Hi Art,
You tap the "Y" key to lower the scoop, then tap it again to raise it!

If you have the F5 display on your screen, it shows you whether the scoop is up or down. Be careful not to lower the scoop before you get to the troughs, and to raise it before you get to the end of the troughs, otherwise you'll end up with a broken scoop (also shown on the F5 display!).

Cheers,
Ged

No, but it will not be able to pick up any more water.

Hi Art,
Bad luck, mate!
I think we've all done that Smile 
It's best to make sure to raise it well before the loco gets to the end of the troughs. If you're running the Garratt, don't forget that the water tender is at the front.

Cheers,
Ged
