    Extra information:
    You should include the Open Rails Log with requests for assistance if relevant.

    To enable Open Rails logging place a check in the Logging Box on the Open Rails opening screen pane
    Sorry but I must insist on log as troll requests never provide info when asked!

    E-mail requests for assistance should include the Open Rails log if relevant.

    The Train.exe you see in the download is a DUMMY to allow the user to test the install with Route_Riter
    Do NOT expect this dummy train.exe to function. Look at it's size! It's only a re-named text file. Secret message inside.

    On the The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor there is a Tablet. On it is written:
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
