Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 60 minutes. This loco and stock ran overnight to Paignton as the 23.30 Fridays-only from Manchester Piccadilly, the 47 working throughout. Having dropped off holidaymakers along the coast at the start of their holidays, it is now time to set-off for Edinburgh collecting those whose holidays are coming to an end. A class 86 will replace the 47 at Birmingham New Street. Later today, 47709 will be heading for the south coast with a round trip from Birmingham to Bournemouth and return to Wolverhampton. You begin in Goodrington Carriage Sidings where the loco has run-round its train. You are booked to call at Torquay, Newton Abbot, Teignmouth, Dawlish, Dawlish Warren, and Exeter St.David’s. You will be relieved in Exeter. As these trains are geared towards holidaymakers, the station dwells are extended to allow time for luggage to be loaded.
