    Winter on Rogers Pass 2020 Activity Pack Released

    Hello again everybody,

    This morning the file library has been added to with my Winter 2020 Activity Pack for MLT's Rogers Pass. The 8 activities include anything from long intermodals to manifests to unit trains, based on how schedules and operations go in the year 2020. Like always if anybody has questions, comments, quandaries, compliments, issues, or anything else regarding this set feel free to post here.

    I hope you all enjoy!

          This is wonderful news!

          There's nothing that I love more than hauling heavy freight with modern diesels over the Rockies!

          Thank you!

              I got a question...are the DIT.wag ( dead engines ) that were provided, integral to the activities, can they be replaced with live engines in the act files. In the consists, if they are used as dead weight, can't the engine just be shut down in OR and achieve the same effect?

              I'm replacing all the AI's with other comparable locomotives.
              Cheers, Gerry

                  Hey there, Gerry,

                  The DIT wag files aren't 100% needed. I used them on both player and AI consists. In all candor, I am still learning all the OR features and didn't know that engines could be shut down in the sim. That's why I used some DIT motors on empty unit trains.

                  In short, it shouldn't effect the activities. But I'm not sure if the AI will behave differently.

                      Hi there

                      So what is a DIT engine and how would I modify an eng file to make one?

                        Hey there, Bert,

                        A DIT locomotive is dead in tow. Essentially dead weight of a shut down locomotive. RouteRiter has the ability to make an AI eng file or DIT wag file with relative ease.

                          Thanks for the info. I'll give RR a try.

                          It's funny. I bought Kicking Horse Pass back in 2004 so I've been using MSTS and now OR for 15+ years and never come across a DIT engine before. Just goes to show you can teach a new dog old tricks lol.

                              Hello,

                              Correct, these activities will go into your MSTS folder. The activities themselves are for Open Rails only since:

                              1. Creation and testing were done on ORTS level platforms and not MSTS
                              2. Some activities have Open Rails only functions and may not operate properly in MSTS

                              These activities will not impact any other objects in your MSTS folder as they shouldn't overwrite existing files, unless somebody else out there has been naming con, srv, trf, etc. files starting with [EKRP].
