w/o going into all the details, I ran about 5 paper sessions this afternoon in search of what triggered the really wacko Loads / Empties ratio I posted about in a prior topic. I found that ProTrak Ver. 352 solved the wacko problem. With that version I ran 4 paper sessions and at the end of the sessions my L / E ratios were 90/10, 72/28, 81/19 and 95/5. These may seem high to some users, but are what I've seen on the SVL for years.   wrt my prior posting this afternoon I'd really like to repeat my experiment with Ver. 353.  I started testing with Ver. 355 and 354 and continued to get weird / wacko L / E ratios sometimes as low as 26/74.

Jim B maybe dropping back this far will help your current frustrating problem, and Bob B maybe going this far back will help your OV traffic problem PLEASE if you guys experiment with Ver. 352 and find it resolves your problems please post your findings here.

Using Andy's info, on the 5 paper session I had 30 cars lost, relocated to GSM yard.

Program read the cars came from NCR1. Checked the train, it showed 30 cars in the train. Not sure where the cars came from.

Still testing on home rr, also check the max car order in the lower left hand corner of the Car Order. I didn't change a couple and max was set at 1. Rough getting 10 cars delivered on the Car Order.
