I think this is the first scenario I’ve made on one of Backdated TrainSim’s routes.

It’s a slightly overcast morning in the south of England. You’ll be joining the 12-car Class 375 consist at Tonbridge on its way to Hastings. After letting passengers board, you’ll drive the train down to Hastings. The last unit (375712) will be dropped off at Tunbridge Wells, leaving units 375704 and 375710 to continue on to Hastings.

This line is unusual because of the numerous narrow tunnels, which result in short single-track sections on an otherwise double-track line.

Some trains on this line skip most of the stations, but your service will stop at all stations over the 33 mile route:

High Brooms
Tunbridge Wells
Frant
Wadhurst
Stonegate
Etchingham
Robertsbridge
Battle
Crowhurst
West St. Leonards
St. Leonards Warrior Square
Hastings

Duration – 72 minutes
Difficulty Level – Medium

The requirements for this scenario are listed below:

Chatham Mainline – London to Gillingham
Class 170 DMU
London to Brighton
Southeastern Class 375 Dark Blue Livery Pack (Steam Marketplace)
Southeastern Class 465

(Backdated TrainSim)
The 1066 Line

(DP Simulation)
Class 465/2 and 465/9 SET Blue Stripe

(Armstrong Powerhouse)
Class 168/170/171 Enhancement Pack
Class 375/377 Sound Pack (optional, though now discontinued)
Class 365/465/466 (Met-Cam) Sound Pack (optional)

I did not have AP’s 375/377 Enhancement Pack at the time of uploading. As such, I used the default liveries from the Chatham Mainline and London to Brighton routes, plus that marketplace livery pack.

And with that being said, thank you for downloading, good luck and happy driving!
