1P54 16.51 Birmingham New Street – Preston2nd April 2022
Inherited from Central trains, London Midland continued to operate the one service per day from Birmingham New Street to Preston during the evening rush hour. After having plans rejected to operate an hourly service to the Lancashire city, London Midland ceased the service all together during the December 2008 timetable change and instead opted to increase the Liverpool service to half hourly.
Set on a warm spring evening in 2008, you take charge of the Class 350 Desiro for the entire journey from Birmingham New Street to Preston. You will make calls at Sandwell & Dudley, Wolverhampton, Penkridge, Stafford, Crewe, Warrington Bank Quay, Wigan North Western and Preston. No issues enroute however the Virgin Trains servcie to Edinburgh will be hot on your heels so make sure your not late!
AI Traffic taken from the May 2008 WTT and liveries appropriate for the time period.
Although AI traffic isn’t too heavy, it is highly recommended to save the scenario regularly.
Basford Hall and Arpley yards have been purposely left empty as to not strain PC’s too much. Though made some effort to clutter depots.
+ Crewe P6 starter signal displays a red, you will need to press TAB to pass.
+ Signal PN5 (approach to Euxton Junction) has missing aspects but should display double yellows.
