(BR 80s) 13:55 ’97’ Eastleigh to Lymington Pier – 7th July 1985

5th August 2019 0 By Bogart259

The date is the 7th of July 1985 – which happens to be a Sunday.

Today you are in charge of the 13:55 Eastleigh to Lymington Pier, with the head code of 97, which today is being worked by 4VEP.

You are due to leave from St Deny’s Platform 2, once all your passengers have boarded (Being a Sunday, that won’t be many).

Your next stopping point today will be Southampton Central, followed by Millbrook, Redbridge, Totton, Lydhurst Road (these days known as Ashurst), Beaulieu Road, Brockenhurst, Lymington Town and Lymington Pier.

During testing, I found that the signal for platform 2 shows red, and doesn’t change. Can’t work out why, and pressing the TAB key doesn’t change it. However, another tester found that it showed green. So if you do see a red signal, you can proceed quite happily without getting a SPAD.

All other AI trains are based on workings featured in the All Lines Timetable from 1985, apart from the odd one or two added for good measure.

To run this scenario, you will need the following content:
