Greetings gents,

Just one quick question here -

I downloaded the DRGW SD40T-2 #5353 and unzipped it to see if I wanted to run it. I can't get it to show in Shape File Viewer - all I get is a blank screen.

Anybody know why?

#5353 is a repaint of the TA SD40-2, which had an typographical error in the shape file. the shape file is uncompressed, so it can be opened with a unicode text editor. use the editor's 'Find' function to find this section:

anim_node WIPERBLADELEFT1 (
controllers ( 2
tcb_rot ( 5
tcb_key ( 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 )
tcb_key ( 1 0 0 0.382683 0.92388 0 0 0 0 0 )
tcb_key ( 2 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 )
tcb_key ( 3 0 0 0.382683 0.92388 0 0 0 0 0 )
tcb_key ( 4 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 )\

the problem is the extra backslash at the end of the last line. remove it, and the problem will go away.

tcb_key ( 4 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 ) <--- this is good smile.gif

Thanks, guys!

I was't aware this loco was a repaint of the default unit. I do remember that extra slash, now that you mention it. I've removed it from quite a few files in the past.

Thanks for the help -
