Hello

In the centre of the speedometer on the Dash9s is a digital display showing mph/min. This varies with different throttle settings and changes as the train proceeds etc.

Could you please explain what this means, and any thing related to it.

Thanks in advance

The acceleration rate maybe.

I believe that it means if you keep the engine under the current conditions then that will be the speed in one minute. Like If you are on a huge grade with a heavy train and you are full throttle but still going slow, your MPH/MIN will be very low

Hope this helps

It is the acceleration rate, the higher the number the faster you are accelerating, 0 means you at maintaining exact speed or slowing down.
