Scottish Scenario Pack 1

Scottish Scenario Pack 1

11th April 2020 8 By CWilson4747

Due to the current situation in the world we all have a bit more time on our hands so to help fill everyone’s time I’ve decided to create a scenario pack for everyone to enjoy. Being based in Scotland the railways and rolling stock around Scotland is something I have the most knowledge about, so it makes sense to focus on that area,
hence why I have created my first scenario pack, Scottish Scenario Pack 1. I have got some more ideas for other packs in the future again focusing on the Scottish railways hence why I have titled this pack with a 1! With all my scenarios a read me will be provided, and as usual a little bit of background will be provided before going into the meat of the scenario as well as the requirements to run it.

The pack consists of 10 scenarios, with scenarios from 20 minutes to 90 minutes long there is a good deal of variety in this pack for you.

Now onto the Scenarios themselves, more information will be found in the read me’s of each Scenario, such as requirements and additional background information, but I thought I’d give you a little taster of what you can expect!

On your way to Edinburgh you will be calling at Kirkcaldy, Inverkeithing, Edinburgh Gateway, Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley.
