Hi there,

yesterday I accidentally deleted a rail track.

I tried to undelete it in Potlatch how described in the help, but it did not work.

Then I downloaded the OSMchange XML from the history, renamed it to *.osm and tried to open it in JOSM but got the error message "Line 4 Row 133 zero".

Can anyone help me with this?

I suspect you are using Potlatch 2 and the instructions you read are for Potlatch 1. To use Potlatch 1 you can still currently hover your mouse over the Edit button and select it from the list of editor choices. I don't believe there is currently any way to undelete ways in Potlatch 2.

With regards downloading OSM change XMLs and loading them in JOSM, there is a revert plugin which makes this much easier and less prone to error.

Thanx EdLoach, using Potlatch 1 did it, I could revert my deletion of the tracks and the trains can roll again :-)

First I downloaded the revert plugin for JOSM but I had no idea how to install it and also couldn't find a description.

There are some methods to undelete single objects rather than reverting whole changesets at Undoing_Deletions

Maybe with the JOSM plugin described there it can be done easily.
