Hello, this is one ‘standard’ scenario for the wonderful ATS ‘Leeds & York ECML Merge’ route – Length: Approx. 150 mins.

To install, simply extract the .zip file and copy the ‘Content’ folder to your RailWorks install “usually” found here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\RailWorks

>Scenario Guide:
You begin this scenario at Leeds having just taken over from your colleague at the controls of LNER’s 1A13 which you will now oversee all the way to London. This service originated from Skipton this morning and is usually booked for a Class 91 and mk4 set, but due to an overnight failure on Neville Hill depot you have the pleasure of the ever popular NL65 set for your journey south. Start off by letting passengers board at Leeds. It is a lovely late summer’s morning, and you have a journey time of just under two and a half hours. Lastly, your maximum permitted speed this morning is 125mph, enjoy the trip. A detailed manual is included in the download with links to all the requirements and further information.

All of these require *ALL* their listed dependencies to function correctly.

That’s it for this one. I really hope you enjoy the drive. Please do leave feedback, questions, or any issues via the download page on the website or via the ATS Group. Look forward to hearing your comments.

*Please note, due to the nature of the route and amount of AI, this is a very resource heavy scenario and as such static AI around Doncaster and Peterborough has been left for now to aid game performance, this doesn’t detract from the scenario. Lower spec PCs may not be able to run this as intended. Items marked (Recommended) are not essential to the scenario but highly recommended for the player to experience the intended immersion.
