    This question should be sticked because it gets asked quite often and peeps don't utilize the search feature to see what the resolution is.

    Could you rename that TTMtapAP32_200.eng to TTMtapAP32_200.txt and attach it to your next post ?

    If it is too big then ZIP the *.ENG file and attach it.

    1. Look in the ENG file at line 98, 248: Does it say something like Headlight (n) where n is a number greater than three?
    If yes, Install MSTS-Bin.
    If no, start here: http://msts.steam4me.net/tutorials/traindb.html

    Yuri,
    I went to your site and saw the text editor conTEXT. I made a small donation and downloaded the file I opened it and opened the engine file for the loco but the line numbers did not appear on the left side of the file. Point me in the direction of how to get the line numbers to showsso I can find the text line with the error.
    HarryThanks,
    Harry

    The file is too lrge to send, so using ConText I located line 248.
    It looks like this
    comment( Front Right Marker Consist End Unit )
    Type ( 0 )
    Conditions (
    Headlight ( 0 )
    Unit ( 4 )
    Penalty ( 1 )
    Control ( 2 )
    Service( 2 )
    Line 248 is Penalty ( 1)
    Thanks for your help.

    Do you realize the answer was given by Yuri (steam4me) in his post #5 where he clearly stated "....Does it say something like Headlight (n) where n is a number greater than three?"

    You do have a line in your post ............Unit ( 4 ) that does indeed REQUIRE that Bin be installed to use this engine.

    Please reference the Bin Manual Lighting section for details.

    Genbtlemen,
    I apologize to all who responded to my question. What I thought was MSTS Bin was only MSTS BIN Backup. I installed the latest version and all is well.
