Adding realism to operations

We all have had those days where nothing went right. Railroads are no different. The presenters have found a way to make operating sessions a little more realistic. As an example, when a car becomes uncoupled, instead of grabbing the cars and recoupling manually, take the time to contact dispatch, and back up to get it right. The dispatcher can put a speed restriction on further traffic until the problem is rectified.  There are many other situations that can be added that create challenges for operators, adding more fun, and realism to your sessions.
