I've had this problem as well, though it wasn't because I fooled around or anything. In fact for me it was the other way around, I used to have lots of weird graphic glitches (as shown here) and said rails plopping problem, which both increased as the plugins folder grew larger up untill the point it became unbearable. For me the solution was to change some settings on the Nvidea graphics card after which I experienced no more glitches or any delays while handling rails. So it seems be a graphics related issue indeed. Maybe some of the settings on your graphics card were changed in the process and though you've reinstalled SC4, those are still out of whack.
I might be wrong, as i don't have a big knowledge on the matter, but for my it seems that your entire plugin folder got corrupted along the first files you modified ( the files that caused the problem)
your nvidia card comes with a control center, try to locate it either in the start-programs or where it is installed (c:\ program files\nvidia corporation by default) and here you can create dedicated profiles for applicationsso, the rail jam is not a matter of the nam itself, but a bug caused by visuals? oh boy...
Fred, I had no idea what I was doing either Go to 'Manage 3D settings" and select the second tab 'program settings'. You'll probably first need to click add, browse and select the .exe file. Then fool around a bit (not too much though ). After some trial-and-error these settings turned out to work for me. Don't ask why, it just did. As for the graphics card seemingly causing transit related issues; my hunch is somehow the rail texture and specifically all the sleepers weren't rendered properly. Or maybe they were rendered in a too elaborated manner which caused the delay. Either way I can confirm it has nothing whatsoever to do with the NAM.
...If I could give you +1 rep I would right now. I had been having almost the same type of issues for months with the RTMT stations always taking forever to plop or for that menu item to close when hitting escape(A habit I got into when CTD's were common with GLR stations), and adjusting my graphics cards to the settings you posted, fixed that issue big time.

Well well, guess my hunch about rail textures being the culprit seems to have been just wild and uninformed speculation Anyhow, glad it fixed your problem too mike3775 and thanks for the rep It's rather curious though graphics can cause such issues and I wonder how many players are out there with similar issues but take it for granted, thinking it's an transit artefact or something, which it is not, obviously. And I really hope you can get things running smoothly again as well Fred, as I know from experience it kinda ruins gameplay.
