Hello, everyone. This is a ‘standard’ scenario for DTG’s Southwestern Mainline ~ Southampton to Bournemouth route. It’s also a silly ‘what-if’ scenario, because I know that Class 707s don’t run this far south in real life (and when they did, it was just for mileage-accumulation runs).

It’s a busy morning in the south west of England, and you’ve been tasked with driving 707030 and 707021 on an SWR service as far as Bournemouth. This one has an interesting stopping pattern, that you’ll skip Millbrook before calling at all stations between Redbridge and Brockenhurst. Then you’ll run fast to Christchurch and Bournemouth. In other words, you’ll call at the following stations on this run:

Southampton Central
Ashurst New Forest
Beaulieu Road

Duration ~ 47 minutes
Difficulty Level ~ Easy

Even though I didn’t record a video of this run, you’re still welcome to check out my YouTube channel. There you’ll find TS2022 gameplay as well as other railway topics, though I’m taking a break of uploading to try and calm myself down. The video in which I explain what’s going on is called “I’ve Got Something To Say.”
