Here is a scenario for the latest version of West Coast Mainline South; specifically version 5.3.

It’s a cloudy Sunday afternoon in the Midlands, and you have been tasked with driving a London North Western Railway service on the section from Coventry to Birmingham New Street. The traction for this service is Class 350/3 No. 350373; which was the first of her class to be painted in the LNWR livery. On your way to Birmingham you will call at the following stations:

Tile Hill
Birmingham International
Marston Green
Lea Hall
Adderley Park
Birmingham New Street

Duration – 40 minutes
Difficulty Level – Easy

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

Class 170 DMU
*Class 390 Pendolino (the new one, not the original)*
Network Southeast Class 159
Portsmouth Direct Line – London Waterloo to Portsmouth

(Alan Thomson Sim)
BH Class 390 Reskin Pack
**Class 170 – West Midlands Trains (by Clowes)**
Transport for Wales Class 158 (by Clowes)
West Coast Mainline South V5.3

(Armstrong Powerhouse)
Class 158 (Perkins) Enhancement Pack
Class 168/170/171 Enhancement Pack
Class 220/221 Sound Pack (Pro) – (optional)
Class 319 Electric Multiple Unit Pack Vol. 1
Class 350 Enhancement Pack
Class 390 Sound Pack (optional)

(Just Trains)
Voyager Advanced (the original, not the 2019 version)

(Major Wales Design)
Class 390 Avanti West Coast

I don’t blame you if you think it’s a lot of requirements. However, I feel this sort of thing is necessary in order to acheive realistic/semi-accurate Ai traffic.

*Unfortunately the new Virgin Class 390 add-on was discontinued late in 2019. I hate to sound like a very rude person, but I have no intention of releasing an alternate version of this scenario that uses the old 390 (even though that one’s still available).*

**Something else that’s worthy of mention. I had two seperate W.M.T./W.M.R. Class 170 re-skins installed when I made this scenario. I don’t remember exactly which one I ended up using, but just to be on the safe side I suggest you also install the ‘West Midlands Railway Class 170’ by Steve Green.**
