Hi Doc, can you help me troubleshoot something I've encountered on part 2? For some reason, I get a can't load for "AB PS Autorack SP LD". When I went to AB and downloaded both the autoracks, for some reason, the PS ones downloaded as "autorack", copying the BS ones as the named download file. I also had "AB SPINE CARS 53 TTAX 01C BNSF 01Tr", that seemed to change after I resinstalled the spine cars, but that SP one is stumping me.
I'm also wondering about the JT Common that's used for the Manchestor Stations in P3. Should I get that particular requirement? Or is the requirement in just the route itself, and that I don't really need the JT. Thanks

I've got a very stripped down TS1 install at the minute and can't check issues on my end, but my guesses for solutions are:
for the PS autorack SP LD, it's possible I screwed up and had this patch for the autoracks installed as well as the one I required http://railworksamerica.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=22861&hilit=abstudios&sid=19b8abd059bf300d9debcf7f620e4e4f#p260949, I remember someone having a similar issue in another scenario.
The only thing I used from the manchester stations route was the AI trams, which do not require any of the route's prereqs, so you should just be able to download the Manchester Stations to Huddersfield route and install the assets included within. The scenario should also work fine without the ai trams, they're just sitting as statics.
Hope that helps.
