I think that is it. If i have forgotten something, Then please do accept my sincere apologies.
So today driver being a Sunday, All trains to Bristol and South Wales are on diversion via Newbury and the Berks&Hants route. You will take over a HST service to Weston-s-Mare just outside Reading. Your stops will be, Reading, Chippenham, Bath Spa, Bristol-t-Meads, Weston-s-Mare, and finally back to Bristol for your meal break.

Points of Note
Yes you do start just outside Reading. So you will have to set your cab and pull into Reading
You will have to change ends twice. Once at Chippenham, And again at Weston-s-Mare
You will be following a Pad-Plymouth down as far as Heywood Road Junction.
All signals work. So please obey them.
You will go wrong line from Thingley Junction to Chippenham. (This is allowed in the real world)
I have tested this 6 times in total, And it works fine on my p.c.

I really do hope you enjoy this scenario. I have said its fictional, But equally, I know it use to run quite a bit on a Sunday, I just don’t know the headcode.

Thanks for taking the time to download. Take care. Enjoy
