SAT ONLY 11:04 Chester to Holyhead23rd February 2021
Hi there and thanks for checking out what is my first uploaded scenario.
The scenario is based on the real life working of a sat only train back in the 1990’s from Chester to Holyhead which I used to see on my visits to the station as a teenager, the service always seemed to arrive as a total mismatch of different liveried DMU’s… The service originated as two portions (one from Manchester Piccadilly and the other from Blackpool North) and these units joined together at Warrington Bank Quay before continuing on to Chester and then onto Holyhead. You will be in charge of the train from Chester to Llandudno Junction.
The timing of the player train is correct as is MOST of the AI however I do not know yet how to find all the WTT info such as headcodes etc so please excuse my lack of these…
There are also a couple of additional fictional AI trains included for effect…
A detailed readme file is included detailing the scenario and related requirements, which are:
Route: North Wales Coastal – Crewe to Llandudno STEAM (currently discontinued)

So thats it, as this is the first scenario I’m uploading to the site I would really appreciate any constructive feedback to help me build my confidence in scenario creation?
Hope you enjoy…
Ok, so I played this run and this is what happened, first, I enjoyed the eclectic mix of stock for the player train. Running at units top speed of 75 mph I was 4 minutes early at the first stop Prestatyn, then the time allowed to reach the next stop Rhyl was too tight to achieve arriving 2 minutes late despite full acceleration thereby getting a X. Colwyn Bay was also reached 2 minutes late but got the tick for that! Which left Llandudno Junction also arrived same amount late with a X. All in all it was a good run, if the timings were tweaked slightly it would be more likely to be completed successfully.
hi there, don’t know what happened with the route path but thanks for the input, like i said it was my first effort at uploading a scenario so will take on board what you mentioned and maybe test things extra few times next time but thanks again…
hey there to anyone who downloaded my scenario and couldn’t play due to the wrong route folder, i have now edited the upload so it should now work fine if you re download, sorry and thanks again for pointing it out to me..
I checked the install path for this scenario and found it is set to go in to route folder 000000-34d000-0000-000000002014 which is London to Bedford. I think you meant it to go to 000000-77-000-0000-000000002017 which is North Wales Coastal. I moved it to the correct folder but haven’t had time to play it yet, I’ll let you know how it plays out 🙂
