[Remaster Project] BMG Welsh Marches

[Remaster Project] BMG Welsh Marches

IMPORTANT: This is for the UNBRANDED version of the Welsh Marches route that is currently available, NOT the ATW BRANDED version that was removed from sale!

This is a new project I’ve started called “The Remaster Project”. This is a concept where I take all the scenarios included with one route in particular, convert them to Standard mode (because all scenarios supplied with modern routes available on Steam are Career mode), and replace all the trains within the scenarios to an AP (or other better version) of that train. For example, all Class 175s seen accross the scenarios have been swapped from the default one to the AP EP. None of these scenarios are new, they are just edited versions of the included ones. Most of the time, trains have just been swapped with a better version of the same train, but in some cases trains have been swapped with a completely different train that is more appropriate. For example, all stopping passenger trains are Class 175s in the default scenarios, including the London Midland ones at Hereford and Shrewsbury. These have been swapped with Class 170s, which are much more fitting for those services.
