Avanti ‘Gap Filler’ 1F23 Stafford – London Euston

Avanti ‘Gap Filler’ 1F23 Stafford – London Euston

1st August 2021 0 By Pdarsh34

Tuesday 14th April 2020 and Avanti West Coast’s 1F11 from London Euston to Liverpool Lime Street is runnning 43 minutes behind schedule, as a result the directors board have decided to terminate the service at Stafford. You have been tasked to operate a ‘Filler Service’ from Stafford back to London calling at more stops than usual. This is so the class 390 can arrive back into London at the same time 1F11 would have had it not been cancelled.

This scenario is split into 2 parts. Part 1 will take you along the WCML TV to Rugby, Part 2 will finish off the service from Rugby to London along DTG’s WCML South.
