2M02 09:15 Milngavie to Balloch24th March 2022
Using artistic license, I wanted to make a scenario with the preserved Class 303 running on the mainline again. As this is the result of that idea; a scenario on the Suburban Glasgow Northwest route.
It’s a beautiful Sunday morning, ideal for running the vintage EMU on her home turf again. Today you’ll drive 303032 (normally based at the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway) on a stopping service from Milngavie to Balloch, including the lesser-used curve between Anniesland and Scotstounhill.
Duration ~ 52 minutes
Difficulty Level ~ Easy (Though I found it a little difficult to keep to time; since the 303 is slower off the mark than a 318 or 320).
As for what stations you’ll be stopping at, here they are:
I know that the real 303032’s centre coach is from 303023 and painted in the SPT Carmine & Cream livery, but for the purposes of this scenario I wanted to have the whole unit in the same livery. And I think that if the real thing did return to the mainline, they’d have all three coaches repainted in a common livery.
Lastly, here are the DLC requirements:
Class 303 EMU
Class 380 EMU
Suburban Glasgow Northwest
Class 156 Diesel Multiple Unit Pack
Class 303 Sound Pack
Class 321 Electric Multiple Unit Pack
**Abellio ScotRail Class 380
**= I’m not sure if this pack is still available, since I thought it was discontinued.
