    Question ORTS reports "route with unexpected name" when retrieving saves of Surfliner 2

    When clicking on "Resume" in Open Rails for a Surfliner 2 save, there is a message like "Warning: Save 2013-07-13 9:43:53 AM found from a route with an unexpected name: Surfliner 2 ." Note the trailing space after the digit "2" before the period.

    I noticed that in the .trk file,. the route is identified as ("Surfliner 2 "), with three trailing spaces after the digit "2". I think OR may be trimming the name and then getting in trouble when comparing the trimmed string with the route name.
    Is there a reason why the route name has the trailing spaces? MSTS does not seem to care.

    In OR's case, it displays some saves that belong to different activities than the one being looked for.

    I get the same message, but in my case, only the saves for that activity are displayed, and, provided they are saved with the same version of OR as in use at the time, they load and run.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    Yes, if the save has a check mark, I can run it OK.

    I edited the .trk file to remove the extra spaces after the "2", and had no further problems,
    but I decided to report it as a bug to OpenRails. I found that it is caused by the comparing of two different versions of the route name, as I suspected, and it could happen again with other routes.
