I've run this activity and found that some of the Location Events and Action events were not triggered properly. When spotting the Wood chips, the Event triggers the completion of the spotting before the message to keep pushing back until stop order is given. Also the F11 work order instructions have the I-Beams spotted on 1 and 3 instead of 1 and 2. Other location events had not been trigger at all.

I searched the C&NW forums which indicated a fix for the activity, but none was found.

I've gone into the activity editor and fixed all of the event triggers and the activity now completes correctly with all location event messages and action events taking place in the correct order.

I've repackaged the complete scenario and attached here. Brian: if you see this, maybe you can replace the zip in the Work order files with this one.

I am currently running this route. After I drop the I-beams and pull forward to clear the switch, my speed jumps and I have a difficult time stopping the darn train. I tried going very slowly and was able to start backing up, but them my rearward momentum stopped and we started going forward again. Tried to look on the old forums for this activity but didn't find anything. got any suggestions?

Got my chips spotted. Now it is time to move the I-beams. Hooked up to them, pulled them up the grade to clear the switch, put her in reverse and lo and behold we start moving forward....on an uphill grade...doesn't make any sense to me at all. Nothing I do gets me moving in reverse....with 100% throttle, in reverse, and sand I am able to hold what I have, but no rearward movement.

Got this one completed. Took some thinking and splitting the I-beams into 2 but it is done.
