    You can download free un-zipping tools, which would allow you to access them.

    You don't need Mediafire, it's a file host from where you download the files. For unzipping, 7-Zip is excellent and free.

    They're not .RWP files are they?

    If so, you'll need to run the "utilities" program in your Railworks directory.

    Right, you need to find your Railworks directory....

    If you've got the Steam version:-

    On the Steam page, go to where it says "Train Simulator" at the top left hand side
    Right click and choose "PROPERTIES" - should be at the bottom
    Then click the LOCAL FILES Tab
    Click the button/tab that says BROWSE LOCAL FILES

    This should open up your Train Simulator Directory...

    Scroll down to near the bottom, and you will find a file called UTILITIES*.
    Double click on it to run it
    Click on the PACKAGE MANAGER Tab and then the INSTALL Button

    Choose the .RWP file you want to install - I suggest making a directory on your desktop and putting all your .RWP files in there.
    Click OPEN.

    Hopefully this will install the .RWP file for you..


    *Might be worth making a Shortcut to this file for your Desktop.


    Hope this helps!!

    You may have to go into the folders and copy the shape files (.GeoPcDx) into the folders with the reskins in them. The readme that should have been included with the downloads of the reskin will tell you where these are.

    Thats unusual, @superalbs is usually very good with those sort of things. Oh well, I've copied the installation instructions for the VTEC HST here:

    I can't find a superalbs class 91 on his website though, so I can't help there I'm afraid.
