Hi, and thank you for downloading this 105 minute scenario for the South Wales Main Line (de-branded) route by DTG.
To install, simply copy the enclosed ‘Content’ folder to your Railworks folder. This is a ‘Standard’ scenario and is named “[MJC] 7B60 1445 Port Talbot Docks – Llanwern”

On an unsettled early Autumn afternoon you are in charge of one of the frequent trains of iron ore that run between the British Steel docks at Port Talbot and their steelworks at Llanwern. You have a pair of Cardiff Canton-allocated heavyweight class 37/7s. Year: 1989
British Steel have their own dock system at Port Talbot where iron ore and coal is landed for use in the adjacent steelworks. The docks also supply their works at Llanwern, east of Newport, and regular trains of coal in MGR hoppers and iron ore in these tippler wagons serve the vast appetite of the plant. Pairs of heavyweight class 37/7s replaced pairs of class 56s in 1988, which in turn replaced triple-headed class 37/0s in the late 1970s. Maximum speed is 45mph.
