You'll have to make activities yourself since it's a real chore to get the activities and required items from DW. It's rather simple to do and there are a few utilities that can help you with that.
    This is some sizeable information. Honestly, looking through all the hoops I MIGHT to jump through to wipe the dust off of these old MSTS routes to make them work for OR seemed like a real pain. I looked at some videos regarding activity making. It seems daunting at first, but it might be worth playing with if I could get some downtime from work. The sky is the limit with that. Thank you!

    If you re-read his post you'll see that he's got West Colton and is after the DW stuff.
    If you read a little further on you'll see that DW are no longer in the business of supplying their defunct products.

    If you like yard switching, and other yard activities, the West Colton is a good route to have. There is an activity template at Skyline Computing. http://www.skylinecomputing.com/templates2.htm

    Almost all the activities that were available from DW used the "SP packs" ( there were four plus some other additions ) that were sold by Diesels West. You could probably sub in equipment from the TS library or SLI payware ( pre TrainSimulations ). The route itself has some nice features, although there are places for improvements for those knowledgeable about using the Route Editors ( TSRE or the MSTS RE ).

    I am IN FACT an avid yard switcher enjoyer....haha. Something about breaking down a huge consist and sorting it into little cuts and doing the converse of that brings me a form of inner peace nothing else can.

    This is the berries right here. Thank you very much.
