Hi, and thank you for downloading this scenario for the fantastic West Coast Main Line Midlands and North West route, phase 3.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario which should last around 35 minutes, and is named “[MJC] 1Z25 1342 Crewe – Preston”.

Drive an APT unit on a VIP working non-stop between Crewe and Preston. Year: 1982
Release the doors so that your VIP guests can board, then prepare to depart at 1342. You are to run non-stop to Preston, and Control have instructed all signalboxes to give you a clear run. Hopefully you will complete the journey in less than 30 minutes. C-APT in-cab speed guides are in place from the outskirts of Crewe all the way to the approach to Preston station. Maximum speed is 125mph. Known issue: Approaching Wigan the C-APT warning will sound too late, please brake according to the HUD.
