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] 1Z13 1635 Corfe Castle – Worcester Shrub Hill “Cotswold-Purbeck Express”

Summary
On Saturday 28th September 2013, a First Great Western HST was utilised for this excursion for the Cotswold Line Promotion Group. Intended to run through to Swanage, last-minute gauging issues meant that the run was curtailed at Corfe Castle. You are in charge of the return working as far as Southampton Central.

The following are required to ensure that the scenario functions correctly :

* From Armstrong Powerhouse https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/ :

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/ :

– Class 220 / 221 / 222 Sound pack.
– Class 66 enhancement pack (and associated requirements) – Static consist only

Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 40 minutes. As per your schedule you are waiting outside Bournemouth for the 1745 CrossCountry service to Leeds to depart, and we will follow it through to Southampton. You have booked calls at Bournemouth and Southampton Central. This train will continue via the Reading avoider, Oxford, and the Cotswold line. This was meant to be the first visit of an HST to Swanage, but gauging issues meant that it could only run as far as Corfe Castle.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.
