GWR Tunnel improvements (Honiton to Plymouth)

GWR Tunnel improvements (Honiton to Plymouth)

Due to engineering works the line Between Tiverton parkway and Taunton have been closed
so all trains to London Paddington have been diverted onto the West of England mainline.
Drive the last leg of a GWR service from Paddington to Plymouth operated by an HST from Honiton to Plymouth via Exeter St Davids.

This scenario is based on the old may 2019 timetable but as I could not find any revised timetables that covered the engineering works I have had to make some assumptions using the information from GWR and network rail press releases about the train services that would run during the engineering work. Therefore the following scenario is not 100% accurate but I did aim to create AI traffic that is as close to the real thing as possible with the info I had.
