Activity Pack for North Coast Route 2.0 (Northwestern Pacific)

A pack of four freeware activities, created using SwitchList Generator -- but you don't need SwitchList Generator to run them.  Click here to download the zip file.

Installation instructions:

Hamilton-Norfolk Route Version 1.1 Update/Patch

This is a great freeware route created by David Phillips, available for free download on www.train-sim.com .  You should download and install that route first, then install this free Update/Patch.  The update was created in discussion with David.  Version 1.1 is an "activity developer's enhancement".  It adds names to most of the sidings & spurs on the route, and makes the "siding markers" longer so you can get "credit" in MSTS for making setouts on those spurs.  Activities written for Version 1 will still work with this new version.  Instructions for installing are included in the update, read "File_ID.diz" in the zip file for the instructions.  Get the update file here.
