would it be possible for you to try and get ap weather on this route?

Those files cannot be added to this route...re-distribution of those files is illegal.
They are the sole property of Armstrong Powerhouse.
However, should you OWN the Armstrong Powerhouse Sky and Weather pack...documentation is included in the readme file for the user to display the AP weather on routes other than the British ones it applies to when installing.

Alex - you cannot include it the weather pack files themselves.

A route builder can make their route point to the AP Sky & Weather Expansion Pack, but I think this would require all users of that route to have the AP expansion installed.

So, I changed the Ap ToD file Summer.bin to Default.bin and swapped it for the existing one in the ToD folder Saluda, it worked

Since there is only a Default.bin file in the ToD folder, depending on the season, you have to change and insert the correspondingly changed AP file into Default.bin.
A bit complicated, but it works.
