Hi, and thank you for downloading this scenario.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 5V38 04+08 Longsight C.S. – Leeds’”

A scenario for the wonderful Manchester Stations to Huddersfield route. On a fine June Saturday morning, take an empty HST set across the Pennines on its way to form a Summer-dated service to Newquay. Year : 2001

The following are required to ensure that the scenario functions correctly :

* From Alan Thomson Sim :
– Manchester Stations to Huddersfield route by “PenninePacer” (and associated requirements) https://alanthomsonsim.com/?download=manchester-stations-to-huddersfield
– HST Branded Virgin West Coast & Cross Country pack (and associated requirements) https://alanthomsonsim.com/?download=hst-branded-virgin-west-coast-cross-country-pack
– Virgin Trains West Coast Loco-Hauled pack https://alanthomsonsim.com/?download=virgin-trains-west-coast-loco-hauled-pack

* From Armstrong Powerhouse https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/ :
– Class 43 (Valenta) / Mark 3 coach enhancement pack
– Class 90 / Mark 3 DVT pack (and associated requirements)
– Class 158 (Cummins) enhancement pack (and associated requirements)
– Class 175 enhancement pack (and associated requirements)

Optional Requirements
The following are NOT required to ensure that the scenario functions correctly, however they will add to the immersion :

* From Armstrong Powerhouse https://www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/ :
– Sky and Weather enhancement pack.
– Class 156 pack (static consist only)

Scenario run-through
This scenario should last around 40 minutes. Set-up your cab in Manchester Piccadilly and depart once you get the signal. This is one of 3 8-coach HST sets that are used by Virgin West Coast on their Euston to Holyhead services, as well as some Euston to Manchester trains that allow them to start / finish at Longsight for maintenance. Last night this set formed the very busy 18.55 from Euston to Manchester. It is now heading for Leeds to enhance capacity on the Cross Country network, by forming 1V38 06.05 Leeds to Newquay. It will return to Leeds tonight as 1E39, then run empty back to Longsight before resuming WCML duties.

I do hope you enjoy this scenario.
