One of a series of quality scenario packs for Train Simulator 2022 created by Matt Carroll and Josh Thorpe. We aim to bring real railway operations to life as realistically as possible within the simulator environment.

This scenario pack has been
researched using archive Working Timetables, rolling stock allocation and livery records,  photographic records, and other source materials. What you see is hopefully a realistic representation of the pioneering Liverpool to Manchester railway line via Chat Moss, during the year 2017. 
This represents the timeframe between the start of electric services, and the introduction of the latest brand new rolling stock on Trans-Pennine and Northern services.


There are 8 scenarios, featuring accurate A.I. traffic and designed to represent some of the situations encountered by real-life drivers.

Key features include:

* Drive classes 37/0, 68, 175, 185, and 319.

* A mixture of fast and stopping passenger services, empty stock, and charter workings.

* Variations in weather

* Operational challenges such as late running and line closures

* Faults and failures

* Accurate A.I. traffic reflecting the appropriate timetable, with realistic stock allocations and liveries


1D32 17.50 Manchester Piccadilly to Holyhead and Llandudno

Traction: 175004 + 175007

Duration: 45 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Mayfield Loop – Warrington Bank Quay

On an Autumn afternoon drive this peak service from Manchester as far as Warrington Bank Quay. This service is extremely busy which is why it is booked to be formed of 4 cars. The service divides at Llandudno Junction, with the rear unit forming a portion to Llandudno. You begin in Mayfield Loop, south of Manchester Piccadilly, where services reverse in order to depart back towards Deansgate. Once underway you will call at Manchester Oxford Rd, Newton-le-Willows, Earlestown, and Warrington Bank Quay.


1E73 12.20 Liverpool Lime Street to Scarborough

Traction: 185140

Duration: 80 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Liverpool Lime Street to Manchester Piccadilly

On a fine Summer afternoon drive this lunchtime TransPennine departure from Liverpool as far as Manchester Piccadilly. This service is booked to run via Warrington Central. At departure time there are no known issues, however these things can change very quickly and the railway then faces the challenge of keeping the wheels moving.

 1F66 10.03 Newcastle to Liverpool Lime Street

Traction: 185123

Duration: 45 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Manchester Victoria – Liverpool Lime Street

On a freezing cold February afternoon take over a late-running service at Manchester Victoria and work it through to Liverpool. Delays on the other side of the Pennines have made this service around 35 minutes late. Although now running out of its booked path, Network Rail will try their best to
minimise further delays.

1Z69 18.14 Liverpool Lime Street to Cardiff Central

Traction: 68008 (+ 68026 DiT)

Duration: 45 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Liverpool Lime Street – Manchester Victoria

This is a day excursion from South Wales and Severnside offering a day visit to Manchester or Liverpool. The outwards run this morning was routed via Derby and the Hope Valley, and this return run will be via Macclesfield. Once underway you will drive the first stage of the return leg as far as Manchester Victoria, where you will be relieved.


1Z95 15.58 Scarborough to Liverpool Lime Street

Traction: 37518

Duration: 55 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Manchester Victoria to Liverpool Lime Street

On a fine June evening, drive the final leg of this returning excursion. This excursion ran from Liverpool to Scarborough, and back as far as Milford Loop south of York, hauled by steam traction. 37518 then took over to return the train to Liverpool.

Although there were no advertised passenger stops between Manchester and Liverpool in the brochure, the operator has arranged an additional call at Huyton to set-down a party to assist with their onward travel. Maximum speed is 80mph.


2F20 06.47 Liverpool Lime Street to Warrington Bank Quay

Traction: 319376

Duration: 55 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Liverpool Lime Street to Warrington Bank Quay

 On a damp early-Autumn morning drive a class 319 unit on a stopping service from Liverpool to Warrington Bank Quay. Calling at all stations, these services provide important connections at Warrington for long-distance services on the West Coast Main Line and towards North Wales.


2F25 11.02 Manchester Victoria to Liverpool Lime Street

Traction: 319431

Duration: 100 minutes               Year: 2017

Route covered: Manchester Victoria – Liverpool Lime Street – Allerton Depot

Drive a late morning stopping service between Manchester Victoria and Liverpool on an unsettled June weekday. These services have long layovers at Manchester Victoria, so to avoid blocking a platform they shunt out to the reversing siding.

This service calls at all stations to Liverpool.

This unit was reported with door issues earlier this morning but so far it has been OK. Hopefully there will be no issues on this journey.


 5E62 05+28 Ardwick T.M.D. to Liverpool Lime Street

Traction: 185110

Duration: 75 minutes                 Year: 2017

Route covered: Manchester Piccadilly – Liverpool Lime Street

Trans-Pennine’s fleet of class 185s are serviced at a dedicated depot in Ardwick, south of Manchester Piccadilly. Units run empty from and to the depot at the start and end of the day as part of their diagrams. You have brought this unit off Ardwick depot and have stopped in Manchester Piccadilly as booked to collect your guard. Once underway you will
drive empty to Liverpool Lime Street where this unit will form 1E62 07.12 to Newcastle. Several other trains are running empty to begin their day’s work and despite the early hour the network is starting to get busy.
