Can PRRR activities that are converted to work with Hoodoo Pass be added to NETS? I have converted one activity, NEPR-219-01, D- Sprague to Fredrick freight train. The converted activity could be named NEHP-219-01 by changing PR to HP.

Since I don't have the PRRR route I first needed to create a minimal route for Activity Unpackager. A minimal route needs the activity directories, ACTIVITIES, PATHS, SERVICES, and TRAFFIC, along with a route definition file (.trk) and track database (.tdb). The route definition needs to have a matching route identifier, RouteID ( PRRR2 ). The track database only has to match the name defined by FileName ( PRRR2 ).

To convert an activity to run with Hoodoo Path, change the route identifier in the activity file (.act) to match RouteID ( PR_NERR ) and correct any broken paths.

If you would be willing to convert them, that would be great. Very Happy

You need to submit them to the forum named "Testing of New Work orders and Equipment" so that they can be tested to make sure that they run OK on a computer other than that of the converter or developer. You can use the NEHP-219-XX naming system, as you have not developed any work orders for that route previously. Please read the thread at http://www.vnerrforums.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17138 in that forum to make sure that you have the correct files in the zip file that you upload for testing. Very Happy

Thanks!!
