Well I tried 20000 and its still in the same position... :o

Did you reference the cab camera blueprint in your engine blueprint? Have you re-exported the camera blueprint after making the changes? I don't think large numbers make a difference, in fact, you may want to look at smaller numbers to get it working, putting in a huge number like 20000 will probably not be accepted by RW as a valid location, it's way too far away. Try using coordinates from Blender by placing a sphere or something like that in the location you want the camera to be in and take the coordinates from it (that is, if you haven't already done that).

OK found the issue - turned out I had two cab cams, one in the main loco folder, and the other in my Cab View folder

Just finding the right spot now :D

Edit: Is there a easier way to check the cab cams position other then restarting RW everytime?

Edit 2: How does this look for Cab View position?

Unfortunately it's the same as adding couplers/child objects, you have to restart every time to see the updated version. The position you have now is nice, but maybe move a bit to the right? Or you could rotate the camera a tad to the right, I'd actually go for the 2nd option myself, I don't really like head on views, a bit of variation is always nice :)

Personally I think it is a bit too much to the left, shifting it slightly to the right will make it perfect for me.

Excellent work by the way, you are steaming on nicely! :D

Thanks Guys

How would you rotate the camera slightly?

I'd say its very slightly too low, the sun visor wouldn't have a big effect if you sat that low. The track looks very realistic from that height, though.

OK I will try raising it a bit - thanks

do you think this image is taken from roughly drivers eye line?

If so will help getting a suitable height

Edit: Also if anyone knows what's on the "back wall" of the Class 73 Cab would be most appreciated, else it will remain a plain wall

I think that's someone standing up, I think the drivers viewpoint would be in line with the 'Maximum speed 90mph', or just in line with the bit below it say SSF

Looks to be about eye height to me, as it is clearly looking over the shoulders of the driver and secondman

Try inbetween the two points you've show us so far, maybe that will look right.
