Tender Fix for D&RGW K-36 and K-37 Locomotives.

Somehow an extra bracket (parenthesis open) got inserted into the wagon files for the tenders of K-36s 484, 487 and 489 and K-37s 491 and 492. The effect of this bracket is to disable the brakes on these cars.

While this had little or no effect with MSTS, we now have the ability in ORTS to change from running one train or locomotive to running another train or locomotive that is not connected to our original train. Think: Change from road engine on the main to a helper on a siding. But in order to make the swap, all locomotives and cars in the operating train must be zero MPH (KPH). A car without brakes never really stops moving so the attempt to swap with brakeless tenders always fails.

The attached wagon files have been corrected and will fix this error. Simply copy the TRAINS folder to your simulator folder and accept the overwrites.

Now you should be able to jump from one cab to another without errors. Just be sure to set all brakes.
