    You can do it, but not with the editor. You need a knowledge of TS, it’s files & how to open them, a very rudimentary knowledge of code etc.

    Afraid not.

    One technique is to use RWTools, and there is a tutorial with that although it’s not an ideal solution to be honest.

    Have you searched around for a patch for the IOW? There are patches out there that cover many non-DTG routes or routes not patches by the pack.

    You need to open .ap files by any zip file viewer.
    I use 7zip.
    Go to forums.uktrainsim.com and use the search function, IIRC there are post regarding it.

    I’ve never used that. I’ve always opened, and edited, .bin files using RWTools.

    Serz is just a File Converter
    Right Click on a Bin file and use "Open with SERZ"
    Serz opens and closes very quickly but it creates a *.xml file which you can use a viewer to look at and edit
    You then right click on the *.xml file and use "Open with SERZ" which converts the xml file back to a bin file.

    BUT - if you have not made a backup and you make an error in editing the xml file after you convert it back it won;t work.
    That is why it is easier using RW Tools as that makes a backup each time.

    AFAIK the TS editor is more complex than other train sims. There are tutorials on utube which will get you started.
