ÿþRenumber of MLT AC4400CW #9505 into classmate #8525

Maple Leaf Tracks Rogers Pass Route is required for engine and crew shape files. 

My thanks to Scott M. Miller for the freight animation glass textures (his readme in file).


Copy the shape files RP_CP9505.s and AC44_Loco_crew.s from the RP_CP9505 folder on your hard drive to the folder created by unzipping this download and rename the engine shape file to RP_CP8525.s move the folder to your MSTS TRAINS\TRAINSET directory, move the .con file to the TRAINS\CONSISTS directory and you should then be able to find the engine within the sim and run it.

In the folder you will find two sub folders named Crew and Glass. each contains an engine file. If you wish the engine to have a crew then copy and paste the .eng file from the crew folder to the main folder allowing it to over write the existing file, if you prefer glass then do the same with the .eng file from the Glass folder. NOTE: only copy and paste the .eng files do not move them as if you do you will lose the ability to change back. As downloaded the engine is set up to have glass,the AI engine will always have glass.

A consist is included to get you up and running.

I have  applied  the front  coupler fix to the engine files and increased the derail buffer force as well as 

raising the sd file height for ground clearence to 0.95 (these all help to eliminate bouncing and give a better ride over points) if you do not wish for these mods they are easily reversed by copying back the default values from the CP #9505 engine file.

Renumber by Bernard Grant (burgerburn)

All of the engine files have now been updated with the new coupler breaking values, adheasion & Friction values

from the Rogers Pass update, the coupler breakage figure has been incorporated into the front coupler fix.
