500 MILE CROSS COUNTRY RUN – PART 4: Derby to Birmingham

*64-BIT ONLY*

This is the fourth 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 4 runs from Derby to Birmingham New Street along Jetgriff’s Birmingham 2010 route.

The scenario uses a custom weather blueprint based on Matt Peddlesden’s guide at http://trainsimlive.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/ts2015-scenario-scripting-in-lua-part_15.html. I used the rain texture provided on this site. The blueprint is located in the included “Railworks\Assets” folder.

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