    Default "MSTS L&HR V4.0 Route" and "MSTS 1940's L&HR V1.0.4 Route"

    I am confused.

    What is the difference between the two routes available for download, the "MSTS L&HR V4.0 Route" and the "MSTS 1940's L&HR V1.0.4 Route"?

    The first is set in the 1960's while the second one was backdated to the 1940's.

    Thank you Paul. So they are two distinctly different routes. I assume then that activities for the 1960s version will not run on the 1940s version.

    Thanks again for the information Paul. That is a pity as I am mainly interpreted in the older 1940 version but there appears to be no activities available anywhere for that version.

    There is an "activity generator" template for the route. Activity generator is a program from skyline computing that makes endless activities for routes. I recommend it. skylinecomputing.com

    G'day, I have the MSTS 1940's L&HR installed and there are seven activities with it:-
    Warwick classification
    zcoal1 - Anthracite to New England
    zpmt1 - Port Morris Turn
    ztrjet1 - Eastbound Piggyback - Part 1
    ztrjet2 - Eastbound Piggyback - Part 2
    ztrjet3 - Eastbound Piggyback - Part 3
    ztrjet3a - Eastbound Piggyback - Part 3 alt
    As far as I know they came with the route Version 1.0.4.
    Regards
    Barrie

    Thanks Barrie, but I have just installed version 1.0.4, plus the update, both of which I downloaded from TrainSim.com, and there are no activities, just a "Placeholder.txt" file in the Activities folder.

    Search the F/L for files with names like 'ztpig*.zip', IIRC there are several separate downloads for the Piggyback activity.

    Thanks again. Searching TrainSim.com file library for 'ztpig*.zip' finds nothing. Searching the forums for 'ztpig' finds a post concerning problems being had with that activity. It refers to version 3 of the route. Perhaps the activities were included with version 3 but not version 4. Version 3 is no longer available for download. Any thoughts on this?
