    Now updated to 3.6.2


    1. Advanced Mode:- Updated the “New_Engine_Template.lua” & “Alternative_New_Engine_Template.lua” files to work with the Virtual Railroads VR_BR185_2_EL, if you are having trouble getting their other trains to work then it may be worth running the data extractor again and see if the loco is now fixed.

    2. Both modes, I have supplied an update lever map for the VR_BR185_2_EL which allows you to use the quick release of the TrainBrake, you will need to put the lever back to release before the throttle will work.

    Available now £ 9.99 or equivelant https://www.armstrongpowerhous…lass_325_enhancement_pack

    IIRC the NS VIRM would probably be closest, but I don't know how practical it would be. I just turned off the sound, but I think I won't drive it much until there is some sort of fix. To clarify, I meant swapping the sound.

    Apologies for the delays to updates, I am working long hours at the moment.

    RalfK I have the Purrparot version, but I also have a minimum of 53.34 radius curves on my running lines. Some of the sidings it is down to 43.8, but I haven't tried running it in these yet. At the moment the Railway is in Nederlandse mode. In a month or two it will be in Deutsche mode and I will find out. I found that some loks like the Gutzold BR155 had problems with some Sachsenmodelle coaches even on straight track, and some Acme coaches will not couple together with profi-couplings unless modified. There are other loks, wagons and coaches as well with similar problems. With the amount of models I have changing, to a different type of coupling isn't really an option. It has been hard enough to go digital, but fun with some of the challenges.

    RalfK the problem with glueing the coupling in place is that if it gets damaged you have a lot of problems and bad language getting it out again. It is why I chose to shorten the NEM box. I Use Fleischmann Profi-couplings on all my non uk stock.

    I have 23 Piko loks, all nice models, they are well ahead of other manufacturers with lighting and in engine room detail on the newer models. The sound is of variable quality, but no more so than Roco I would say

    Delayed by the disaster known Brexit a few additions to the Bahnpark arrived last week. Seems that Roco have a big problem with Brexit at the moment, like everybody else. Bozo obviously isn't a railway enthusiast. Piko at least seem to be coping.


    Roadrunner_1973 I used to split my content folder into 4 parts and rename each one as I wanted to use it. Something has changed in TS, because now I no longer need to do so. I am surprised you still have problems because I have around 14000 scenarios, not including the ones in AP files, and I have been able to combine the 4 parts and now only need 1 folder. Is your TS installation up to date?
