    Using Downloaded Cars And Locomotives

    Or All About The Consist Editor

    To use any add-on cars or locomotives (or to create different consists even with just the default ones) you use the consist editor.

    Unfortunately, the consist editor is difficult to find, as it's actually a subsection of the activity editor. When you installed Train Simulator you should have gotten two desktop icons, one for the sim itself and another labeled "launcher"; launcher is the one that starts up the editors. Double click on it and then from the menu select activity editor. If you don't have the second icon, use the Windows start button and look in Programs | Microsoft Games | Train Simulator for Train Simulator Editor And Tools and click on that.

    Once the editor starts, open the File menu and select new. You'll be prompted for some information about the new activity you're about to create but just use the defaults, as you are not actually going to save the activity anyway.

    Now, look at the right side of the editor main window, for the section labeled "Player Services"; technically a consist is a player resource. Under this section click the "new" button and that will open yet another window. In the middle of this window is a section labeled "Consists" and another "new" button; click this and the consist editor will load.

    To create a consist, choose a file name for your consist and a screen name. The screen name is what will show up within the sim when you open the consist drop down box. Then, simply choose the locomotives and cars you want in your consist and save when you're done.

    Tips: Consists are organized according to the lead locomotive. If you make the BNSF Dash 9 the first locomotive in your consist when you run the sim you will find your consist by first selecting the BNSF Dash 9 and then looking in the consist drop down box. If you have more than one locomotive in your consist you can reverse the direction they point by right clicking on them.
