Description
A shipment of coal has got stuck at South Fork Yard due to bad weather. Dispatch is sending you out from Johnstown to pick up the coal cars and bring them back to Johnstown, from here another train can take them to their destination at Pittsburgh later today.
About 60 minutes long, medium difficulty.

Great scenario! Not too long. Enough switching to keep it interesting and lets you explore parts of the Horseshoe Curve map the default scenarios don't let you see.

Loads up fine for me but when trying to connect to the cars on track 6 after dropping of cabbose on track 4; it derails. Did as slow as possible but same result.

I did try Westbound Coal Empties. It worked great, and a good scenario. So, I just tried South Fork Hoppers again (new download and everything). It comes up with the black screen (edit or exit). It says I am missing about six yard markers same as before. I think I'll just give it up. Thanks for trying to help.

Marc, Thanks for the kind comment, I'm glad you liked this run.

@pthingstad, I must admit I'm at a loss about this error, for now I have no more theories that I could offer. :-( Have you by any chance tried my other recent PRR scenario, Westbound Coal Empties? It's available here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=194985948 and it requires the same DLC as this scenario.

Michael - a very fun scenario. A very heavy load that's difficult to stop. I didn't go over yard speed all the way back to Johnstown for fear of not being able to slow down before the yard.
Well done, thanks,
Marc

I am sorry to keep bothering you. I was missing the PRR Asset Pack from the store. I am new to this, but these items did not show up in the "Required Assets" screen. they only showed up in the little black screen (Edit or Exit).I have added that package.
I then cleared the cache, and "Verified Cache" I then deleted and reloaded the scenario. Now I am missing track markers (assume destinations). What to do now?

Hi, I don't know if Norton could cause this, but I doubt that anti virus software takes quite so much processing power. If deleting and redownloading the scenario doesn't work you could also try the "verify cache" routine, it'll find and correct any missing or changed files in all content downloaded from Steam. Its only downside (that I know of) is that you'd loose any 3rd party mods to the default content if you have any of those (like sound updates etc.)

Hi, I have changed nothing. No assets are shown as missing. I will try to download again. I do run Norton 360. Could that be a problem. I also use this machine for business, there fore the virus protection.

Hi, do you have all the needed DLC packs installed? Also, in case you've edited the scenario with RW_Tools, please try and undo your changes (or redownload the scenario from Steam). I've seen "missing route marker" error messages in the past when accidentally changing rail vehicle numbers in rolling stock when swapping rail vehicles with RW_Tools.

For whatever reason, The scenario would not run. It showed several rout markers were mising. I have had trouble with other scenarios that would not load because of missing assets. Any help would be appreciated.
