*Fictional*
A glimpse to the future!
Prior to delivery in 2023 of their new Class 807 EMUs that will be used on London to Birmingham/Blackpool/Liverpool services, this is a press event hosted by Avanti West Coast in the early summer of 2022 to demonstrate that the Class 800 can keep up with Pendolino timings while restricted to 110mph, this mainly due to the new trains superior acceleration and braking performance. A 10 car set has been loaned to Avanti by Hitachi for route clearance and driver training purposes, this drive will be one of the first with passengers. Your job will be to get the best out of the Class 800 between London Euston and Birmingham New Street with three stops on the way.
There are 50 AI trains in the scenario, including as many static AI as the sim could cope with on this memory hungry route. The AI trains are based on the spring 2022 midweek timetable
