077M 0806 Leicester L.I.P. to Crewe T.M.D.

Today you’re in charge of a Class 37 ROG unit from Leicester to Crewe. You pick up the action at Nuneaton. The train is already around 3 hours late so don’t expect things to go too smoothly.
There is a 30mph TSR at Rugeley which you must adhere to and due to being extremely late, you’ll be stuck behind a LNWR service for most of the way.
On arrival to Crewe, you will be redirected to platform 8 after a short wait outside the station. I’ve done this for two reasons, firstly because the timetable does specify a pass on this platform (which makes no sense) but secondly it also gives the scenario somewhere to end.
If you can’t get Bodge IT Class 325, simply go into TS Tools and replace.

Routes(s): WCML Trent Valley & WCML Midlands and North West
Track Covered: Nuneaton – Crewe
Drive time: 1 hour 25 mins.

Known issues:
When travelling through the TSR, the speed limit will not change in the HUD. This is because I set the wrong speed while configuring the scenario and I can’t figure how to select the area with TSR to change it. However, all AI services do adhere to the correct speed limit.
The two signals as you approach Crewe will be stuck at red. You will need to tab through when the path looks clear – this is a route issue.
1U31 should be 8 car, but due to Crewe platform restrictions in the sim, I had to shorten it.
Some of the freight services are questionable, happy to take some guidance to change if they are wrong.
(but don’t let the above issues put you off haha)
