    I would share my tips, but can't when since the update to which I upgraded to the digital deluxe edition which I paid alot of money for, always wants to crash on me, especially when I want to play the NEC: NEW YORK route. Always crashes on the load up page .

    Read the various signalling and sign guides that various people have made available on these forums. Its necessary to know what each mean, and the signage tells you what is coming next regarding speed limits etc. Then turn the HUD off and learn the route a bit. Much more challenging, much more fun, and you wont be driving the HUD, you'll be looking out the window, as you should be doing..

    This is helpful for new members, but it’s not enough. I agree with Sunscreen that they should look at the signaling guides to help further their understandings.

    My top tip would be if you see a double yellow signal (in England) then start to slow down because usualy the pattern is double yellow, yellow ,red. Also if you know how to turn on (unisolate) DSD and AWS (in britain) Alerter in america and Sifa in germany, you should as they are realy helpful alarms that test your reactons and test if you are there. If you are not there and you don't acknowledge them then they will apply emergency brakes.

    Really? Wow, I never figured out that first yellow then red system. Signals... the more you know. I always thought those were steampunk era christmas trees. Mind blown.

    Also, driving without active safety systems isn't even legal in reality. They're not a "reaction test".

    Semi-related:
    But, see? That's the kind of post I had in mind with that Carlin quote. "Pro tip: Mind the signals." Seriously...

    As a rule with only a few exceptions. If your train brake/drivers brake is on or not released. You wont be able to add throttle.
    The coach/carriage doors also apply a degree of train brake.
