In an alternate universe, Alan Thomson has won the lottery for £100m. There’s only one way to spend his winnings (other than a new train sim and the ATS yacht): restoring the APT into mainline running condition!

Today is the first day of mainline testing and 370003 has been given two paths for a return working from Crewe to Rugby. You’ll be in charge of the return journey from Rugby to Stafford non-stop. Your train will also be formed of 7 coaches instead of the usual 14 and your maximum speed is 125mph.

– WCML Trent Valley;
– Class 370 APT;
– WCML South.

Armstrong Powerhouse (and their dependencies):
– Class 350 EP.

Alan Thomson Sim (and their dependencies):
– Class 350 EP Passenger View Patch;
– Class 390 Avanti ‘Half Livery’.
