(BR 80s) 1O86 10:50 Penzance to Brighton – 28th September 1985 – 31439/33054/3311819th June 2019
The date is the 28th of September, 1985, and the last day of the summer timetable.
Today you are in charge of the 1O86 10:50 Penzance to Brighton Service, with an unusual triple header at the helm – in the shape of 31439, 33054 and 33118.
You are due to leave at 10:50, stopping at St Erth, Hayle, Camborne, Redruth, Truro, St Austell, Par, Bodmin Parkway, Liskeard, Plymouth (stopping for 6 minutes), Newton Abbott, and Exeter St Davids, arriving at 14:06.
Timings are tight on this one, so no hanging around to admire the scenery.
Please note that this scenario is based on an actual working that took place on that day in September 1985. I’m not sure if the triple header started from Penzance or Plymouth, or even Exeter – but I’ve assumed it was from Penzance.
All other AI trains are based on workings featured in the All Lines Timeable from 1985, apart from the odd one or two added for good measure.
