500 MILE CROSS COUNTRY RUN – PART 5: Birmingham to Bristol

*64-BIT ONLY*

VERSION 1.02 CHANGES

Minor fixes to AI in the Bristol area to avoid a collision affecting some users.

VERSION 1.01 CHANGES

Minor fixes to AI in the Bristol area to avoid a possible collision and improve the last part of the scenario.

This is the fifth 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 5 runs from Birmingham New Street to Bristol Temple Meads along SpeedyPete’s XCRoute. For the purposes of the scenario, Class 321s are standing in for 323s.

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.
