctuating between 0.1 and 0.3 and its got red lines next to it .. ive tried turning engine off and starting the whole thing up again and its still the same ... any idea or help please ?

    The redlines usually mean wheelslip. Are the brakes released? Cant really tell from the Shot but it looks like they might be not fully released.

    It was raining? The red lines means you have wheelslip, you might stop the train and reapply power notch by notch until the train start moving, after you reach like 3mph (5km/h) you can apply more power always gradually and slowly start building more speed

    Switch your brakes to vacuum goods.

    You can also try turning on the sander for extra traction. Also use the technique Vinnie mentioned with the sanding. Have had to do this on Manchester-Leeds with freight.

    Your brakes are still on if you look at the air pressure. You need to charge the system to release the brakes more.

    As far as i know, and i could be wrong, but i believe the sander doesnt do anything in TSW currently.

    I’ll try it again but there was at least sound and the wheel slip warning went away. Anyone else know if the sander actually functions? At least on the M-L locos?
