    I still miss Otto. I also never met him.

    But I wonder what some of us are like off-screen! People can have quite different personalities in person.

    It's also wise to do as CD's as old as MSTS are liable to fail. They have a shelf life and it has long since expired.
    And then there is the matter of computers no longer coming with CD drives. For...

    I don't know the answer here, but if you want to figure it out, you need to follow the chain of files that call other files. Start with the .eng file and find the two locations for .sms files (one...

    So it seems the consist editor is not find your rolling stock and consists. So it is no surprise that Open rails can find it either.

    I understand there are probably some good reasons not to allow that, but it sure would be useful. Google would do a better job with the search.

    In order to see the trains in open rails, you have to put it into a consist or activity. Or use one that somebody else made. ...

    That's good news, because you will figure it out and then it will be simple. It's not fundamentally...

    I'm not familiar with the CGW, but none of those requirements require a mini-route. Scalerail, Xtracks and newroads can all co-exist with other routes not using them.
