Here are three ways that you can find the equipment that you need:

1. Take a hard copy of the list and go to the Roster page in NETS and find the equipment - long and slow and not recommended.

2. Take a hard copy of the list and go to the Work Order Search Center in NETS and go to item 7. Type the file name, including the extension (.eng or .wag), into the window and click on the Go button. If the item is in our database, you will see a place where you can download the file for the equipment. OK, but still slow.

3. Take a hard copy of the name of the work order(s) that you have installed - hopefully only one at a time - and go to the Work Order Search Center in NETS and then go to the first item on the menu. Use the drop-down list to select the name of the work order that you have installed. Click on the Go button. A smaller window will open with the details of the work order. Click on the word "Equipment" in the first line of the details, next to the work order name. Another window will open with the list of equipment items that you need to run the work order. You can use the grey buttons to download the files that you need. Read the readme files in the zip files for the equipment, as sometimes you will need other files, such as cabs or sounds. They are sometimes separate because of the requirements of the original developer of the equipment. Recommended method - the quickest way.

That should get rid of the error messages for you. We really urge our members to move any activities that are supplied with the route out of the MSTS installation and install one of ours. That way, we can try to support you if things go wrong.
