    No it’s not another London commuter PS5 crash report/moan, Well not entirely.

    sitting comfortably.. :D

    1st Question of the day : Game or carbon based error?

    just got ejected from the cab and floated beneath the track for some time. Looked like a combination of what I imagine limbo to be like and eastenders intro but in reverse.

    how did I get ejected? While I was physically driving the train I wasn’t actually sitting down. Did a shift and zoom on the controls and found myself zooming back through the passenger area of the 377 rolling at around 50mph before the flying sensation mentioned above.

    At haywards Heath near the end of this service there is a prompt to uncouple. I left the cab and went to the front of the back four and hit the uncouple button…Pssssshhhhttttt wait 5 seconds and then told to move the front 4 forward a few yards and unlock the doors again. Upon trying to enter the main cab at the front I get the “abandon service, are you sure” message. Thought try my luck to finish the service standing up. This as you now know lead to failure.

    The service in question was 1H92
    Part of chapter 6 : bag of allsorts.
    Which happens to be the last chapter timetable I need to complete. Not in a hurry to try again.

    2nd and final question : how should I have gone about the uncouple process?
    Hit uncouple from the main cab of the front four? My assumption was to press the couple button where the train is actually coupled. Maybe I’ll try again using the rear cab of the front four, possibly why it picked up I left the train.

    made it this far? Well done. Feel free to give this service and try and let me know if you managed to complete it :o

    Im a newish player to train sim world 2 but managed to complete a bag of all sorts journey little while ago.

    After getting to haywards heath, I wasn't entirely sure what to do so ended up faffing for a bit! In the end I believe I shut down the front cab, the one your in when arriving at haywards heath, then going right to the back cab, start it up master key on etc, then un couple. It will say to abandon service but you select yes (it doesn't end the chapter)

    All your doing is taking over the littlehampton service which goes as far as Preston park in the game. In real life 4 carriages goes to Eastbourne and the 4 your now in go to littlehampton.

    After uncoupling and saying yes to abandon service it will let you move a few yards, then unlock doors and load, then one more stop to Preston park. I was about 6 mins late by this point after figuring it out! Hope this helps, not sure about floating beneath the track though, im on ps5 console

    seymourgoals gosh!! Interesting, so you do accept abandon service and carry on? I thought doing this would literally does what it says on the tin and the service wouldn’t count as completed. Shall have another go later :)

    When the abandon message came up, I thought the same that it would quit out and was hesitant, but realised after a few mins you don't have any other option and it simply puts you in charge of that littlehampton service and keeps your scehdule of the chapter complete in the pause menu with one stop left to go for Preston park.

    When uncoupling, enter the rear cab of the front portion of the train, and without sitting down press the uncouple button and then return to the front cab. You should be able to sit back down in your driver’s seat without ending the service. That’s how it works in timetable mode and I have driven many of the services that require this procedure.

    For the first question, there are invisible walls at two of the bridges before the tunnel and these will stop on-foot passengers in their tracks and also glitch external cameras to underneath the tracks, so it was probably one of those that caught you while you were standing up in the train.

    Thank you stujoy for the confirmation. Why I didn’t think to stay in the front four to uncouple is beyond me. The rest was just silly as normally I never chance it like this and drive standing up :D

    been under the ground before but fixed external cam. I wonder how long I could have stayed floating? Had to quit as I couldn’t stand the thought of leaving a runaway train speeding south with no driver :o

    Too risky: one of those tree branches that pass right through the cab could knock you down. :cool:

    It's easy, don't get out of the train. Better yet, don't even get up. press L3 and go with the outside camera, you can use the camera to couple trains, change tracks etc... you don't need to get out of the train.

    the external camera method doesn’t work on this loco/train… this is my preferred method as doesn’t involve lots of walking. Wow that sounds lazy but yeah not an option on here.

    Es fácil, no te bajes del tren. Mejor aún, ni te levantes. presiona L3 y ve con la cámara exterior, puedes usar la cámara para acoplar trenes, cambiar vías, etc... no necesitas bajarte del tren.
    Is true, soumds lady, but in sand patch are certanli rutes were you have to walk 900 yards. So, it's onli a way to make it mor fun, (onli mi opinión he).

    I purchased Sherman hill last Thursday or Friday, and I am so pleased that I did. I have been enjoying this route a lot more than I thought I would. Thought I would have a problem moving or stopping my first drive on a service with 100 freight cars and 1.6 miles long. But I managed both, much to my surprise and got a Gold for it.

    Have done several others since including several shunting services and have enjoyed everyone. £16.24 very well spent for me.

    Third attempt and finally got it. Phew.

    highlights : seeing the HST and 66 along the way along with some good parallel running leaving Victoria.

    Points of groan : why couldn’t the uncouple button have a tiny marker, yeah it should be obvious but some loose cannons out there need a tiny pointer.

    Low points : game crash, while lucky enough to say I can count the crash’s while running London commuter on one hand… it’s been raining pretty much every time. Also external camera being moved I recall.

    the over sensitive tunnel is 4.3miles north of Preston park. Pretty sure that’s where I got the boot while standing.

    oh and screenshot so I can finally move on….
    To the 313 timetable :D
