5G98- 0715- Shields TMD- Haymarket Depot20th February 2021
With the Aberdeen Line being shut north of Montrose due to a damaged bridge, Scotrail’s HSTs were not required out of Edinburgh very often, only operating services to and from Inverness during this time with services to Dundee being covered by the stopping Arbroath Class 170 services. This allowed extra time for
maintenance such as the task you have been given today. You will be returning a single first class mark 3
coach and two HST powercars from Shields TMD where it had been attending the wheel lathe, to Haymarket
Depot. You will pick up the service at Glasgow Queen Street where the service turned around for a crew change,
before running along the E-G non stop via Falkirk High arriving into Haymarket and changing ends before
shunting the train into the depot. With this service not being a full HST set you will be limited to 75mph
throughout and with the weather being classic Scottish winter with heavy rain pouring down it could lead
to some challenges during the journey!
The service is accurate to the day it ran (19/02/2021) with all services running to the correct time and with accurate unit numbers, thanks to Realtime Trains’ ‘Know Your Train’ feature.
Also look out for a little Easter egg I’ve placed in Haymarket Depot at the end of the scenario!

Hope you enjoy the scenario!
Cool run, thank you !
I got routed quite strangely in Bathgate (and had to tab the preceding signal and a shunt one), I’m not sure that was intended.
Very enjoyable scenario, Thank you.
