Hi, and thank you for downloading this bitesize scenario for the fantastic West Coast Main Line South route.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Timetabled’ scenario which should last around 90 minutes, and is named “[MJC] 2B30 0751 Birmingham New St – Euston”.

On a fine Summer Saturday morning drive a ‘Network Express’ service from Birmingham to Euston as far as Northampton. Set up your cab and release the doors – this train is operated with a guard. On departure from Birmingham New Street you will call at all stations to Northampton, where you will be relieved. Year: 1989

As an alternative option, when you arrive at Stechford you can relinquish control of the class 317 and take-over driving the train stood on platform 3. To do this, stop at Stechford and follow the instructions before releasing the doors on the 317. If you wish to continue with the 317, just open the doors as normal.

Please note, class 303 EMUs are used as stand-ins for the class 304 ‘dinosaur’ units that would have been seen at this time.
