Train Simulator: The Racetrack: Aurora - Chicago Route Add-On on Steam

Widely known as the “Windy City”, Chicago has now been brought to life in Train Simulator, in the famed route The Racetrack Aurora - Chicago.

Installation Instructions

Installation:

*If you live outside of the US, please do not pay attention to this first step and start at step 3.

Because of licensing restrictions, those of you in the US have to follow this first step. Unfortunately due to the way these GP38-2s were set up, the EJ&E skin is referencing a Burlington Northern logo and there is no way to remove this without altering the default Ex-BN GP38-2.

1.)In your TS2017 directory, go to Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/System/TexturesUSA.

2.) *Back up the "TexturesUSA" file to a safe spot, and then go into it. Inside the "Logos" file which is included in this download is a texture called "BNSFlogos.TgPcDx". Drop this texture into the "TexturesUSA" file, and overwrite when asked.

  • Back this file up so you can drop it back into Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/System and have BN/BNSF markings on your default GP38-2s the next time you run them.

(Normal installation instructions start here).

3.) Drop the included "Assets" folder into your TS2017 directory.

4.) Copy the "GP38-2_Ex-BN.GeoPcDx" file from...

...Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/RailVehicles/Diesel/GP38-2/Ex-BN/Engine

And paste it into...

...Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/RailVehicles/Diesel/GP38-2/EJE/Engine

...Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/RailVehicles/Diesel/GP38-2/Ex-BN/Cabview

And paste it into...

...Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/RailVehicles/Diesel/GP38-2/EJE/Cabview

6.) Copy the "Bogies", "Drivers", "Particles", "CommonScripts", "Lights", "PreLoad", and "Simulation" files from...

...Assets/Barnez/BNSFChicago/RailVehicles/Diesel/GP38-2/Ex-BN/
