21st May 2019 0 By Matt Carroll

A scenario for the wonderful Leeds Lines route. Clearly there are some compromises as the layout and appearance of the route, particularly around Leeds, has changed since 1989. However, hopefully there is still the feel of the time when the wires had not long gone up and Leeds station was a lot darker than it is today.

You will be driving the return leg of a Hertfordshire Rail Tours excursion that has visited various lines in the North East and has just arrived here behind 47406 via the Harrogate Loop. This sceanrio will cover the journey as far as Doncaster. On the day, 86233 was the allocated loco, but 86228 has been utilised here instead. Year : 1989.
