Scenario run-though
Joining the run at Hereford, once underway you will run non-stop to Shrewsbury. Although both of these stations lie in England, they are close to the border offering railheads for nearby Welsh rugby fans, with Shrewsbury also having rail connections from the Central Wales and Cambrian lines. A deal with Arriva Trains Wales allows travel on connecting services for passengers travelling on this charter. You maximum speed is 100mph. On this section of the route, where split speed limits are in force, the LOWER value speed applies to this train, as the faster speeds only apply to trains formed of multiple units.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.
