2J82 16:05 Norwich to Lowestoft

(Here’s another scenario for the Wherry Lines route, which is unique in that it’s (so-far) the only route to have been made by Armstrong Powerhouse).

Buckenham is one of the more unique stations on the Wherry Lines. It is currently the least-used station in Norfolk, as pointed out by Geoff Marshall in his ‘Least Used Stations’ series. This is an obvious indicator that Geoff filmed a video about his visit to Buckenham station. The other weird thing about this station is that it has no trains stopping there on weekdays, just two trains on Saturdays and 13 trains on Sundays. The Sunday trains cater for people going to the nature reserve at Buckenham Marshes.

In this scenario, you’ll be driving the last eastbound train of the week that stops at Buckenham. The traction for this run is Class 170 ‘Turbostar’ No. 170271, and you’ll be stopping at the following stations on your journey:

Reedham (Norfolk)
Oulton Broad North

In real life, this service would be operated by a Class 755. But since the 755 doesn’t exist in Train Simulator, I decided to have this scenario take place prior to 2019 (back when 153’s, 156’s and 170’s were still running on the Wherry Lines).

Duration – 50 minutes
Difficulty Level – Medium

The DLC and 3rd party requirements for this scenario are as follows:

Class 170 DMU
GEML Class 90

(Armstrong Powerhouse)
Class 156 Diesel Multiple Unit Pack
Class 168/170/171 Enhancement Pack
Wherry Lines – Norwich to Great Yarmouth & Lowestoft (+ extra stock pack)

(Just Trains)
Class 153 DMU Advanced
