    Hey all,
    Recently started playing TSW2 and i've now ventured onto the USA Sand Patch Grade scenarios.
    I'm having a little trouble with the first Y101 Morning Delivery scenario.
    After hooking up to the 8 freight carts, I'm not able to get the train moving again.
    All I am doing is causing the wheels of the train to spin.

    Having watched various videos on YouTube, I'm not able to see what I am doing wrong.
    The videos that I have seen appear to show the accelerator being slowly ramped up and the train moves off without issue?
    Tried numerous times and have failed so now turning to the forums for help....

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    I had this issue also.. 1 make sure the cars hand brake is complety off and make sure that your brake valve is set to freight, then rev the engine in nuteral in notch 2 or so and wait for the air pressure to raise to 60 psi or so..
    Then you should be able to move :)
    Took me 15 minutes to figure it out lol

    Make sure your brake PSI is on 89 and turn on sand if you wheelslip

    While the cars are sitting there, their brakes are clamped down at full service pressure, because the brake pipe is disconnected and thus vented to atmosphere. After coupling, you have to wait for brake pipe pressure to reach 89 psi before the cars' brakes release.

    Have you set the cut-off valve on the brake stand to Freight?

    You guys are great - I just joined as recently got it on PS4 and couldn't understand why the engine was slippin' and a slidin' like Shakin' Stevens. Had to set the cut-off valve to Freight. Great stuff.
