    Default Train Artisan ESE Activities?

    I experienced a hard drive failure a while back, and while most of my TRAINSIM files were backed up (thankfully!), somehow the ESE Activities were not.

    There were a number of them that were supplied with the Empire State Express Trainset (e.g., Employee Appreciation Special, Great Train Race (Steam vs. Diesel, etc.)). I have the trainset and the consists, only lacking the activities.

    If anyone has these, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know.

    Many thanks in advance,

    If you have the ESE trainset disc, you should also have the activities, unless you ripped off the original (surely not! LOL!).

    Hi David - I downloaded my copy of the ESE bundled with all activities from the TA site when it was freeware.

    Its not freeware anymore, it is part of the TA American Classics package. You must buy it to get the ESE. The freeware version is now illegal to pass around I think.

    If someone else got it *originally* as freeware with the usual freeware disclaimers about distribution (i.e., OK to distribute so long as not for profit, and credit given, etc.), then I wonder if it's really illegal(??).

    A nice juicy legal question for anyone out there with a legal background.

    Thaks in advance for illuminating this for me.

    A question of law here I think. So I bought American classics when it was originally free? (wish I had known!). And now someone who cannot get the activities (which he had for free), cannot get the activities from me, when I have payed for them?

    Lawyers could make millions out of that! (What do you call 1000 lawyers at the bottom of the sea? A good start! LOL!).

    I live in the UK, so posting them to Don Shepley land is a bit of a nono. See if you can find someone in the US to send you what you want.

    Well, no lawyers needed, I created all those activities and will be happy to send them all to you. Drop me a line at [email protected] with "ESE activities" in the subject line.

    Nice to know who did them. They were all very good, except getting up the Austrian route with an ESE, which would tempt the patience of a saint! LOL. I think I did it once. Then I substituted a somewhat more powerful locomotive.

    Thanks Rob - they *are* some really great activities and I really miss having them. Much obliged.

    LOL David. Pretty convoluted-eh?
