Hi, and thank you for downloading this 50 minute scenario for the Riviera Line route by DTG.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 1Z51 1555 Kingswear – Bristol TM ‘The Torbay Express’”

Summary
On Saturday 10th August 2003, after hauling the outwards leg of the Torbay Express 7802 “Bradley Manor” was failed with a hot axle box. The nearest vacuum-fitted EWS loco was 37402 “Bont-y-Bermo”, around 170 miles away in Cardiff Canton. It was hastily rushed down to Devon and was able to haul the return train with a small delay. Drive the service between Paignton and Exeter.
Please go to the number 2 cab and change the brake timing switch to ‘Vacuum Passenger’, return to no.1 cab and set the direction switch to ‘Engine Only’, apply the loco brake and set the train brake to ‘First Application’ (40%) to build a vacuum. When you get the signal you will make calls at Paignton and Exeter St.David’s. Although the train is an hour late, by omitting the water stops en-route this will be made up.
