    If this the wrong place to be bringing this up, please tell me. I've done some more work, using Archibald and the occasional hint in OR log files. All the GG-1 locomotives had a problem in the TrainBrakeMaxPressure parameters -- the author did not leave a space between the numeric value and the '#' starting the inline comment. The K4 engine had a CoalBurning parameter that was less than that specified in Rudolph Richter's manual. Two of the GG-1s had incorrect brake slot names. I don't know if any of these problems were preventing the Senator Vincent activity from loading, but after correcting them at least I now have the progress bar at the bottom of the screen. After six minutes it has almost completed, but hangs at that point. I attach the latest log file.

    Oh, dear. I finally got around to re-reading the various README files in different locations and see that I missed the notice that "larger" activities take ten minutes to load. This is discouraging, since there are no other activities for the route available, yet. I also discovered that the installation program moved .eng and .wag files from my MSTS installation to the PRR_EAST_REG2\TRAINS\TRAINSET folder, instead of just copying them. I was able to copy most of them back, except for the SCOTSMAN.

    I do have logging checked on the opening screen of OR. Where does the program drop the file? Is the file a .txt or .log or some other format?

    >>>Hello Roger:
    From the readme document:
    B]!!!!! DO NOT INSTALL THIS INTO AN EXISTING Microsoft Train Simulator installation. DO NOT!!!!![/B]

    Regarding moving engine/wag files.
    The PRR-East installs to it's own Mini Route format. It DOES NOT move any files!
    What happens is any existing files in the target folders are overwritten (read destroyed!) by the installer.

    Basically what happens is this: If you try installing to an existing MSTS installation you will definitely destroy (overwrite) the MSTS installation.

    I believe I made this clear in the install instructions.
    Additionally the ONLY GG1 loco I modified was 4856. I adjusted the Cabview and made minor tweaks to the brake parameters.
    I also added Open Rails steam parameters to most of the steam locomotives. I probably did miss a few because I was building a route, not fixing rolling stock at all.
    There were and still are lots of problems with the rolling stock. I just didn't have the time to fix everything.

    Vince Now that I know what to look for I will post a log when it generates. I had several saves of the activity during the times when I noticed the missing files. I loaded one only to discover the tracks now appear as they should and remained in place up to the point I left the activity. I then attempted to start the activity from the beginning only to find my system may not be up to the task. This is a task for another day. Thanks for the assist, I'll post further when I have something substantial to report. Henry

    Downloaded this route last week. Took about 14 hours but it was worth it. Fantastic!
    I will have to port over some of my activities from the old version.
    Thanks to Vince et al for all their hard work.

    Hi Jon.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    But it's bad news for activities made for any of the older versions. They will not work due to extensive track changes in Philadelphia, Rahway (Union Interlocking) Lewistown, Pa (completely rebuild), Harrisburg (track & signals) and the addition of the six operating turntables.
    The older activities could be repaired by fixing the broken paths. Open Rails has a tool for that.
    Enjoy.

    Yes and the Trackviewer works nicely for the chore. The "Auto Fix broken Paths" function works fine for most of the paths...however, a few still have to be repaired manually. Then running activities to make sure they are correct, modify if needed, will take some more time, but..what are hobbies for? I have one or two more to fix, but most are repaired and all the activities are running on the new route.
    Vince, you are a mensch. Thanks for all your time and effort.
