1D15 1303 London Kings Cross to Leeds

2nd February 2023 11 By SilverCobra126

This scenario is for ATS’s ECML London Kings Cross to Leeds/York merged route and is based on the real world timetable data and running information for 25/08/2022 as provided by www.realtimetrains.co.uk

On a wet afternoon in late August you have been put in charge of LNER Azuma units 801103 and 801106 forming service 1D15, the 1303 departure from London Kings Cross to Leeds. You will be calling at Peterborough, Doncaster and Wakefield Westgate on your way to Leeds this afternoon. There have been reports of infrastructure damage on the fast line between Woolmer Green and Hitchin, and Network Rail engineers have been dispatched to investigate. We anticipate that there will be hefty delays while this investigation takes place. Also be aware that there is an 80mph emergency speed restriction in place on the fast line between Arlesey and Biggleswade. Do your best to recover any lost time as you make your way north to Leeds.

**UPDATE 07/03/2023: With the arrival of the Armstrong Powerhouse Sky & Weather Enhancement Pack V2.0 and the removal of V1.0 from their website, I’ve added a new version of the scenario that uses V2.0.
