    I have seen this working on my Downeaster route and I found that if I zoomed out and went over the area the scenery would suddenly pop back into view.

    Remove the AI service entry in the Traffic and Activity files. This could be done with a Unicode capable text editor such as Notepad++.
    Or I think it can be done from TSRE by editing the traffic.
