How to drive my electric trains.

Hello everyone,

I have received a couple of questions regarding the electric trains – they were all related to making these trains actually move. Here’s how to do it then. 🙂

The five basic controls you will need are highlighted in the picture above. Note that for the train to move the door needs to be closed. The door closes automatically, but you can control it through F5 (left door) and F6 (right door).

Making the train move:
Step 1 – Press “4” to raise the pantograph
Step 2 – Press “9” to turn the main breaker on.
Step 3 – Press “,” a couple of times to release brake pressure.
Step 4 – Press “F” to set the reverser for forwards movement.
Step 5 – Press “Z” to apply throttle.
