    Just reinstall the route to a temp folder to get the missing consists. Copy what you need then delete it

    Just replace the consists you lost with other consists thats available on the Trainset folder. Thats all.. It will work.. if you delete what you lost, the whole thing will start to spew errors..

    All those Scenic 1 consists you listed did not come from the Scenic 1 default route. They look to be added from additional freeware activities.

    All those Scenic 2 consists are harder to decipher their origins as the default route came with certain consists, but then the Loco Upgrade add-on-pack for Scenic 2 added new loco numbers and replaced the activities with newer versions calling upon newer .CON files that were built around the newer locomotives added. After installing the add-on pack, NONE of the version 1 models and road numbers were called upon by the revised activities. It did not delete anything from TRAINSET, it just left the old numbers in case third party activities still used them.

    G'day all, I am pleased to say that I have now got "Scenic 1" up and running, it is a nice route and performs well in my clunky old PC.
    Now to attack "Scenic 2" and hopefully obtain a similar result.

    G'day all, I was having a cleanup the other day and found eight DVD's of payware routes hidden away, so I will be going through them and hope they are all OK.

    Good luck, my CD-Rom of the original Streamlines ATSF Seligman sub unfortunately reads as a blank.

    I have that problem sometimes, and the culprit is the cd/dvd reader which goes offline and not recognised by the OS. Solution, remove it from the devices list and reboot.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    I've tried the disk on multiple computers and they all read the CD as blank. So unfortunately I'm SOL
