    The SIFA alarm is a dead man's switch that the engineer must press periodically to ensure that the driver is awake. If the switch is not pressed the train applies the brakes.

    In the BR442 the SIFA alarm switch is located at the engineer's feet. To get this achievement look down at your feet while driving, locate the switch and mash the A button. You don't have to wait until you hear an alarm. I did this between stops and completed it in under one run. Although I wasn't counting, it seemed like the achievement popped long before I got to 500.

    Edit: Dynamite Andy pointed out that you can just mash the B button. There's no need to look at the switch as I suggested.

    ComesBrothersDo you need to turn on the SIFA? Do you need to change it from Isolated to Unisolated?

    Fried KarmaYou don't need to make any changes. Just mash buttons.

    ComesBrothersOkay thanks man, I didnt understand it. I always turned the sifa alarm from isolated to unisolated, cause I thought it has to be on. I played now like 7 services and nothing happened, because I have turned it on I guess.

    ComesBrotherslol, now it was turned off and after a few smashes on the B button I got the achievement. But now I don't know if the other one counted??? Because, then I had like 40 to 60 sifa alarms in those 7 services i did (a service had 40 to 60) so 7x50=350, when I played with the sifa alarm on. And when it was turned on, I also smashed the B button, but I gues when you turn it on, and play it real life, it wont work? Or it does work?. So as you said dont turn it on, just smash B laugh

    Ross NCC1701I am pretty sure that this achievement is unobtainable for some people for some reason. I have tried all possible scenarios, with SIFA on and with SIFA off, pressing just before, at and just after the alarm, before and after the audible alarm, looking down and pressing A, and just mashing B. My estimate is that I have acknowledged well and truly over 2,000 alarms. I have reported this to Dovetail a few times, and their only answer is that they are unable to track the number of alarms acknowledged and that perhaps the action is not working as expected.

    I am simply giving up on this one and assuming it is yet another unobtainable achievement (at least for me) that will likely never get repaired.

    NellumNaiStill broken. I've done easily 2,000 or more mashing the B and even tried looking at the pedal and mashing A .. all to no avail.

    Resi Gamer 18Right so this one is very hit and miss.

    Its been posted before that creating a new ingame account sorts this, but even that didnt properly work.

    You need to start up the 0541 service, and set SIFA to EIN.

    You then need to drive at roughly 27mph and looking down at your feet spam the x (A on Xbox) button. This will NOT pop at 500 alarms, its more like 4000. So keep at it and it will eventually unlock. Ive been trying for 3 days to get this, and after making a new profile it unlocked after 4000 ish presses. Regional Rider is also glitched, that has not unlocked and ive rode roughly 60 miles as passenger now.

    USS PrometheusI was concerned about this one looking at the comments, but got it first time. Combination of A+B mashing.
