1Y42 10:44 Helensburgh Upper To Glasgow Queen Street19th April 2019
This scenario will take approximately 52 minutes to complete.
In the middle of heavy snowfall on a morning in the mid 80’s you will be taking control of 1Y42, a Class 37 (Armstrong Powerhouse) hauling the 06:03 service from Mallaig to Glasgow Queen Street.
You will commence this journey at Helensburgh Upper departing at 10:44, then calling at Dumbarton Central, and Dalmuir, before reaching Glasgow Queen Street where you are scheduled to arrive at 11:33.
The weather has been causing havoc with the signalling across the network causing many to display false Red aspects, so whenever you encounter a Red signal you should contact the dispatcher to verify if it is correct, and even if it is correct ensure you contact the dispatcher every 30 seconds until you have clearance.
Add to this, your wheels will be slipping like crazy so you will need to be very precise with your throttle and brake controls, you will be using sanding a lot throughout this journey!
This run has been based on accurate train times from the Scotrail timetable (9 Dec 2018 – 18 May 2019) and verified against Realtime Trains.
Due to being based on a current timetable and the more modern incarnation of the route network there are some services which wouldn’t specifically have run in this era, so some alterations to destinations has been carried out ie. services to Larkhall at present day are represented as terminating at Newton in the scenario, the Anniesland via Maryhill line was not reopened in the era of the scenario, from memory the services which ran on that line terminated at Maryhill, likewise with the Glasgow Queen Street to Alloa services, in the scenario era these services would have terminated at Stirling or Dunblane.
