    Default Learning Activity & Consist Editors

    Hello,
    The manual seems pretty straight forward, but what I am missing is - where/how do I display a route map similar to the old AE so I can view track, and determine where I want start/endpoints, and where to place loose consists, etc.?

    Thanks very much,
    Neil

    The only OR tool is Trackviewer that allows you to make the required paths before moving to making the activity and placing consists. This can be open at the same time as the TSRE activity/consist editor.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    You don't place LC's via the map like the old AE, you can now place them by selecting the spur name from the pull down menu and zooming the camera around the route to that exact spot. Then you watch via the camera as the consist gets placed. See it as you flip its direction or slide adjust the starting point.

    Revisiting,
    I have the 09/20 OR manual, and unless I am missing it, I can't see where it explains how to use the Tools/Track Viewer to edit paths??
    I am looking to be able to edit an existing paths start point to accommodated whatever player train I want to run. So, different lengths of train determine the adjustment that the start point needs. I can open the player path, but then have no idea how to adjust it. I see the option to create "new path" in the path editor tab, so how does one adjust start and end points on existing paths?

    Thanks very much!

    Neil,
    Click on the help tab in TrackViewer.
    Click documentation, it'll offer to take you to the OR documents page.
    On the right side of the page, about in the middle you'll see the link to go to the TrackViewer manual. You can view it on line or download it.
    Here's the link.
