The writing is on the wall for the Paxman Valenta engine as the MTU days are on the horizon. However for now, the old guard is still very much in charge. With snow on the ground and more falling, you will need to employ defensive driving in order to avoid excessive wheelslip and get this train to Swansea safely. Year : 2006.

Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 55 minutes. Having taken over this train at Cardiff Central you will drive through to Swansea. You have booked stops at Bridgend, Port Talbot, and Neath. There is snow on the ground and more is falling. Your task is to get this train to Swansea safely. There are p-way staff out on the ground ensuring points at important junctions keep working and don’t get clogged-up with snow, so keep your eyes peeled for these hardy guys.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.
