Locomotive will move a short distance, pause briefly and then return to its original position with uncoupling sounds. Active brake application (when moving) / Brake dump (when stationary). Activate Braking for more direct control over deceleration as it reduces the stopping distance by 80% and also reduces the top speed of the locomotive by 1/3 if left activated.
If you feel that the locomotive is taking to long to stop, the stopping time is controlled by CV 179. When the locomotive becomes stationary, you can activate brake "Dump", which is waste gases released from the braking system.Parking Mode can be activated by activating F5 and switching off the Headlights (F1), this will activate the red lamps at either end of the locomotive, giving the impression that the locomotive has been stabled, with Paired Mode, the Parking Mode is applied to each end of the entire train, displaying reds at both ends.

It will also significantly increase the stopping distances of the locomotive, when compared to Light Engine. Referred to as "Optional" and "Primary" load by ESU.
