    Does anyone know if there is a hotkey/button you can press on your controller so you can blow the depot whistle while in the exterior camera

    Don’t think there is, before I think you could press it and external camera fast enough at same time to get it to work, however haven’t been able to do that in while.

    You can use a chat keyboard as addition to your controller, than you‘ll be able to use buttons like „space“ and „n“ to blow the horn, no matter if you’re inside or outside the train. I use one of this and I love it, it is very comfortable, especially when driving with the dynamic weather on SKW with the need to switch the wipers on and off a lot because of the tunnels. But also for funtions like headlights, AFB and of cause SIFA, better than using B button because of the annoying sounds or the call "Zugbeeinflussung" in some trains.

    Press operations shift (hold the X button) and click the left stick for the alternate horn / depot whistle / etc.

    Thanks, but I'm the class 375 when I hold X and click left stick it does low horn and when I don't it does high horn. Is there any way to specify do the whistle only?

    Thanks, that's a great setup. Any idea where I can get one of those keyboards?

    Yeah, especially with TSW in particular, what other games would you play with that besides TSW is all I ask ;)

    I'm not really sure. Bus sim 21, Minecraft, Farming Sim, Fishing Barents Sea. I might try out Halo with it. As you can see, I love simulators. TSW in particular. I guess I'll find out. :)

    To get full use of all the keyboard functions in TSW you need a keyboard with function keys. I use a standard keyboard plugged in to USB (on my PS5) but there are Bluetooth keyboards that are smaller and both options are better than a chat pad type, and probably cheaper too.
