    Default Route opens in Editor but not in MSTS

    Can someone outline the necessary files that make a route appear in MSTS. I have one that you can use Route Editor on but it must be missing some little file or something in a file that stops it from being in the list of routes when you go into MSTS. Yes the .trk file and .ref files are there.

    Thanks

    A route needs an activity, or at least a path, before it will show up in the Route Selection list.

    HI folks,

    just to be more precise:

    MSTS as a whole needs at least one activity to be present in one of the various routes installed. Doesn't matter which route. It can even be the steam, diesel or electric "lesson" on the tutorial route. With no activities present at all, MSTS will crash on loading.

    Each individual route needs at least one valid path to be present in its Paths subfolder. It doesn't matter how long or short, it just must be there to give you at least one valid starting point. Or in other words: No path = no starting point to select from on the starting screen. MSTS will load, but not display the route.
