The tracebacks point to a consist.xml file that is missing a “consistNumber” attribute on an entry.

Has anybody provided a copy of a bad consist.xml file? I’d like to see what’s going on internally with it.

Thanks!

The problem was introduced during some cleanup last November 24
https://github.com/JMRI/JMRI/pull/7643/commits/468b76958d72cf954fe0c1bad9914eba58abc736

I’ll fix it.

I think it’s going to hit a lot of people. Let’s consider a 4.18.1
