    You've already started a thread on this and several folk have replied . Have you read the manual for trainstore? It's VERY detailed. AS I already suggested why not try Mini-Routes.

    After exiting MSTS and returning to Train Store a dialog opens that says:

    You reported saving the Scenario in another thread. BUT did you reload the Scenario when you returned to Train Store to run the saved activity?

    Train Store will save the Scenario as a TSS file. Scenarios are configurations of Train Store identifying which routes, activities, paths, services, consists and rolling stock are unstored. If you do anything else with Train Store between saving the Scenario and then trying to access the saved Activity, the Saved Activity may become stored and not accessible. Therefore you MUST open the saved Scenario used previously when the Activity was saved.

    Concerning your number of consists: Train Store has the capability of reporting things that are not used in Activities or identified as consists to load fir use in explore mode. If you run this tool and then take the output to pare down your Consist folder by moving these consists to a "Holding" folder (maybe a subfolder of your Consists Folder) then this will Allow you to run MSTS w/o the too many consists limitation.

    It is very good at what is does.
    Some people don't know how it works.
    It works by moving files to where MSTS can't find them, and here lies the key.

    Did you uninstall train store, or delete its folders?
    If you uninstalled train store, then you are safe.
    The train store folder structure will still be on your C drive.
    It has a consists and trainset folders, that just need to be moved back to the MSTS consist and trainset folders.
    Cheers

    Man, have you read the manual for the "damn program"? It's a great program for those who take the time to READ and understand it's functionality.
    Like Derek mentioned, it sounds to me like you possibly did not unstore any of your stored trainsim files before dumping Train Store.

    .....you can lead a horse to water etc. A search of these or the forum at UKTS will quickly find LOADS of posts about missing consists with Trainstore..... and all because the user failed to unstore stuff .

    Still you can use the forums to get help ...or you can use them to vent your spleen.

    A bit of common sense should tell anyone that a utility downloaded as much as Trainstore HAS to be a good one?

    I deeply apologize for all of the crap I have been giving you guys!
    By the spelling, you can probably tell that this is not really me.
    I will go back and read the fine manual.

    Thank you for all the help!!
