Hi, and thank you for downloading this 55 minute scenario for the Woodhead Electric in BR Blue route.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 1Z13 1715 Wadsley Bridge – Liverpool Lime Street ‘Foot-ex’”

Summary
The football special, or ‘Foot-ex’, was a major feature of railway operations under BR. They were also a chance for haulage enthusiasts to bag rare locos for haulage, as long as they could mingle with the crowds. Today a match has been played at Hillsborough football ground in Sheffield. The nearest railhead is the closed Wadsley Bridge station on the soon-to-close Woodhead line. The station is, however, still occasionally used for these workings. Drive this return service as far as Guide Bridge. You have no booked passenger stops. Maximum speed is 90mph. This train is vacuum-braked. The cab should be all set up ready. The police are just making sure everyone is aboard. Year: 1980.
