    Default View Bug after coupling to part of a consist in Manual Mode

    OR Version: X1427
    Route - Pocohontas; Activity - created with Activity Generator; Location - Bluefield yard.

    I switch to Manual mode to back up and open a switch to a siding and then enter to pick up 15 cars from a set of 20.
    I connect brake hoses, uncouple unwanted cars, release handbrake.
    Some observations:
    1. The last car shows "State Emergency" until I start to move the cars, then clears to Release.

    2. Bug: the Alt-9 and Alt-3 keys to select which car to view are now selecting only the cars that are left in the siding
    that were part of the original consist. I cannot get the 2 or 3-views to show the part with the locomotives.

    3. If I now select the 4-view, OR crashes with:
    Error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    at ORTS.Train.ChangeToNextCab()
    at ORTS.TracksideCamera.Update(ElapsedTime elapsedTime)... etc.

    This is reproduceable.

    Hi All;
    An update for those not reading the Bug site - a quick fix for the problem (at least for the current test versions) is to press the 9-key (Camera Jump Back Player) - this restores the 2 and 3-views to normal.
