    Default Trucks turning Wrong Way

    I came across a thread about this recently but I'd never encountered the issue. It seems to be an Open Rails problem because the stock works fine in MSTS.

    So now I've downloaded a model with just this issue.

    Specifically with this model it's the trailing truck that turns OUT at the curves rather than INto them.

    Obviously I've been searching with "truck" as the keyword but my efforts have thrown up nothing?

    I seem to remember it was a reasonably easy fix ....but without it I'm forced to run the stock in MSTS.

    Any pointers/solutions appreciated.

    Thread over at ET about this...cannot find it right now. If I remember it dealt with SLI trucks.

    Try this Geoff, from the "OR Fixes Links" thread, maybe it covers the scenario you are describing?

    Geoff, if the above doesn't work, I'd suggest searching using the term "Bogie", as that's what they are called in MSTS/OR shape file structure.

    Yes I'll do that because the only alteration I could see in the files was not either bogie as above. Both M41 were already set to 0

    Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

    What's frustrating is that in the post I remembered when I saw this someone had posted a picture of the problem just like these from OR. The MSTS shots are from exactly the same position and there's no problem.

    I'll search again using Bogie.....

    Thanks for the link Freidrich.

    Those are excellent models I'll give them a try and my interest will be explained....

    Most of my European links are outdated but it's good to see that new stuff is still being made.

    In case you wondered why I was interested in the X73500's...... I first saw these on holiday in France on a quiet rural branch line. It struck me that here in the UK where Branch lines had massive closures in the late 60's and over the pond where passenger services were considered uneconomic, how different things might have been if the modern railcars we have to day had been available.

    So a "what if..." post https://www.trainsim.com/vbts/showth...operated-today

    BTW I found a thread on ET about the trucks .....which ended rather unsatisfactorily "found a solution on a german website forum" with no links or explanation. I do love it when folk ask for help and don't share solutions...
