All four scenarios are based on the Edinburgh/Glasgow push-pull express service during the early 1980’s BR Blue period. Each push-pull train was made up of a Class 47/7 locomotive (47701-47712) with 5x MK3A coaches and a MK2F DBSO driving trailer. Five train sets operated a half-hourly service calling at Haymarket and Falkirk High. Every alternate train also called at Linlithgow and Polmont. The Class 47/7 locos were adapted to run at 100mph, instead of the usual 95mph speed limit for standard Class 47 locos.

The locomotive end would run Glasgow to Edinburgh, whilst the DBSO driving trailer would run Edinburgh to Glasgow. Due to the Armstrong Powerhouse DBSO trailer being undrivable, the locomotive end drives from Edinburgh to Glasgow in the scenarios. Apparently this happened occasionally in real life.

Every Class 47/7 locomotive used in the scenarios are accurately represented with their correct corresponding front-ends and nameplates for each loco.

Note: Scenario 2 has slightly incorrect ETA times when stopping at Linlithgow and Haymarket stations. This does not affect playability and completion of scenario. It seems to be a bug with the route itself rather than a problem with the scenario editor.
