500 MILE CROSS COUNTRY RUN – PART 1

MINOR UPDATE

Fixed an error that caused DSD to function incorrectly for some users.

VERSION 1.1 CHANGES

Now uses AP Class 158 and Class 350 EP.
Fixed an error that caused the scenario to fail to end properly.

This is the first part of a mini-series of scenarios, set in the present day, depicting the Cross Country service from Dundee to Plymouth – one of a number of long-distance passenger services run by Cross Country trains linking Scotland to the West Country. Part 1 runs from Dundee to Edinburgh Waverley along Just Trains’ Scottish East Coast Main Line.

Due to lack of electrification on the route towards Glasgow Queen Street I have had to take some liberties with traction around Haymarket but the service times and destinations are realistic – I hope this doesn’t detract from anyone’s enjoyment.

I have tested the scenario to the best of my ability on my own PC – usual disclaimers apply. It should work in 32-bit, however if you do experience crashes or frame rate issues, please try lowering the “scenery quality” slider in TS graphical options.

INSTALLATION

Copy the included folder into the Steam folder where your TS installation is. This is usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common.
