Hi, and thank you for downloading this scenario.

To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 1V75 0520 Holyhead – Cardiff Central”

Following privatisation, Wales & West operated one train per day each way between Holyhead and Cardiff Central. The unit stabled overnight in Holyhead, and the services were crewed by North Western Trains (later First North Western) traincrews on the norht Wales Coast. Today you are driving 158867 which carries a prototype for a new Wales & West livery, which ultimately was not adopted.

The following are required to ensure that the scenario functions correctly :
* From Armstrong Powerhouse https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/ :
– Class 158 Cummins and Perkins enhancement packs (and associated requirements)
– Class 156 pack.
– Class 150/1 enhancement pack (and associated requirements)
– Class 37 pack volume 1
– Mark 2A – 2C coach pack

* From STEAM :
– North Wales Coastal route add-on (original Llandudno to Crewe) https://store.steampowered.com/app/621928/Train_Simulator_North_Wales_Coastal_Crewe__Llandudno_Route_AddOn/

* From Major Wales Design https://www.major.wales/reskins/WB :
– Wales & West class 158 experimental livery

* From Just Trains
– Seacow wagon pack (also available as part of the Class 60 advanced + freight wagons bundle) : https://www.justtrains.net/product/ygb-seacow-pluspak

Optional Requirements
The following are NOT required to ensure that the scenario functions correctly, however they will add to the immersion.

* From Armstrong Powerhouse https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/ :
– Sky and Weather enhancement pack.

Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 85 minutes. Having taken over this train at Llandudno Jn you will drive as far as Crewe. It’s a gloriously crisp morning on the coast. There is a ballast train booked in front of yours. Unfortunately it has had to be stopped at Mostyn as the tail lamp has failed. The driver is able to replace it and continue but you will likely be delayed. There is recovery time in the schedule however, and as the ballast train was running early you should be back on time at Chester.

Big shout out to Major Wales for creating this reskin as it rekindles happy memories from my early railway career.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.
