This function enables you to create thumbnails for use in Conbuilder (or Route Riter’s own Consist Editor) enablinmg you to get a screenshot of the model you are selecting. You will require Route_Riter 6.3.52 or higher!

Let’s Get Started

  1. Open Route_Riter.Right-click on the CON button (arrow #1) in image below:
    Left-click on the E/W button (arrow #2) in image below:

2. Click on the “List Filtered Files” button (arrow #3 above):

3. After a few seconds of frantic activity, you will see a screen that looks something like this below: click on the arrowed button “Select All”:

4. After a few seconds, all the files have been selected. Click on the arrowed button “Make thumbnails of .ENG and .WAG files” (see image below).

Route_Riter will now start making thumbnails of each model naming them the same as its parent ENG or WAG file, taking 2-4 seconds per model as Shape Viewer briefly flashes up on the screen creating each image.

If there is a FreightAnimation tag in the ENG or WAG file, it will be added to the thumbnail view as well:

tn_cb_7.jpg - 80kb

You will know when it’s finished because SV will stop flashing images on the screen and the “total Number of Selected Files” is zero.

5. If Route_Riter encounters an existing JPG, it will stop and ask you what to do……….
