    Hi Don,
    May I, respectfully, suggest that, maybe, the problem is with the version of tsection.dat file you are using?

    #38 does NOT contain a reference to file SR_1tEru_w_06d.s, but #44 DOES! I don't know in which version that file was added, but any version from #44 should contain it.

    I am not a route builder, but make this suggestion after checking a couple of files! Please excuse me if it doesn't provide a solution to your problem.

    Cheers,
    Ged

      Hi All,

      SR_1tEru_w_06d was introduced by Marc in tsection 42.

      It is highly recommended to use the latest tsection:-

      tsection52.zip

      You need to be careful as the tsection can get overwritten by an earlier version with every route install.

        That is something I did not know about, the overwriting of that file. How can I be sure the correct one is installed with a particular route update/upgrade? I thought the correcct one would be installed with the route.

        Thank you Derek for this information, it is most helpful. Yes installing that Tsection did the trick, at least in TSRE5, I will check it out with the train tomorrow. I am old, so I go to bed early....;-)

          You need to check the version of global tsection after EVERY route install.

          Mini routes are not affected as they are self contained.

            New alpha has dropped!
            https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fsa...ew?usp=sharing

            Changes since 05/23/2019 release:
            • Some roads and scenery added in Detroit
            • Scenery now largely complete between Harrison Street and Vreeland Road, including crossing signals
            • Speed limits on CN tracks corrected to those based off of January 28, 2007 employee timetables (this site was extremely helpful: http://www.cnrha.ca/node/986)
            • Two new activities added
            • SLI/TrainSimulation's new CN Ruel Sub is now a requirement to run the included activities and timetables

              Matt,

              I'm still working on the signals for your route. I had to rewrite all my signal scripts and haven't had a lot of time to do that of late (I'm working on the NS-CR system now, and GT is next).

              So far, I like how you've got things set up, but I do have one gripe, namely the crossing signals. Unless you've changed it this version, it looks like you make your active crossings by spreading visible elements across all lanes. That'll result in out of sync flashing and gates that come down at odd times (maybe even before the lights come on). What I do is put all of the objects you can see on one lane, and cover the rest with invisible crossing objects. I also control timings very precisely at crossings, down to varying light flash rates between different crossings. I can make a one-tile demonstrator if you'd like

                Nice to see that you're still working on the signals, even with that one setback. If time permits for you, since crossing tracks may need signals too, the NS-N&W system and the CSX-C&O systems could also be perfect for those tracks.

                So far, I have only placed the crossing signal elements on one lane per direction on undivided roads with multiple lanes in the same direction. But I may still consider tweaking some things, and I am interested in the demonstrator.

                  Those systems are on my radar, but it may be a while before they get done...though I did just make a position light signal I could tweak to NW specs.

                  As for the crossing demonstrator, I'll PM you when it's ready, probably tomorrow night, and I'll throw i a special bonus for this project

                    The NS/N&W line extending into Detroit actually uses vertical color light signals that were likely inherited from the Wabash.

                      Did some testing not too long ago, I was kinda impressed with it. Looking forward to the next updates..

                      Thanks for your time!

                        Any news reguarding Updates on this nice Route?

                        When you are busy with life and work these things get put aside. Just curious about a time-frame for the next installment.

                          Christmas is coming and I decided to post a new Detroit-Toledo Route Alpha!

                            Hmm...I'll have to get started on your signals again. I'll probably PM you an update sometime this weekend when I have a chance to sort through it

                              I am not able to find a list of rolling stock necessary to run the activities. Does one exist? If so where can I find it?

                                Look in the route's Docs folder for _Readme.rtf. Good info on this work in progress route, including the equipment required.
