When working with add-ons for Microsoft Train Simulator, you will need to become familiar with the Train Simulator directory on your computer's hard drive - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator or on a 64bit machine: C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator

all locomotives and rolling stock are located in your TRAINSET folder(inside the TRAINS folder)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Once you receive the E-mail containing the link to download your file, click on the link, and then click to save the download to a location on your computer's hard drive. You will have at least 24 hours to down-load your file. We will send another link if needed. You can then unzip the file and look for the ReadMe for further instructions. Make sure your E-mail's security options are turned off. A link in an E-mail is sometimes detected by your email service and either sent to a SPAM folder, or the link is hidden or deactiviated. In this case, you won't be able to click the link to begin the down-load process.

Also, if the link does not appear to be 'clickable' inside your email, you can copy and paste the link into your browser window.

Diesels West locomotive sets for Train Simulator® are a digital 'down-load product'.

If you require a CD for your order click here

If you are using a 'dial-up', or you have a slow internet connection, you may need to try your download several times before having success. A slow connection or busy network can have more FTP errors occurring. Sometimes when a link is first clicked, it will appear to down-load almost instantly. Close the download window, and start over when that happens. When your download is successful, the size of the ZIP file will be large (Megabytes...not Kilobytes). If an FTP (file transfer protocol) error occurrs during the down-load process, your file size will probably be in the KB range, and Windows will identify it as an invalid or corrupt file. An invalid file is an incomplete file and you won't be able to unzip it. Down-load it again if this occurs. When down-loading files from the internet, you may need to disable any security software. This includes email filters preventing links to be visible inside emails.

Should you be unable to successfully down-load from the internet, you can also purchase a CD.

Following the download process, locate your download and unzip the file(if necessary)and click on the installer icon to install. The installer will install to the MSTS default location on your computer's hard drive C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator\TRAINS\TRAINSETor on a 64bit machine:
C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Games\Train Simulator\TRAINS\TRAINSET

ADDING A NEW LOCOMOTIVE TO TRAIN SIMULATOR: image tutorial

 

First, you will need to build a new consist (or alter an existing one), by opening your activity editor. It can be found by clicking your 'Start' button (on your desktop) and locating Microsoft Games>Train Simulator>Train Simulator Editor & Tools

Now click to open the activity editor. Open the route folder you want(i.e. "USA1") and then go into the 'Activities' folder and click any activity listed. Now click the 'Edit' button next to 'Player service' and you will see the consist list. You can change the locomotives in an existing consist, or make a new one. Make sure you don't use 'TU' locomotives as lead units, when adding our locomotives.

If you are altering an existing activity, make sure you don't change the train's overall length. A different train length can cause the activity's time table and starting point to be incorrect, which can trigger error messages. It may be necessary to click 'recalculate everything' in the activity editor before you save and exit. You can change traffic trains too, but be mindful of the traffic train's overall length. Don't put a long traffic train on a short siding, etc.

Specific directions for installation are available with every download as a 'Readme' file. Follow these directions carefully.
