Driving HS_8585_expert


Wellcome to the HS_8585_expert steam  locomotive, which represents one of the  trains introduced by Prussia  at the beginning of the 1907 and designed for short distance services on secondary routes.The model has been developed exclusively for BVE4, with high resolution cab graphics,  using  the OS_Ats1.dll plug-in by Oskari Saarekas. 

Some key to controls are animated.


Preparing to start


  1. Move the reverser from NEUTRAL to FORWARDS position [up-arrow]

  2. Wait for doors to close

  3. Release brakes fully  [,] (3 positions animated hundle and pressure-gauge)

  4. Set cutoff to 75% forwards [Page UP] , or set automatic cutoff on [Home]

  5. Apply STEAM POWER HANDLE  [Z] (6 positions animated hundle and power indicator)




In addition to reverser keys [up-arrow] [down-arrow]  and regulator keys [Z] [A], the driver has to adjust the cutoff [Page UP]/[Page Down] to get the locomotive move efficiently and quickly, at the same time trying to conserve steam to keep sufficient boiler pressure. You must begin to slowly decrease the cutoff [Page Down] as the speed increases, to maintain acceleration.




If boiler water level seems to be getting too low, set injector on [END]. If there's a fair amount of water in the boiler, and boiler pressure is getting low, make sure injector is off [END]. You can't operate manual cutoff and injector if automatic cutoff is on. Injector has to be regularly used to move water from the tanks or tender to the boiler. Water in the boiler turns slowly into steam and pressure, but the injector feeding water also requires steam to operate.


The timetable


When the panel is first displayed, the timetable  is visible in the upper  left part of the screen.  It can be hidden and redisplayed by pressing the [F3] key.  To zoom in on the timetable, press and hold [F4].

Viewing cab


By default the upper part of the cab is visible and this should be appropriate for normal driving. To see other part of the panel use the keys [8↑;4←;5;6→;2↓;0;.] on the numeric keypad.




The 8585 simulation has 'Tree Position  brake handle':

  • brake handle at left = release pressure;

  • frontal brake handle= hold same pressure;

  • brake handle at right = increase pressure

Starting from central brake handle position:

  •  a quick course of [.]-[,] keys  applies a proportional increasing amount of air pressure to the brake cylinders.

  •  a quick course of [,]-[.] keys  applies a proportional decreasing amount of air pressure to the brake cylinders

 You can see your brake cylinder pressure on the black hand needle of the  brake pressure gauge. The red hand needle gauges the break circuit pressure.
