    Hi Scott,

    Download time on my Las Vegas cox.net cable connection is 3.5 minutes.
    The installer takes about 10 minutes to do its job.
    The initial start of the ClickTeam Installer to its opening panel takes 5 minutes and there is no indication that anything is going on so be patient.

    regards, vince

    Thanks Vince.

    Could you provide start paths for the Port Road?

    I am hoping someday someone puts up electrical wires along the electrified sections. A huge job but well worth the effect on the old PRR.

    Done everything right per instructions, loaded into Open Rails using options. However, it won't even show more than the route title in Open Rails. Can somebody help? Thanks

    Got it going, forget the above. Didn't look at all the files that came with it. Merged in directory from old PRR minus the route and it worked, the added the train file and it worked.

    However, I found a problem. The tracks disappear going up the grade on Horseshoe Curve and don't reappear going all the way around until I stopped the sim on the other side. Thought it might be my computer, and tried again several times under different scenarios in Open Rails, and all four tracks disappeared at the same point about midway up the hill from Altoona each time.

    Hi Steve,
    We need much more information, please!
    For the record, having already downloaded the route (about 28 minutes using ADSL), I have just installed it in 5 minutes and it's now running in Open Rails.

    Whatever folder you create to receive the installation becomes the root folder, which must be specified when using 'Option' to add content into OR.

    Cheers,
    Ged
