Errors I have on this route is my train never want's to load in Oroville yard or south of it.

If you are trying to load with starting point at Orville Yard and destination Camp Rogers with a long consist you will run into a problem. That starting point has the ENG facing into the pit of the turntable. The ACT that uses that path starts with a consist of a single GP35 that backs out of the Engine Service area and goes after the wagons it has to deliver. So starting at the Starting Point titled "Orville Yard" one must consider the length of the consist used as not all consist can use that starting point.

If you want to start in the Orville Yard with any consist of your choosing the use the Path that has the destination of Portola Yard.

Which file are you referring to Marc? I don't find a .....\trains\trainset\CarStrings\String_Mix_15.wag in my WP3 mini install

That's not one of our files - "Carstrings" should be the first clue - everything we do is 3DTrains....

Nevertheless, I thought we were looking for GX-LPBoxString06.wag?
