Mike,
You have hosed up the train files?
You should may be start over and delete the ALP-46 trains you have already installed,
download a fresh copy of FanRailer's latest ALP-46, use 7ZIP to extract the RAR file,
then move those extracted folders under the main folder \openBVE\Train\, without altering or rearranging.

Okay, as suggested, I deleted the ALP-46 directory and all files and subdirectories in it.

I have the following installation files:

Amtrak ALP-46 Expansion Pack V1.0.rar
ALP-46 Train Pack V1.0.7z
NJT ALP-46 Train Pack (Complete Exteriors) V1.0.rar
NJT ALP-46A Pack V1.0.rar

In what order should I install them?

Each of those are complete trains, so do NOT overwrite one with another!
The install order does not matter, just do not overwrite one with another.
I would note the RAR upload dates and keep only the latest version of each consist, for example keep one NJT and one Amtrak.

It doesn't matter. All of the .rar files are made to be independent of each other. Keep in mind the file hosted on the BVE station site is only the ALP-46 (just the NJT version). On my mediafire site are the other three versions (the alp-46 for amtrak, the alp-46a for amtrak, and the alp-46a for njt).

ie, the two files you stated above ("ALP-46 Train Pack V1.0.7z" and "NJT ALP-46 Train Pack (Complete Exteriors) V1.0.rar")
are the same thing.

Once again, to install, simply open up the .rar file, and drag the file folder into your trains directory.

(openBVE/trains/)

And as stated before, no overwriting should be necessary if you've already deleted the previous files from your directory.

I found what is happening but not why it is happening. The extract is failing somehow and putting everything in one directory. So I am playing "games" with the extract to get it to work. I am extracting to a temp directory and moving it under trains.

Thanks for your help. I know this is going worth it when I finally get it to work!

BEAUTIFUL! I Love it. Great job.

I noticed the gauges are not working. Is that me or is that the next release?

Thanks for the help.

I am glad you got it to work. Yes, the ALP panel and the Comet I Cab panel are, for this release, static. I am still waiting on someone to step up and offer to animate them for me. Either that, or eventually, I'm going to take the time out of my busy schedule and learn how to do it myself.
