    That's correct - you're not supposed to be accelerating/using power when braking, hence why the traction gets blocked.

    That is normal, Peter. :) Either running or stopped, as soon as you apply the minimum train brake application, the traction will be blocked accordingly.

    thx for that so whenever I do move the automatic brake I have to stop no matter what the circumstances, what about if I just want to slow down?

    Not exactly, Peter.
    In short, you just have to have your brakes fully released to be able to use traction. However, in case you apply the train brakes and still have the power handle on the traction position, it will not apply power after releasing the brakes until you move the power handle to idle and apply power again.
    So no - you do not have to stop just so you can apply power again.
    Say you're driving at 60 MPH and you want to reduce your speed quickly down to 45 MPH. You apply the train brakes. At this moment, the traction is blocked. Now lets say the train speed went down to 40MPH and you want to adjust your speed to 45 MPH. Then you must ensure you've released your train brakes and then you can use the power handle again. To avoid any misunderstandings, just be sure you set the power handle to Idle before using the train brakes.
