What do the Numbers in Parenthesis Mean after the Consist Name?

Such as UP Z East (2) (3) (4) ect.

UP Z West (2) (3) (4) ect and so on.

Are there several variations of Each Consist or What?

Thankyou,

DaveKfromUP

Hi Dave,

On the same line? None that I can find here have these. Are the numbers in your files encapsulated within the parenthesis of the consist name?

Cheers!
Marc

Hi Marc,

No they aren't Encapsulated with the Consist Name.

In my Trainsim/ Cheyenne/ Activities Folder they are listed as UP 4594 East.act.

But in the Services Folder they do show up Like This:  UP 4594 East srv. Then UP 4594 East AI.srv then UP 4594 East AI (2) srv, AI (3) srv and so on.

Then in the Conbuilder Consist File they will show up as follows: UP Z east.con then there will be UP Z east (2).con, (3).con and so on.

Could they be Duplicates or could there be something that caused Conbuilder to Read them that way?

Or Maybe it was something I Goofed up on when I Installed the Route. Maybe I did something when I Installed the Route and Duplicated them.

Thank you,

DaveKfromUP

I dunno, Dave. I haven't supplied any activities with the route, so you might want to contact the original author.

Cheers!

Hi Marc,

I'm no expert but I Think I know what happened.

The Activitie Consists are Copy & Paste from the Download to Trainsim.

I think that Trainsim Read the Various Consists as an AI Consist  and not as A Standard Consist. Since the Various Consists are used in the  Activities Various Times Trainsim Assigned them a Sequence Number AI, AI (2), AI (3) ect. However they are Consists not AI Consists.

I Deleted the Excess Consists and Services so I'll see how they work.

Hi Dave,

 

The problem was caused by your copy method.

UP Z east.com exists in at least 5 of the activities.

Your copy method sees a file of the same name and copies it with a number at the end.

 

My copy method overwrites the file, hence no extra files.

Hi Derek,

That's what I Started Thinking so I Just Deleted the Extra Files and went back to the original Files.

For some Reason My Computer was Seeing them as AI Trains and they're not. Since they're are No AI Trains.

Thankyou,
