Slipping and anti-slip brake button


TrainEngineer

Recommended Posts

This is great, but with a tiny bug:

With the EP07 it is possible to slip in the simulation. and it sounds awesome and the ampere meter shows it somehow too. Though the speedometer does NOT show a sudden speed increase. In reality the Hasler speedometer is connected mechanically to one axle. Normally the front axle? The front axle, or even the front bogie tends to slip easily with wet weather, especially on busy level crossings (dirt from the cars on the road), and especially if you use shunting. (remember, a higher rotation, is less current is weaker field, traction engine wants to go faster...)

Note that the anti-slip brake in the sim doesn't have any effect. It adds the air to the brake cylinder, but doesn't stop the slip. Normally the slip would stop, when the anti-slip brake is applied.

So, sofar job well done. Make sure the speedometer (Hasler) also shows a speed increase. It's a great indicator that you're powering too much in a slippery situation...

 

(all based on 37 years experience driving... :-))

Does slipping control lights up? All axles are simulated independently so it's possible that it occures on one of not connected to hasler/slip control.

Yes it does light up indeed. Normally, one would attach the speedometer to the first axle, and it would be the first axle to slip first. (normally the front axle of each bogie. Hence the "alarm" goes off, if a different current (voltage) is measured between two axles, as it would be the marker for "slip". (if one engine slips, current goes down. If in shunting, speed can go pretty high)
Not sure about the EP07, but I would expect also to have the speedo physically connected per cab to the front axle, as to show slipping to the driver via the speedo (and register it..)
