*Updated* 1M61 1039 Hereford to Birmingham New Street

28th June 2019 Off By JetWash


– Briefing Pack updated to include missed requirements (with Hyperlinks)
– The Class 153’s have been updated to include the correct West Midlands Trains ex-London Midland livery
– An alternative version of the scenario using the actual consist from that day, a 2 car C170 headed by a C153 is now included

On 19th June 2019 South Africa played New Zealand in the Cricket World Cup at Edgbaston. I went to the game but nearly missed the start due to delays and cancellations on the GWR. The second part of the journey was to catch this service (1M61) from Worcester Foregate Street into New Street, and that service is recreated in full in this scenario for the excellent XC Route (extended). I’ve done my level best to make the timetable and the AI exactly as it was that day using RealTimeTrains (except that it’s running on time!). There are two freight services that are reversed just to add a bit of variety.

Included is a driver brief with the RTT timetable from that day and a list of requirements with hyperlinks. This is what you’ll need though….
