Ok, you said "there's the distant signal with a yellow arm" I have to see (have you got a screenshot ?). For the AWS have we enough time to stop if we have to before reaching the signal ? I see the AWS system with the ring when it's clear but I didn't have a red yet ;)

But between 2 speed limitations, have we got something that tells us that the next panel will be for example 25 mph/h ? because if we don't know when we arrive to the signal it's too late to brake and do not exceed speed limit.

Edit : About evaluations. I think that the evaluation and the exceeded target speed (I don't remember how you call this line in this evaluation), should not consider when I break or not. It seems that this line considers the fact that the train has not the target speed when we accelerate or brake, it should not. It should only consider if we have exceeded the line speed whatever when we brake or accelerate. In add, you have already an other line on the evaluation that says if we accelerate or break too much. I can brake at the right time, but not exactly when the game would want me to but it doesn't mean that I don't respect the line speed...I think some adjustments should be done there :)

(sorry for my english).

The first picture shows the AWS magnet that triggers the yellow sunflower light. The second picture shows the distant signal giving an advance warning about the stop signals.  Is this of any help?

Regarding evaluation: yes you may be right. Exceeding the target speed by too much when braking gives you "reckless driving" penalty points. The same doesn't happen with acceleration. I can't remember exactly why I did it this way but there was a reason for doing so. It might be that the reason is no longer valid so I will reconsider!

I know for the AWS (I talked about it a little in my video) but I didn't notice the distant signal thank you for that ! However, my very first question was not about red/green signal but speed limitations.

Normaly, on rails, when you have a speed limitation of 25 for example, a first signal says to you "be carefull there is a speed limitation of 25 in "X" miles" before the limitation is effective. I didn't notice something like this in the game. To be short, for limitations you have to signal, one to says to you that there is limitation soon, and the limitation itself. So if I don't use the helpers to show me where are the limitations, I can't know when and where the next limitation will be or may be I missed something that's why I ask to you. The problem is that you have to break before this limitation and not after, but to brake before we have to know there is a limitation next. Don't know if I am clear :)

For the evaluation yes, you should have penalty when you exceed the speed limit of a route only (for the speed). You can have penalty if you brake too hight (for the comfort of passengers) but it seems that in the game , we have penalties because our speed doesn't match the "expect speed" when breaking, that is bad.

Thank you ;)

Ok I understand, this has been asked before :) In 1960s UK there was only one sign at the start of the speed limit. You have to memorise and know where the limits are by heart. Otherwise you will overspeed because there's no time to reduce speed when you see the sign.

In more modern times a second sign has been added to warn the driver in advance unless the speed reduction is small.

Ok, so it's just impossible to memorise all the routes...and then, I will always have to use the "mini map" to help ^^

Yes, I always use the minimap myself unless it's a route I'm familiar with :)

Hello, I've a question and a small feedback for you.

The question : On a train type (don't remember witch one), on the gear, you have "D". I'm not sure what does it mean ? But it seems to work like an "automatic" gear ?

The feedback : On this particular train (with the "D" on the gear lever), I'm able to make the train move on when the gear is set to "neutral" ("N").

Thank you ;)

Hi Crystal, it's the Class 127. The gear setting in this type doesn't actually matter if the whole train is of the same type although the key assistant will tell you to select D. If there are other types at the rear of the train then you need to shift gears normally. I haven't been able to find a clear description of the operation so it may be modelled incorrectly - I'll need to do some more research.
