- 3.2 (released June 2005)
This version has a number of additional facilities, and a number of
errors have been corrected. See the Whatsnew.txt file for details.
Train Store assists in storing MSTS Routes, activities and consists
efficiently, without requiring changes to the MSTS configuration, and
without making additional copies of files or installations of MSTS.
Individual Routes and or Activities can be 'In Use' to MSTS, whilst
the remainder of your MSTS configuration is 'In Store' and unavailable
This improves MSTS start-up and closedown times dramatically. It also
removes the problem of 'too many consists'. Changing between Routes and
Activities is very quick. Combinations of Routes and Activities (or
individual Routes or Activities) can be saved as 'Scenarios'.
There is a facility to include additional 'Explore Mode Consists' and
'Explore Mode Paths' as part of the definition of a Route, so that the
facilities can be used with or without Activities.
The software allows the user to Explore in MSTS whilst using Loose
Stock and/or AI Traffic from an Activity.
A simple Information and Where Used analysis facility is included for
Routes Activities and Consists, together with a rudimentary print
facility. Stock Items or Consists with errors can be highlighted and
selected for action.
The software is very easy to use, displaying a 'tree' of Routes and
Activities. Selection of a required configuration can be completed in 3
to 4 mouse clicks, including launching MSTS. Most of the facilities have
options which can be set by the user.
An 'Easy' user interface is included that allows you to choose
individual Activities, or Explore Mode Consists and start MSTS
An integrated viewer allows the user to see individual stock items
and complete consists.
Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German Polish and Spanish versions of
the software are available now.
Installation instructions are contained in the 'Getting Started.PDF
file, and full operating information is included within the
Additional sets of icons for customising created by Duncan Harris are
included in the package. They can be found in the file TS_icons001.zip.
