    File Name >>> prr-east-v2-install.zip

    Searched by "Vince Cockeram", looked in MSTS routes, it's still there.
    Cheers, Gerry

    Hi Vince, thanks for your help.

    I might be confused here, I thought their were Two Versions? One being for OpenRails and seem to remember being told not to use the MSTS Version.

    Might be wrong of course ?

    Thanks

    Paul.

    My whole MSTS install runs in OR

    Hi Paul, I'm Gerry ( R. Steele ) --- I was posting ( somewhat ineptly it appears ) that I searched the library using "Vince Cockeram" -- the name of the generous member that did all the work on PRR Ver2.

    ... and no you are not wrong --- Yes, there are two versions ( and a third rare version1 that has Activity templates made for it ) --- the original made for MSTS and the Vince Cockeram's reworked Ver2 that is strongly suggested be run ONLY in OR.

    Which brings me to daniel's observation.

    Yes it probably does, so does everybody else's ( mine does )=== the difference being that the MSTS simulator "exe" file probably doesn't have the capabilities to successfully load and run PRR Ver2...which was made expressly to run with the OR simulator.

    Hi Gerry, thanks for reply.

    I have Found PRR_EAST_REG-2 Route, amazing the difference (.zip ) makes when searching for a Route.

    However, Must have done something wrong, having Installed Into Drive C as C:\PRR_EAST_REG-2 ( Done several times before ) and directing It to the Installation Profile in Open Rails PRR_EAST_REG-2 is there in the list along with MSTS.

    But when selecting It, It does not load anything.

    Will keep trying.

    Thanks

    Paul.

    Exclamation Intstall Instructions MUST be followed

    Paul.

    Please be sure to follow the install directions EXACTLY!!!!
    Very Important as stated in the ReadMe

    If you freelance and install it without following the directions you WILL screw up any existing installs you may have!

    Regards,
    vince cockeram

    (edit-add)
    PS And to add: Most of the provided activities included with the route take a LONG time to load (>5 minutes!) due to the HUGE amount of AI traffic trains.
