Steam train faster than tender.
« on: August 24, 2014, 05:03:35 AM »
Apparently the engineers for the Midland 25 Class 4-2-2 made a huge mistake. They designed an engine capable of going 142 km/h just to use a slow tender limiting it to 135 km/h. They made the same mistake with the Midland 1738 Class 4-4-0 as well.

I am not sure if a faster tender is introduced later to accompany these engine but otherwise they will never obtain maximum speed due to the tender limiting them. I am reporting this in case it is a bug (the engines are meant to have a >135 km/h tenders). If a faster tender is introduced later there really has to be some kind of comment somewhere to inform the user of this.

No, this is a bug: thank you for reporting it. I will have to see about fixing this when I am in a position to do so. Apologies for the difficulties.
