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] 1Z34 1235 Llandrindod Wells – Shrewsbury”

On Saturday 12th September 1998, Severn Valley Railway-based Stanier 8F 2-8-0 48773 hauled this Pathfinder Tours excursion over the Central Wales line from Shrewsbury, and then as far as Gloucester via Chepstow. Drive the last leg of the run from the booked water stop at Newport.

Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 95 minutes. The tender has been re-filled with water during the booked 35 minute stop at Newport. Once on the way you will be running non-stop to Gloucester via Chepstow. You will run along the Up Relief line as far as Severn Tunnel Junction, meaning you get to use the Bishton flyover. On arrival at Gloucester a class 47 will be ready to take over for the return run to Shrewsbury via Birmingham. 48773 and its support coach will later run back to their home base on the Severn Valley Railway at Kidderminster. Maximum speed for this loco is 50mph, owing to its small diameter driving wheels.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.
