1M76 04:50 Reading – Liverpool Lime Street (2000)30th March 2023
Drive the Virgin XC 04:50 1M76 Reading – Liverpool Lime Street service from Birmingham to Liverpool. You’re in charge of 87026, instead of the usual 86, which will couple up and take the electric part of this journey and be stabled at Edge Hill. It’s a nice summer morning in 2000, and nothing can go wrong on the WCML.
Part 1: New Street – Stafford (50 minutes)
Part 2: Stafford – Lime Street (80 minutes)
Two scenarios for the ATS Midlands & Northwest route. Weather: Fair cloud/Showers. Don’t TAB any signals unless told to.
I made two separate scenarios mostly due to the amount of AI. You can do them individually or back to back. Feedback is much appreciated. Enjoy! 😊

PT1 Excellent, PT2 1G59 as you said above seems to get priority but the signals say otherwise & give you the all clear, after derailing several times due to points set against me I tried waiting just before the crossover after stafford for 1G59 to pass, sure enough the points set back for me & I make it to Stone but at Stone is a red that stays red & can`t be tabbed as the junction ahead is set against.
Fixed, I was missing 1 AI, 1A23 which you don`t meet until Kidsgrove! I fixed that then the pathing out of Stafford started behaving as expected!
Excellent scenario, possibly one of the best I have 🙂
Wow thank you! Glad you got it working.
cheers nice part 1,
issue part 2 i keep derailing departing stafford
Weird, never had that when testing, is it when switching to the fast lines? You could check the editor if you have priority over 1G59?
See my comment above, make sure you have all the AI.
A very enjoyable 2 part drive. Thank you.
Glad you enjoyed it
A lot of work has gone into both of those scenario’s. Part 2 especially!
Haven’t played this yet, but just wanted to say what a great screenshot you did there c:
Thanks! The missing link is very photogenic
