    I'm stuck in a great western scenario, the "west world". I'm supposed to take over a class 43 loco after I get to the specific station. I waited till the passengers were loaded but can't get the train moving. I think it's abaut the brakes. The white and red needles are positioned in the middle of the MR gauge. I relesed the brakes to running, applied throttle over and over. No use. At full throttle it seemed to get to 2 or 3 km/h but something is wrong.

    Then I turned the engine off and on and the MR gauge turned to normal.(I guess) Again still the train doesn't move at all. Need help.

    Okay it turned out I had activated the parking brake accidently while waiting for the passengers. I was mingling the controls to get familiar at that time. Issue solved.

    Reminds me of my first time in Sandpatch. I stopped the train, didn't get it rolling again and on top of that started sliding backwards down the hill. I panicked :)
    Learned a lot about brakes and pressure afterwards ...

    Don't mind, I'm roundabout 8 weeks into this game and learned most stuff just by playing and listening carefully in the locomotive tutorials. Because I gradually removed assistance from the HUD (disabled next-signal indicator and speed limit) and at the same time learned a lot through reading wikipedia articles about signaling ;-)

    For new players, it helped me A LOT, have a look at this wonderful community guide here: https://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/new-versions-tsw-starters-guide-and-tswtools.15398
    This will lead you here: https://www.hollandhiking.nl/trainsimulator/2-uncategorised/3-trainsim-world-downloads

    Take the PDF and just read, I learned everything about "gripping brakes" from there if I remember correctly.
    In my case it was just a "wait until the pressure is gone and the brake opens up again" which caused my panic ;-)

    Thank you, I had read that pdf some time ago, today I checked out the part abaut the brakes again. It's basic but refreshed my memory anyway.

    However I'd like a little more complicated information with the brakes. The main reservoir, pipes, pressure, the red and white needles and stuff. I had found something like that in google but now can't remember where it was. Can somebody please give a link with that kind of information. Also please don't give link to wiki, it's blocked in my country.
