Track can be removed from a world file but remain in the track database. To remove this orphaned track using Route Editor transform the orphaned track in the track database to track that can be selected and deleted.
After the orphan track has been converted to normal track.
Errors in the track database prevent this route from being loaded in Activity Editor. After these errors have been repaired the route can be loaded.
Use TsUtils with Route Riter to identify these errors.
errors —> ‘TrJunctionNode(426)’: UiD-Number (-11583,14425,243) does NOT refer to Track/Road (Static)! ‘TrJunctionNode(426)’: Connection between Shape-Id and UiD is not available! ‘TrackNode(426)-TrPin(0)’: ‘0-Reference’ of the Node-Definition may cause error(s). ‘TrackNode(426)-TrPin(1)’: ‘0-Reference’ of the Node-Definition may cause error(s). ‘TrackNode(426)-TrPin(2)’: ‘0-Reference’ of the Node-Definition may cause error(s).
To correct this error open the track database, CNW-Harvard.tdb, in a text editor. Delete track node 426. Since there cannot be gaps in track nodes renumber the last track node 3184 to 426, and adjust the two references to this node and decrement the track node counter.
When a shape file has a matrix element without a name Open Rails will not show that shape. It will include a message in the log like the following:
Warning: System.IO.FileLoadException: d:\ts glacier-express 2\trains\trainset\x4900_auvergne\xrabauvergne.s d:\ts glacier-express 2\trains\trainset\x4900_auvergne\ —> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Orts.Viewer3D.SharedShape.LoadContent() in E:\Documents\Coding\Jenkins\jobs\Open Rails Stable\workspace\Source\RunActivity\Viewer3D\Shapes.cs:line 1459
The wagon shape between the two engines is not shown in Open Rails
Microsoft Train Simulator (MSTS) will show the shape but the element will not animate.
