It’s July 2006 and the 156 fleet at Scotrail is experiencing all kinds of problems, engineering suspect the extended period of hot weather isn’t helping. It’s peak season and the show must go on, with tourists flocking to the Highlands to experience what was once voted ‘the top rail journey in the world’.

The 158 fleet has been called upon to cover the technical issues with the 156’s and your task today is to drive from a full cold start at Glasgow Queen Street, all the way to Mallaig over 3 scenarios. In total some 5hr 15mins of challenging driving.

A detailed Driver Briefing Pack is included with plenty of information including a Real Time Trains style timetable and a list of requirements including hyperlinks.
