    Almost immediately after releasing the fact that, you've spent upwards of 50 minutes on a long service.

    Knowing all too well, saving won't help in majority of cases because it can easily break the AI.

    I hate it on console but the PC version has a restart from checkpoint button, so you resume from the previous station. Unlike saving, this function actually works :)

    Once ran a Dante to Elkhorn City service on Clinchfield and at the end, after about two hours, inched passed a small red sign which was hidden by the stop marker...

    Haven't touched the route since.

    I blame the “Go Via” for my red light at the end of a 50 minute ish Cornwall mainline stopper class 150

    I figured it would change when I hit the point like other one :( it didn’t

    It's that moment when you know it's going to happen and tense, then remember it's only a game

    Bruh. I ran the Sand Patch Grade all day on ONE SERVICE AND went literally less than an inch past the final signal and failed the whole thing.

    I don’t know why console doesn’t have this function. It’s much needed.

    I had the same thing happen on clinchfield. The dynamic brakes blew the engine on a 3% grade. The emergency did nothing so I had to do a full restart and stop before a red signal.

    Maybe when you SPAD, instead of ending the service, you should complete it with no medal and no AP. Though I’m not sure if that’s better than getting a game over as it results in the same thing (although I think you keep your AP in a SPAD).

    I think you are on the right track instead of ending the run, it should give a complete with no medal and maybe a deduction in points for not stopping before the signal. But at least you would still be able to keep your AP.
