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] 1K54 1327 Crewe – Stafford”

Summary :
On a bitterly cold January morning prepare 37422 at Edge Hill depot, run ECS to Crewe and form a service to Stafford. Due to the cold weather, this set was late being released off maintenance and missed its booked path empty to Chester, where 1K54 starts. A class 150 has been found to start the service from Chester as far as Crewe, and the plan is that the loco-hauled set will take over from there.
Once prepared make sure the ETH supply is on to warm the coaches and depart for Crewe. You will connect out of the class 150 from Chester then work in passenger service to Stafford where the loco will need to run-round ready for the return working.
