    Short answer - No, you cannot make changes to the activity file during the activity, AFAIK. However, there is a way to do what you want in OR...you could swap out the engines using the Train List...

    You have a basic, but very common, misconception about OR...you are not playing MSTS through OR...Open Rails is an entirely different program...it does not use any MSTS executables. However, OR can...

    I've never heard of that...most interesting...will have to investigate this.
