Hi, and thank you for downloading this 65 minute scenario for the Railways of Devon 1985 route by On-Track Simulation and Vulcan Productions.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 1M37 0815 Paignton – Manchester Piccadilly”

It’s the first Saturday of the Summer timetable and you are in charge of this morning departure from Paignton as far as Exeter. You have loco 50049 “Defiance” and a rake of West Coast Main Line Pullman stock on this service. Loco allocations are correct as far as possible for this date, 16th May 1987. You call at all stations to Dawlish Warren, then non-stop to Exeter St. David’s where you will be relieved.

The West Coast Main Line Pullman sets are booked to work several holiday services on Summer weekends. This rake worked the 2355 Fridays-only overnight service from Manchester to Paignton and is now heading back. As it is changeover day at the hotels and B&Bs this train will be picking up returning holidaymakers.

*Please note, due to an issue with the simulator you will need to press ‘TAB’ to pass three signals in a row at Newton Abbot – one before the platform, one half way along, and one at the end – these can all be treated as showing clear.
