Yep, version numbering for programs ignores the normal rules of decimal mathematics - the dot is used as a separator so 3.1 is not the same as 3.10 and 3.17 is much newer than 3.9 Basically version 3 sub-version 17 Each update changes the sub-version number, it will take a major change to become ver...

Thanks XPT - I missed that article. The previous thing I'd heard was that first would consider doing a feasibility study

Guess there's no chance of them looking at the Portishead line then!

Its probablty suddenly become case sensitive, so you will either have to rename the file to #20901_Blue.eng (capital B, everything else lower case), edit the entry in the ENG file to match the filename, or just ignore it and curse conbuilder for being so fussy!

The signalling errors from TSUtils are often bogus! However the presence of track 36047 is a mystery. Its not in my installed version of 1.2, nor in the W files of the 1.3 or 1.4.1 updates - so it must have been introduced after then. I installed ve and found lots of these little 0.8 metre sections ...

It's not the original tsection.dat which is needed. It will not start using this. Is this original mideast or mideast (steam) ? The original is definately built on the default - because that was all there was at the time!! If you have the steam version and it doesn't start with default tsection, th...

You are getting that 'error' because mideast was built on the default tsection.dat and you have a 'standardised' version. In the original tsection.dat file, dynamic track started at number 376, but in the standardised one it starts at 40,000 - which is how they get all the extra track sections in it...

This normally happens if the route folder on the author's pc is different to the routeID in the TRK file.

If this is the case there is nothing you can do as the user.

But Jon has a point, if one doesn't have the default stock, and these consists are installed, then one will get errors every time one starts MSTS.

Not sure why this is in the North America forum though, surely it applies to all train sim users!

The M6 is at 89.51 (This is the Nettle Hill viaduct I think) and the canal crosses again at 89.61

All this info from the quail track plans, so I've no idea how this equates to the real world!

Its a passing loop. So the train would stop to let something else pass.

well, its about 5 miles NW of rugby. To help locate it, the bridge over the oxford canal is at about 85½ and the Nettle Hill Viaduct is 89½. Oh, and theres another bridge over the canal at 88.1 - so the loop ends just before here.
