'An error occurred while trying to load the QD Scenario'

This seems to be caused when an enhancement pack creates a folder structure and Blueprint for everything it supports,
not just what the player owns.

I assume the game sees the Blueprint and thinks that the item is present right up to the point when it tries to
add it to the route and then it throws the error.

I can only suggest looking in the RailWorks\Assets folder initially for GordonMack and Matrix packs.
If they contain an *.ap file then they will work okay otherwise drill down through the file structure.
If you find *.GeoPcDx files it should work if not and there are empty folders then consider moving the
product out of the Asset folder to somewhere safe.
