    I've gotten several requests for the stock and consists used in the route. All stock and consist files used in the Omura activities are default - they came with MSTS as part of the original installation, so they should be present in your MSTS installation. If you have removed that stuff for whatever reason, you should be able to restore it using your install disks. As previously pointed out here, I cannot legally distribute the stock.

    Edit: It has been brought to my attention that some folks may just have Open Rails installed, and don't own MSTS. I hadn't thought of that, I only started using ORTS recently and I guess I just assumed everyone has MSTS.

    It's possible to substitute other stock for the default stuff I used, either editing the consist files themselves with Notepad, or using another consist editor. The trains used in the route's activities are all passenger trains, some of the AI trains are electric, but wouldn't have to be.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Is there any 3-6 Japanese stock available anywhere? I've not been able to find any...

    Yes, not in a big rush to try a switch either!

    I picked up the 3-6 torch for a while, but haven't touched it in a couple years. Switches and diamonds are a nightmare to build...

    Thanks Carlo.

    There was at one time someone who was working on 42" gauge track but then he just disappeared.

    Yes, you have to create switches (and crossovers) with the desired gauge. But doing that is much less work than rebuilding the full track layout.

    Just curious though, there is a setting in ORNYMG to change the gauge of a route but will that change the gouge for that route permanently or would you keep having to change it every time you want to run the route? Also, I think I read in a ET thread you have to do a lot of work to get the switches converted. What does that do it you them want to run a standard gauge route?

    The setting won't fix switches though

So in that respect it is not completely accurate.
    The via metrica meter gauge track system would be the closes approximate.

    Has it been reproduced with 1,067 mm tracks like the original, or with 1,435 mm ones (standard gauge)?

    The equipment for the activities Jeff supplied were just equipment that was supplied on the MSTS discs. I thought years ago Microsoft gave the OK to share this as they had abandoned MSTS.

    As some people have thrown up the fire alarm.... Consist files are not copyrighted. Those can be shared.

    The equipment in said files... that's still considered payware.

    If anyone has been trying to contact me via email using the address in the readme file. be advised that I misspelled the address; there should be 3 "f"s, not 2. Or PM me here. Sorry for the inconvenience.
