With Glastonbury Festival happening this weekend, the TOCs have put on additional trains to help cope with the thousands of revellers heading to the West Country. It’s Friday 28th June, and this morning you form 1-Zulu-73, the 08.38 from Paddington to the nearby town of Castle Cary – one of the special festival trains put on by GWR for the Glasto crowd.

Things to know:
– Due to the absence of the Class 345 ‘Aventra’ units in the game, these units are instead represented by the Class 360 in MJW’s Heathrow Express livery. These units shall be swapped in with the upcoming ATS Aventra AI consists in the future.

– I have also used the AP Class 66s to represent the Class 59s used for quarry workings in eastern Somerset, as both locomotives are virtually identical from the outside. I have relabelled them accordingly.

– I haven’t included static AI in the Greater London depots and yards (i.e. OOC/NorthPole, Acton, Southall, etc.) as this would hinder performance and may cause crashes.
