Hi, and thank you for downloading this 150 minute scenario for the fantastic Berks & Hants to Bristol and Penzance route.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 5Z63 09+53 Laira TMD – Crewe CS”.

Since late 2016 the former Virgin Trains ‘Pretendolino’ rake of coaches have been stabled in Laira depot. Some of the coaches are now required for training purposes by Trans Pennine Express in readiness for their introduction of class 68s and mark 5 coaches. You are driving the first leg of the movement to Crewe, between Laira and Bristol. Year: 2017

Maximum speed is 100mph. As the train is fully disc-braked there are no restrictions on speed. Due to an issue with the simulator, may will need to press ‘TAB’ for permission to pass the signal before Totnes station – there is a marker on the HUD to assist. There also two signals at the start of the scenario which will require you to press ‘TAB’ and you will be advised by messages.

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