500 MILE CROSS COUNTRY RUN – PART 2: Edinburgh to Newcastle

*64-BIT ONLY*

MINOR UPDATE

Fixed an issue that caused the DSD to function incorrectly.

VERSION 1.11 CHANGES

Fixed incorrect set-up of weather triggers that broke the scenario.

VERSION 1.1 CHANGES

Added a small number of AI services to Waverley and a Rolling Start save to improve continuity from Part 1.
Updated to use AP Sky and Weather Enhancement in place of my “homebrew” weather pattern.
Updated to use AP Class 350 EP.

This is the second 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 2 runs from Edinburgh Waverley to Newcastle along Just Trains’ Newcastle to Edinburgh route.

The scenario utilises a weather pattern from the AP Sky and Weather Enhancement Pack (https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=197). Whilst I highly recommend the use of this pack, it is not required to play the scenario.

I have tested the scenario to the best of my ability on my own PC and it runs without issues. Usual disclaimers apply.
