Requirements marked with an asterisk (*) are not essential but are
recommended for the intended immersion. I’ve tried to keep requirements
as low as possible whilst being realistic.
(Screenshots do not have OHLE as I do not yet own the OHLE pack.)
All constructive criticism is welcome and any compliments you may have!
I dont know why but when I load in the scenario only the middle coaches of the 350 load and not the driving coaches.
hiya which route is this i cant find it in my game
I am having prob. I have the Class 390 (S9BL version) installed, though it keeps telling me the red and silver consist is missing. It doesn’t have one! I have checked in the folder and it still doesnt like it. Help!?
Btw, love the announcements. Good old Julie Berry 🙂
Hi, really sorry for the late reply I haven’t seen your comment until now. The scenario uses the DPS Horgy Class 390 VT Reskin found here: https://www.dpsimulation.org.uk/miscreskins.html (scroll down)
Great fun with the announcements, especially at Crewe when the poor lady had to get her tongue around all the mid Wales station names. Only problem is I failed to “complete” some of the announcements and failed the scenario, also I was late at Winsford despite my best efforts. Thank you for the scenario!
Hi, many thanks for the kind review! Glad you enjoyed it! About the announcements in the F1 menu, they are at a set speed where unless you are going exactly to that speed it won’t mark it as “completed”. As for being late at Winsford, the timings are based off of the real service so I can’t do much about that. I’ve given you a 4 minute wait at Crewe (as you are scheduled to arrive early in game) to catch up if you are late. As for the announcement at Crewe, that was like a little bonus one to keep you entertained at Crewe lol. Thank you so much for the kind words!
Thanks for the reply. Yes, I had the timetable in front of me as I was driving. Drivers must have to cane the life out of the 350 between Hartford and Winsford, and Winsford is a tricky station to stop at – approaching at 110mph for a very short platform.
Unfortunately so, it’s notch 5 all the way!
I really enjoyed this thanks.
Thank you so much! Glad to hear
Forgot to add the route requirement is WCML Midlands and Northwest, silly me lol
This is also a major requirement it seems: https://alanthomsonsim.com/?download=class-350-cab-and-pass-view-patch&fbclid=IwAR2GEOK82mlc0WQAkKzxhgg0B9pSRNdIdP8sZwkjS6ubEeI2jJWLf_RHoqQ
