5Z37 0710 Allerton TMD to Loughborough Brush18th April 2021
Northern are in the process of converting most of their Class 319 fleet into bi-mode Class 769 units for use in the northwest. The conversions are happening at Brush traction in Loughborough.
One unit – 319369 – is being towed by Class 37800 from Allerton Depot to Loughborough via the WCML to Lichfield and a reversal at Derby. You take over the train at Derby after the Class 37 has ran-around the train and take it to Loughborough Brush, reversing at Loughborough station.

Replaced MSO with Northern one and made it DC instead of AC to lower pantograph
Really enjoyed that, cheers. Keep it up!
Glad to read you enjoyed it!
What do you need to get the Dellner or Tightlock couplers on the Class 37? (I don’t have either of the AP Class 37 Packs so if the couplers come with those then that’s why I’m still asking.)
It’s fine now, I looked at the liveries in the manual quickly and I see that there’s an option to have the Dellner or Tightlock couplers.
not played this scenario (though intend to), but from the picture shown here, you’ve used the wrong coupler. 319s are tightlocks, not Delner, which the 37 is seen to be carrying in the picture. is that changed in the scenario itself?
Yes, the couplers have been changed in the scenario.
ahhh perfect. thank you 🙂
I really enjoyed playing this scenario keep up the good work
Glad you liked it!
Great scenario, really enjoyable drive. Thanks for taking the time to make this.
Another nice drive, Thank you.
Good scenario, Have you tried putting the 319 on a cold start? I use that to drag around dead locos on the back and still have access to the cabs. You may be able to use a Northern MSO in cold start
Haven’t tried that. Thanks for the suggestion!
