Briefing: On October 23rd 2021 a 3 day rail tour ‘the West Highland Pullman’ ran from Reading to the West Highlands of Scotland using the Midland Pullman. This scenario recreates the first part of journey along the West Highland Line. Seemingly this was the first time a HST had worked a passenger service to Fort William
