Engine Brakes

Post  RIGFindlay on Fri 04 Dec 2015, 8:42 pm

Various locomotives have various lines in their eng files about engine brakes and train brakes such as:

   TrainBrakesControllerMaxReleaseRate ( 2 )
   TrainBrakesControllerMinSystemPressure ( 0 )
   TrainBrakesControllerMaxSystemPressure ( 21 )

   EngineBrakesControllerHasProportionalBrake ( 1 )
   EngineBrakesProportionalBrakeLag ( 0.9 )

   BrakesEngineBrakeType ( "Vacuum_single_pipe"  )
   BrakesTrainBrakeType ( "Vacuum_single_pipe" )
   BrakesEngineControllers( "Hand, Train" )

The train brakes work well but, though loco brakes are provided for by the [ and ] brackets, I have not come across a locomotive where the loco brake works.

Any ideas?

Hi Roderic,
Try the default Class 50 - it has a working locomotive brake; I'm sure there are many more Smile

Cheers,
Ged

Hi Ged,

Yes, I see, and there are a lot more lines in the eng file.
I shall try to equip some of my steam locomotives.

Thanks a lot,

Roderic

According to Richter's "Manual for .eng- and .wag-files of the MS Train Simulator 1.0" the Engine Brake only works with the BrakesEngineBrakeType defined as ( "air_single_pipe"  ). For a copy of this document see HERE - in the Model Construction And Design - General (15 tutorials) section!

Alec, thank you so much. Of course I should have looked there in the first place. What a thickhead!

I wouldn't worry about it as we all have our "senior" moments!
