Hi, and thank you for downloading this 90 minute scenario for the West Coast Main Line South route by DTG.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario, and is named “[MJC] 6K51 2100 Willesden Brent – Crewe”.

As this scenario is very heavily laden with A.I., I have also included an alternative version that features virtually no static A.I., and omits certain dependencies. This alternative of the scenario is suffixed ‘A.I. Light’. Items marked ‘**’ in the requirements list are not required for this version of the scenario.

On a fine June evening, take a train of loaded nuclear waste flasks on the first leg of its northbound run as far as Rugby. You have 37087 and 37510 at the head of tonight’s train. Please set-up your cab and proceed when you are ready, the route should be all set but just check the manual points. The signaller says you should be following a northbound Freightliner. These flasks have been brought from Dungeness this afternoon and staged here for the run to Crewe. They will stable at Crewe then continue to Sellafield early tomorrow morning. Maximum speed is 60mph. You begin in NRN area 066, and will change to area 061 after the Northampton line veers off at Roade. Please obey all signals unless advised otherwise.
