    Hi all,

    I have quite a curious issue with my HSTs. The Throttle keys A &D do not work and I can only use the throttle with the mouse.

    I have just tried a verification of files on Steam but to no avail.
    Any ideas ?

    Thanks.
    Stephanie

    I had this a few weeks back but switched to the raildriver and that worked fine. Haven't tried a HST since...
    Might try later and submit a ticket etc

    I sometimes get the keyboard lock out of controlling a train, in fact I lose other functionality inc Esc F1 and so on, the only way I seem to get it back (without restarting the game) is to swap ends on the cab a couple of times (Ctrl + - or +)

    You could try that maybe?

    Thankyou both for replying. Managed to fix it by first verifying files and that still did not work, then from Steam uninstalled the UK asset pack and reinstalled it, re-verified the files it seems to have fixed it. I wonder what might have caused this though.

    Dunno, but I would report it anyway given the recent issues they've had with multiple packs

    Did you have one of the AP Class 43 Enhancement Packs installed?

    The class 43 is a very nice model
    Which one in particular were you having problems with?
    I had problems with the IC225 dlc class 43, but that is not technically a hst

    The IC225 is not diesel powered unlike the HST. It is electric with pantograph and is classified as Class 91. It is nothing like the HST.

    The Class 43 is the HST and is also know as the IC 125
    The Class 91 is an Electric and is also know as IC 225
