How To: Add New Locos to Your Needs List

Hellfire Version 3.3.8 includes three Inverness Class 08s which will not appear as required in your needs list unless you manually add them.

Answer Yes to the above question, and you should get the following...

Make sure you answer Yes to this second question, and the three new Class 08s will appear as required on your needs list.  Note that this differs from the previous post on editing Needs Lists.
