The timetable is very tight, so aggressive driving in some areas will be inevitable. Make sure to find a good balance between keeping to the timetable and keeping the passengers comfortable!

Brilliant scenario, nicely timed – I had no problems sticking to the timetable at all, small issues with red signals when the track ahead was clear to had to tab (but that could be me missing one of the recommended requirements, not sure).
Good AI pattern, nice job!
Firstly, love the scenario, but it could be better in this sense:
I know the scenario is challenging but the way TS is set up, it’s not TSW where you can still ‘complete’ a scenario, this fails you because how can we get a 20tonne train up to speed in a matter of seconds, also 20MPH out of Victoria, 45 for about 24 miles, Between Battersea & Bromley South. Class 465s are limited to 75MPH.
There’s no give in the timetable for the limitations of the scenario, and I get it Southeastern Trains are always late but how are we supposed to complete a scenario based on these timings?
Welcome to driving on the SE network.
In real life, I’ve found that the published timetables are far, far, far to tight for what a train can manage, whilst maintaining comfort and safety, so whilst I’ve yet to have a go at this scenario, I’d imagine it’s probably quite accurate to end up running late.
