Hi, and thank you for downloading this scenario.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 1A57 1410 Liverpool Lime St – London Euston”. Please note that when the scenario starts, you may receive an error message – I haven’t been able to ascertain what this refers to, and it appears to have no bearing on how the scenario runs. Please press ‘F2’, then cancel, and the scenario should run fine.

On a drizzly Sunday in July 1999 you will be driving an afternoon southbound departure from Liverpool as far as Crewe, with 87014 “Iron Duke” providing the power.
You will be calling at Runcorn and Crewe. Engineering work is taking place on the Fast lines between Edge Hill and Allerton, so we shall be using the Slow line. The set you will be driving formed the 0800 from Euston earlier today and is one of very few workings to Liverpool booked for a mark 2 push-pull set, which restricts your maximum speed to 100mph. These mostly work Wolverhampton / Birmingham and Holyhead services, with limited workings to
Lancaster, Preston and Glasgow, as well as this Liverpool working.
