1S91 09.45 Blackpool North – Stranraer (1984)

Hi, and thank you for downloading this 35 minute scenario for the Northern Lines route from On-Track Simulation.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 1S91 0945 Blackpool North – Stranraer”

On Saturdays in the Summer months, the stock off the night boat train to Stranraer was utilised to form an 01.30 Stranraer to Blackpool North service, returning at 09.45. This was timed well for the changeover of bed and breakfast accommodation for those on their week’s holiday. On a fine morning, drive the return working as far as Preston. At Preston AC power will take over for the journey to Carlisle, where another diesel will take over for the run to Stranraer. Year: 1984.

Please note, although 40150 was dual-braked and this stock was vacuum-braked, a limitation within the simulation means that you shall be running as an air-braked service.
