Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 70 minutes. You begin in Grantshouse Down Loop, where you have been looped to allow the first northbound East Coast HST to overtake. Please set-up and prepare to get underway when you get the signal. This train set out from Crewe in the early hours and has run via Carlisle and Hexham, before a leg-stretch stop at Newcastle. You took over there and are now driving this leg through to Edinburgh. Unusually, you have passenger pick-ups at Dunbar, Drem, Longniddry, and Musselburgh. Your maximum speed is 80mph.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.

Update Log :
* v1.1 01/06/20 – Amended due to occasional A.I. issues at Edinburgh.
