Steam Workshop - 5I97 - 1602 Streatham Hill Shed to London Bridge

I have just released a new scenario on the Steam Workshop.

Difficulty: Medium
Length: 30 Minutes Approx
Start Time: 16:21

Warning

As this is a low priority empty stock working, the scenario is fairly slow going and you are unlikely to travel long distances in a hurry. If you prefer a quicker run or dislike the stop/start nature of this type of service, this scenario is probably not for you.

Description

This afternoon you are in charge of an empty stock working from Streatham Hill Shed to London Bridge. Using a mixture of Class 377/2 and 377/3 multiple units, you will drive the journey in its entirety.

Briefing

Starting at Streatham Hill, you are currently awaiting your path after being released late from the depot. Once given a clear signal, proceed to London Bridge where your service is due to form the 17:04 to Epsom. As you are an empty stock working you are not classed as a priority and can therefore be expected to be held for passenger services.

Requirements

South London Network
London to Brighton
Chatham Main Line - London to Gillingham
Class 455/8 'Southern' EMU Pack

Steam Workshop - 5C19 - 1015 Preston [PRE] to Carlisle Kingmoor

I have just released a new scenario on the Steam Workshop.

Difficulty: Medium
Length: 80 Minutes Approx
Start Time: 10:17

Warning

This scenario was initially created for my own personal use and I therefore made use of what I own, with slight modifications now made for workshop compatibility, therefore this scenario has a LOT of requirements and although much of the stock used is now in the 'classics' range and available at a more reasonable price, I appreciate the requirements may exclude some users. I also have many further scenarios that utilise similar requirements and intend to upload these in due course.

Description

Whilst working the early morning Cumbrian Coast service from Carlisle, the Mk2 coaches on this set have developed a CDL issue meaning the train has been pulled from service. An STP path has now been created for you to take the train back to Carlisle Kingmoor via the WCML. You will drive the section from Preston to Carlisle.

Briefing

Starting at Preston, you are currently awaiting your path. Once given a clear signal, proceed non-stop to Carlisle, you have been given special dispensation to run the train at a maximum speed of 90mph where limits permit. As traffic is fairly light at this time of day, no delays are expected.

Requirements

Wherry Lines: Norwich to Great Yarmouth
London to Brighton
Class 390 EMU Pack
Class 150 DMU Pack
Class 156 DMU Pack
Class 220 'Crosscountry Voyager' Pack

Steam Workshop - 4M11 - 1734 Coatbridge FLT to Crewe Basford Hall

I have just released a new scenario on the Steam Workshop.

Difficulty: Medium
Length: 85 Minutes Approx
Start Time: 20:31

Warning

This scenario was initially created for my own personal use and I therefore made use of what I own with slight modifications now made for workshop compatibility. Therefore this scenario has a LOT of requirements and although much of the stock used is now in the 'classics' range and available at a more reasonable price, I appreciate the requirements may exclude some users. I also have many further scenarios that utilise similar requirements and intend to upload these in due course.

Description

Tonight you are in charge of 4M11, a Coatbridge to Crewe Basford Hall container working hauled by a pair of Freightliner Class 86 locomotives. You will drive the section from Carlisle to Preston.

Briefing

Starting at Carlisle, you are clear for immediate departure. Although you are currently on time, there are reports of issues south of here so be aware that adverse signals may arise. Your booked arrival at Preston is at 21:55. Please remember that the maximum speed of your consist is 75mph.

Notes

Due to circumstances out of my control, during testing, both signal CE304 at the end of Carlisle platform 4 and the next signal CE278 stay at red despite the line being clear. If this is also the case for you, you will need to press TAB in order to pass both signals.

Requirements

WCML Over Shap – Carlisle to Preston

Steam Workshop - 1Q31 - 2337 Ipswich HS to Derby RTC

I have just released a new scenario on the Steam Workshop.

Difficulty: Easy
Length: 30 Minutes Approx
Start Time: 06:47

Description

This morning you are in charge of a late running Ipswich HS to Derby RTC Network Rail test train, hauled by a pair of top and tailed DRS Class 37 locomotives. Due to signalling issues at Bethnal Green, you are being diverted via Lea Junction and on to the North London Line. You will drive the section from Bow Junction to South Acton.

Briefing

Starting at Bow Junction, you are currently waiting for a light engine working to enter the yard. Once given a clear signal, proceed on to the North London Line as far as South Acton where this scenario will end.

Notes

I initially created this scenario for personal use, simply as an excuse to use a Class 37 on the North London Line. I have therefore made slight modifications in order to make the route useable on the Steam Workshop. It's not particularly taxing and should just be a relatively stress free early morning run on the route.

Requirements

North London Line
Great Eastern Main Line: London to Ipswich
Wherry Lines: Norwich to Great Yarmouth
GEML Class 90 Pack
Class 66 V2 'Freightliner'
Class 59/2 'DB Schenker' Pack
Class 67 'Diamond Jubilee' Pack

London Midland Class 150/1 Repaint - Now Available

I have just uploaded a new repaint to the DPSimulation website courtesy of Richard Fletcher.

Utilising the recently released Class 150/1 available from Steam, this repaint depicts the class in London Midland livery.

Following the furore surrounding physics with the release of this product, the simulation files have been aliased to the Thomson/Oovee Class 150/2, this means you must own both products in order for this repaint to work. A small fix has also been included to enable use of the two tone horn as well as fixes to correct the speedometer and top attainable speed.

As with all downloads, please pay attention to the documentation included.

This pack can be downloaded from the 'DMU' section of Richard's page by following this link.
