IMPORTANT: Many files have been updated since the Route was last released. Please visit the Updates page where you can find out what has been updated.

If you previously downloaded the Route, please stop and read this... If you have made any changes to the Route that you previously downloaded, then be sure to save any modifications you may have made to that version. Move that Siskiyou folder from your ROUTES folder to a different location. Then install this version. Once you've done that you can copy things like activities, etc., that you may have created over to this new Route's folders.

If this is your first time downloading the Route... After you download and install the Route you will likely want to download ALL of the wagons and consists. You'll find them on the Downloads page. While you're doing that you may want to download such things as more engines, activities, documentation, and perhaps even items from the Tools-N-Tips page.

As you browse around the site you'll find even more things available that I haven't mentioned. Once you start running the Route you might consider making some screen captures of happenings along the Route and then forward the images to us for inclusion on our Trackside Pics page. Please include your real name if you want me to credit you with your submission. If you run into any kind of difficulty. or if you have questions about the Route I'm here to help... just drop me a note.

I hope you'll enjoy the Route and all that's offered. Don't forget that I'm always looking for anyone willing to volunteer to do work on the Route.

WARNING! Read this now!... If this is the first time you've installed the Siskiyou Route, the installer will overwrite your existing "tsection.dat" file that exists in your "Train Simulator/Global" folder. The installer will install tsection.dat... Build 52. If your tsection.dat file is earlier than Build 52 you may want to let the installer overwrite your existing file.
