Hi, and thank you for downloading this 100 minute scenario for the fantastic King’s Cross to King’s Lynn and Peterborough – Cambridge combined route from Alan Thomson Sim.

An additional asset is included to assist with the functionality of the scenario, with grateful thanks to Vulcan Productions.

Summary
Today 66779, the last-built class 66 loco, will be named “Evening Star” at the National Railway Museum. This special charter has been arranged from London in connection with the event, with 87002 “Royal Sovereign” at the sharp end. You have a stop booked at Finsbury Park for staff purposes, not for passenger use. You have one booked passenger pick-up stop at Potters Bar. As this is a weekday, the normal charter train path is not available so unfortunately this will be slow going. Maximum speed is 100mph. Year: 2016
