I suggest extending the name with something like "...with Black Rails" or similar

sorry to come up with this issue so late,
but I just wanted to drop a note about this:

This shortcut uses the forks number (45707) and appends
the ...c01. When doing this, it is perfectly right to keep the forks
in color 16 (as they are the "main part" here), and treat the rails
as the "addon".
However, this has two disadvantages:
(a) As you can see from this assembly, the forklift rails come
in different variants ...a and ...b.
Should we later decide to also create assembly shortcuts
for these, they would need to become ...c02, ...c03 and so on.
You would not be able to see from the shortcut number which rails
it uses.
(b) The 45707c01 assembly follows a different strategy than the
currently official smaller rails 3430c01 and 3430c02. There,
the assembly is numbered after the rail part, especially because
it has the same origin.

To make a long story short:
I would like to suggest that we go the same way here. This means:
- renumber this file to 4518bc01.dat
- swap the color roles of the rails and the forks, i.e.,
make the rails have color 16 and hardcode the forks color instead
- rename the part accordingly

What do you think about this?

I understand the problem.
First. There might be an other solution to the numbering problem. According to LDD this assembly has partnumber 46564. Could someone else confirm that?
Second. According to both Peeron and Bricklink, the only color of the rails is black (both 4518a and 4518b), and the forks (45707 and 4517) exists in three different shades of grey.
I want to renumber this file to 46564c01 and keep the rails black.
OK?

Confirmed.
"I want to renumber this file to 46564c01 and keep the rails black." Shouldn't it be called 46564 instead of 46564c01 - 46564 is already an assembly, and if we name it 46564c01 we loose direct LDD conversion.

Is there a good reason not to put the origin on the hinge point? this shortcut would be much more easy to use!
