Hi, and thank you for downloading this 105 minute scenario for the West Coast Main Line South route by DTG.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario, and is named “[MJC] 1G20 0915 Euston – Birmingham New Street”.

On a fine Summer morning you are in charge of a northbound ‘EBW’ service to Birmingham, which you will drive throughout. You will call at Watford Junction, Coventry, Birmingham International, and Birmingham New Street. As this train contains mark 2 stock, maximum speed is 100mph.
In the latter days of Intercity the frequent services between London and the West Midlands were branded as “Shuttle”. They are commonly known as the ‘EBW’ trains (Euston – Birmingham – Wolverhampton). Although all trains are booked for class 87s, class 86s are also frequently seen. Year: 1998
