Common Issues

Why won't the train move?

  • The DRA switch is active - The DRA (Drivers Reminder Appliance) is active when the red light is shown and will prevent any application of power. Press the switch again to extinguish the light before applying power again.
  • The cab hasn't been set up - Check the Master Key, Reverser, and follow the quick start guide in the manual.
  • The doors are unlocked - Check the HUD to see if the doors are open and use the manual to identify the Door Close button.

How do I toggle the passenger lighting in the Class 323?

Use the Lights On/Lights Off buttons on the panel to the top left of the driver's seat.
