Take the 08.50 Edinburgh to Aberdeen fast working this morning from just South of Waverley, on one of the few regular if fairly rare class 46 working along the Scottish East Coast. Set in 1978 after the introduction of TOPS, you may still spot the odd green loco awaiting a visit to the paint shops.
This is a Changing Faces version of Whistler's Last stand, but now set a couple of years earlier in 1978 during the heyday of the Deltics and before the arrival of HSTs. Plenty of the typical Sulzer Class 2s around as well, and no large logos liveries in sight at all.
You start with the ECS for this a couple of miles further down the Southern approach to Waverley.
Go forward as soon as you get your signal and draw up into platform 11 where your passengers await.
Further instructions will be given as required.
Total time approx 95 minutes.
NOTE:- There are two slightly different versions, due to us having intermittent lack of memory errors when using the Railright Class 40. Maybe others will have better luck than me? It took several saves to fully test this one!
A second version was therefore produced utilising the DT Class 40 instead, which then tested without any issues.  
Also note that the Railright Class 40 is still needed for the Blue Class 27 reskin.

A short remade scenario for the Just Trains SECML route, as adapted through Rose's eyes.
Drive a short section of this "Green" class 25 hauled Edinburgh to Perth stopping train Northwards on a lovely early summer morning in 1965. One or two of the main services are still steam hauled plus a handful of other steam locos may also be seen in the background if you keep your eyes peeled.
As this only uses the central part of the route it should run on fairly low spec computers without too much trouble.
All stops for your train today. As secondman you have just been asked to take over for a while, starting with the approach into Inverkeithing. Take the train all stations as far as Ladybank this morning, where another fresh driving crew will then take over through to Perth. Around 45 minutes.

1966 - A Don's Night Time Blues..

Representing 1966 in our BR year by year Series, here we have a sleeper train set in the very final days of steam in Scotland. Virtually all services have been turned over to diesel working by now, but you might spot just the one steamer, Perth South’s old favorite Black Five no 44722 and only one single extra digit away from being the Flying Scotsman!
Following British Rail's edict last year that the corporate livery was to be Blue, over the next few years all the rolling stock and locomotive stock very gradually started appearing in the new BR colours, albeit sometimes rather slowly at first.
In 1966 when this scenario is set, very few locomotives indeed had received the new finish. However one of the first engines to get the blue treatment was the featured Deltic D9002 - ironic that some time in the future it was selected to revert back to green livery!
You will drive the 'Night Aberdonian' as far as Dundee, starting the scenario slightly South of Waverley station, where you stop next. Although a coldish night with a light covering of lying snow, the weather forecast tonight is only for flurries, so it should be a comfortable enough run.
Being so close to Christmas, naturally the load is a heavy one tonight. The dawn is nearing, and the local services are just starting to get running. Pull your train forward into platform 11 and let's get going....
Around 80 minutes for this, although it should also be possible to arrive a couple of minutes early.

A healthy dose of imagination is also needed for a 1960s feeling on a modern route! I see no wires.....
Note that any DMU services are representative only, so the chosen selection is for variety only.

Usurped by Northern..

A fictitious but plausible pair of scenarios, There are (by our standard) only minor differences between them, other than the driven consists.
EITHER..
So what would have happened this year if Scotrail had been beaten to the new Class 68 on the Fife Circle services by Northern? Would the only option then been an exact reverse of reality, with pairs of DRS Class 37s working in Scotland instead..?
OR
Based on a fictitious outcome where "Northern" had put forward a better business case for using the Class 68 on boosting some of their services before Scotrail had asked for the extra Fife stock that they actually got in real life. As a consequence the alternative just might well have been this combination, using a newly Scotrail liveried Class 67, the DRS coaches and maybe an ex-Anglia DBSO..if they could spare them!
Having arrived from Edinburgh this evening, now drive this back to Waverley with stops at all stations. Get ready, we leave at 18.15. Please note this is based on the real working, but the time allowances between Inverkeithing and Waverley are just too slack, hence the earlier arrival at Waverley in this scenario is featured rather than having a 13 minute wait at Dalmeny..... Time needed - around 65 minutes

The Golf Growler Part Two..

After the success of the charter 3 years earlier (A Green Past the Greens), once again this golfer's charter special has been arranged, this time following the local lady golfers at the Ladies' British Open Championship, held at Royal Birkdale. Although again requested this time the green Class 40 D200 used before is not available, but a pair of newly refurbished Highland Class 37s will fill the gap very nicely thank you.
Starting as you are just entering Dundee, make your stop before proceeding to the end of this section. Go as soon as you have a signal, one further stop is to be made at Leuchars before then running through to Dalmeny, where an Eastfield driver will be waiting. Part 3 will take you through onto the Edinburgh Glasgow route, where a surprise choice of pathing awaits! Maximum speed 80mph for this working.

Changing Faces 14 - Loco Lengthened..

Until 2005 BR Scotrail owned a small fleet of 18 Class 150/2 units which were mainly used on Fife Circle services in and out of Edinburgh Waverley. Following that, these were then transferred South to Arriva trains where they still remain in regular service. However (and still normal practice even today) as some of the peak time services are heavily loaded they are strengthened to a loco hauled service on a regular basis. This forms the basis of this (albeit partly fictitious) Changing Faces version of the Fife Circle services in the latter end of BR days, at this time it would probably be substituting for an unavailable Sprinter at a time when loco hauled coaches were still common, and easily put back into use.
Today you have one of the Highland Class 37s on this working, you will now work the clockwise remainder through to Waverley.The signal to enter Thornton and Glenrothes has hopefully just cleared so pull into the platform and load up for the run via Kirkcaldy and Southward. It's a pleasant October late evening, so you can just concentrate on some fairly sharp timings for this service, and arrive on time! A couple of other Class 37/4s are in use today, those Sprinters obviously not reliable as yet. No wonder they sent them South.....
Heavily based on the Sprinter Seasons series, but now with real engines!

1987 - Follow the Swallows..

Representing 1987 in our BR year by year series. Following the 21st anniversary of the Inter City brand in May 1987, a new livery was introduced for the premier services featuring a 'Flying Swallow' to denote grace and speed. Although only intended for the top express services, it inevitably soon became a familiar sight as the summer of 1987 progressed. You will drive one of the first re-liveried examples today on one of the regular through cross country service to the South West of England.
Having just briefly stopped at the signal before going down the tunnel into Dundee, please make your approach into the platform. Although a long distance service, you have a surprising number of stops on your way to Edinburgh Waverley, where a fresh Class 47 will then take over for the run South. For you, your duty and this scenario, ends there.  Approx 90 minutes.
The timings for your service are (loosely) based on the current Cross Country trains Aberdeen to Penzance through service and taken from the recent 2014 summer timetable. Obviously a Class 47 is no match for the Voyager, hence you taking a few minutes longer!
The 2nd leg of the same service (different year) is also available 'Carry on Follow that Swallow' for the JT Edinburgh Newcastle route.
Now fully updated for TS2015. All the assets for this scenario are currently available!
If you wish to retain the previous version, then we suggest you clone it first. There are a number of stock changes.

Sunset of the Baby Sulzers..

Fully refurbished for compatibility with TS2015. All assets are currently available. The previous version is now withdrawn. As new ID# numbers have been used then the old IHH based version subtitled with (SP5) will remain in your menu unless uninstalled....
Two new versions are included, one using the DT Class 40 and with just a little bit of 'bull' regarding the Class 27 numbering.
The other uses the AP RailRight Class 40, and extra stock which includes a TOPS numbered Class 27 and also uses the DBSO...
Following the replacement of the Edinburgh Glasgow trains with dedicated 47/7 and Push Pull stock the class 27 locos gained a few extra workings in placed of life expired Dmus. One of those workings was the Dundee to Edinburgh line, at least until the arrival of the 'Sprinters' later in this decade..
You will work one of those today from Dundee stopping all stations until Kirkcaldy, then semifast into Edinburgh. Your engine is 27207, a former PushPull loco now derated to a standard class 27 but never renumbered.
Around 85 minutes for this...

IHH Collection - Baby Sulzer Dawn..

A bonus "Changing Faces" scenario, An alternative version of 'Sunset of the Baby Sulzers', showing them during the first few years of service instead, and just after the steam years. TOPS has yet to arrive, in fact not everything is Blue yet either. Not surprisingly most of the assets used for this scenario are from the now closed Iron Horse House stables...

You will work one of the semi-fast services today from Dundee stopping all stations until Kirkcaldy, then semi-fast into Edinburgh. Your engine is D5387, which will soon become a Push-Pull loco, one of the last to be allocated to that service, which has already started, if not yet fully efficient. Prepare to depart soon. Look out for the scrap lines at Haymarket, as modernisation already has it's first casualties.....

Hybrids from Haymarket..

Class 121 as a substitute for the Class 122.
Originally built for the WR, by 1967 several of the Class 121/122 single car units had found their way North to the Scottish Region. By the time of this scenario all five remaining units were nominally based at Dundee. This working today replicates a real occasion where one - Sc55000 - replaced an unavailable Class 101 driving coach on a 13.42 stopping service to Kirkcaldy on an October early afternoon.

Starting out from Waverley, collect any late passengers and then proceed when signaled. The newly introduced Class 47 push pulls have now become a regular feature, and so you might see a couple of them around today.

Mary of Lochore..

Back in the 1960s there was a sizeable coalfield in Fife, with a number of collieries concentrated around the Dunfermline and Thornton areas. One of those was the Mary colliery in Lochore, which had two working shafts, and has inspired the title of this scenario.
The Standard 9F was a rare beast in Scotland, although at one time they were trialled, so rather surprisingly today you will have the chance to drive this one on another test working, rather than one of the regular WD 2-10-0s normally used and soon reverted to in the area.
After the winter UK peak, much Scottish coal then goes for export as some of the Scandinavian nations stockpile ready for the following winter. Take this special working from Mary Colliery to Aberdeen Docks as soon as you are ready. You will need to slot into your path and will also be looped at Ladybank. As your wagons today are the unfitted old 16t ones the maximum speed is 45mph. Your shift will end at Dundee.

Please note that the O4 has been used as a "surrogate" class, the working depicted would have probably have been the WD 2-8-0 Class....
It was used simply because of the useful stock supplied with it, which included an available V2, of which the area had a few! Total time 65 minutes.

A New Castle for Scotland (Part 2)..

Following the first part over the Aberdeen Angus route, here is part 2 for the Scottish ECML route.
A purely fictitious 'Landcruise' charter train, featuring a disguised Nunney Castle fitted out for the special as 7007 Great Western, and breaking new ground for the class in the land of castles. The special has already traveled Southward from Aberdeen, you start after a brief signal check into Dundee platform and will eventually find your way via the WCML to the Carlisle - Settle route.
Please take your train into the platform here at Dundee, where a stop will be made. You will then finally pick up at Leuchars and Kirkcaldy before the next stage at Dalmeny for a water stop and the end of your duty. It then goes via Cumbernauld to the WCML. Approx time 82 minutes

Changing Faces 05 - Scottish Stopper..

How the view changed in just a few short years following the adoption of the BR Blue livery. A second look at our Sixties Stopper scenario, but set just a few years later. Soon afterwards chaos followed with the introduction of TOPS, but that's for another day....
Take a short section of this class 27 hauled train Northwards via Ladybank to Perth on a lovely Autumn morning in 1973. A couple of Green locos may also still be seen around if you keep your eyes peeled, even though Scotland's MPDs were very efficient in applying the new livery.
All stops for your train today. You have just been stopped by a red signal and are now just waiting for a signal to proceed into Inverkeithing, your next stop. Take the train all stations then as far as Ladybank where this scenario ends.
As with the original this scenario has deliberately been limited to the central section of this fine route so that those with modest computers or Laptops may be able to run it without trouble. You still will have to use a little imagination at times, as many of those backgrounds look a wee bit too modern!

Following a brief stop, and a pickup at Waverley, we will be away in a couple of minutes. Hurry those passengers on to your train. Departure when you are given the right away. There are Fife line services in front of you, so try to stick to your path, no hurry should be needed, just a steady run... Total Time approx 85 minutes

A Green Past the Greens (Part 2)..

Following a few local golfers on a British open tournament to be held at Royal Lytham St Anne's, a few local clubs have got together to organise a special charter service to Blackpool for the weekend. As a number of members are rail enthusiasts then of course they requested, and got, this fine locomotive.
Welcome to one of the outings for Green 40 D200 in 1983, as you take this Aberdeen to Blackpool charter service on the second leg of the Southbound working.
Starting as you are just entering Dundee, make your stop before proceeding to the end of this section. Go as soon as you have a signal, one further stop is to be made at Leuchars before then running through to Dalmeny, where an Eastfield driver will be waiting. Part 3 will take you through onto the Edinburgh Glasgow route, where a surprise choice of pathing awaits!

Weekend Tay Diversions..

A career scenario for the Scottish East Coast Main Line. Due to over-running engineering works on the South approach to Tay Bridge a number of services have had to be routed via Perth and Ladybank, whilst any intermediate stations have had to endure a bus ride instead of the usual train as far as Ladybank this morning. As a result any diverted services are currently making an extra stop here at Ladybank, taking advantage of the crossover to the South of the platform. Meanwhile a couple of ballast trains are speeding North to help complete the repairs.
Take your service into the special stop at Ladybank to collect those passengers bussed in, and then run through to Waverley as a semi-fast service. Your stops today are at Ladybank, then Kirkcaldy, Aberdour, Inverkeithing, Haymarket and finally Edinburgh Waverley in around 60 minutes time.
Please forgive us a bit of artistic license here and there, mainly as efforts have been made to try and keep the asset count as low as possible. Remember this is a career scenario, and you will be awarded points based on your timekeeping, passenger comfort, and adherence to speed limits. No tricks have been played, a steady drive should keep you on time without the need to rush.

The Sprinter Seasons (Spring)..

V1.2015 Upgrades this scenario for TS2015 with a revised stock list. All items are currently available at time of publishing. It also has a new Id# so anyone who wishes to retain the original (using the older assets and now unsupported) can do.
All of them are set in the early 90s, based on using four different routes, each one during a specific season, and also featuring a different Sprinter type unit to drive.
During the 1990s and in fact until 2005 BR Scotrail owned a small fleet of 18 Class 150/2 units which were mainly used on Fife Circle services in and out of Edinburgh Waverley. Following that, these were then transferred South to Arriva Trains Wales where they still remain in regular service.
Today you drive your 150 on a Fife Circle service North via Rosyth and Dunfermline.
The signal to enter Thornton and Glenrothes has just cleared. Pull into the platform and load up for the run via Kirkcaldy and then back Southward to Edinburgh. It's a warm and pleasant May late morning, but watch out for some slippy rails from the odd passing shower.

"Perth Piper"..

Two main versions included, for either the Class 24 or Class 27.
A third bonus one included only and exclusive to http://mullys.webs.com/
Just a wee small run from Aberdeen to Perth via Dundee in the summer of 1970. You commence this mini-scenario a mile or so North of Dundee, and have to put your train into the ECS sidings South of Perth after arrival. Easy enough, but mind that a Glasgow train in front of you is a bit late. Start just after the signals clear, and then pull forward into Dundee platform 1, making the connection into the Edinburgh service, which leaves before you. You then stop at Invergowrie before proceeding into Perth. Drop your passengers, and proceed to the South sidings where your train will be serviced ready for a teatime run back to Aberdeen.
However your shift ends here today.
Please note that you may have to seek permission from the signalman to enter the sidings, so press TAB as required, including the shunt signals. Your path is set correctly though. Just for a bit of fun, this a nice quick mini scenario 40mins for those with little time to spare. As such it largely inspired our Snacktime Scenario series. Stock is probably typical for the year 1970, but all the timings are fictional.
Created as the North approach to Dundee is rarely seen, as is the South of Perth. Note we chucked a few extra trees in the background outside Dundee to mask the end of the line! The updated version has many changes from the original. Although the earlier one is now obsolete, this new version has a different Id#, and can be installed alongside. Support will NOT be given for the original, and there is no guarantee of it working without some tweaks by the user, there will be broken consists until mended.
Enjoy the Piper at Perth, pop out of the cab for a moment and listen.

Sunset of the Baby Sulzers..

Updated for SP5 and TS2014.
Following the replacement of the Edinburgh - Glasgow trains with dedicated 47/7 and Push Pull stock the class 27 locos gained a few extra workings in placed of life expired Dmus.
One of those regular workings was on the Dundee to Edinburgh service, at least until the arrival of the 'Sprinters' a few years later.
You will work one of those today from Dundee stopping all stations until Kirkcaldy, then running semi-fast into Edinburgh.
Your engine is no 27207, one of the former Push-Pull locos, but now derated to a standard class 27 although never renumbered.

This is a completely modified version which has been fully rewritten to SP5 standards.
Please uninstall or clone any other versions first. Some assets have also been changed as well, so check the list below. The stock is appropriate to 1983, and is modified as such.
This should now run without too many problems on fairly moderate systems, however we do still advise regular saves, especially around the Haymarket/Edinburgh area.

"Sixties Stopper"..

V 4.2014 Updated for SP5 and TS2014.
A small number of minor modifications made. Please uninstall the older version first.
Welcome to the late 1960's in the glorious Kingdom of Fife. You have just been checked entering Inverkeithing on your last duty of today, and will now take your service hauled by one of the new Class 25 locomotives via all stations as far as Ladybank where your shift ends after a hard night.
It is the end of steam here in Scotland, just a handful of freight workings left, so keep looking and you may spot one or two of them...
This scenario has deliberately been limited to the central section of this fine route so that even those with modest computers should be able to run it without too much trouble.
Have to use a little imagination at times, as some of those background scenics look a wee bit too modern!

1980 - Whistlers Last Stand

Updated for SP5 and TS2014.
Representing 1980 for our BR year by year series. The new HSTs had recently been introduced, which led to a cascade of the previous mainly express locomotives being used increasingly on stopping and semi-fast services (and also on freights) previously dominated by the smaller engines. The line from Edinburgh through the Kingdom of Fife is the classic example, amongst others, where Class 40s (and the Class 55s), still found regular use until their own demise also occured a few years later following the introduction of the Sprinters and other next generation DMUs. The Deltics only lasted another 17 months, but the Class 40 continued, with a steady number of withdrawals each year until 1985, when the rest of the Class except celebrity no 40122 were taken out of service. 40122 (or D200) lasted until 1988 for use on special workings, and was then happily presented to the National Railway Museum.
You take the 11.00 Edinburgh Waverley to Aberdeen limited stop train on a pleasant summer morning. You start (and rather unusually) with the ECS further down on the Southern approach to Waverley station. Go forwards as soon as you get your signal, then draw up alongside platform 11 where your passengers await. Departure will of course be at 11.00.
Based on a true working by the class 40 Split Headcode no 40144 on that day. All of the other services today whilst not strictly timetabled are fairly typical of the late 70s to early 80s era on the ScECML There are two versions included depending which Class 40 you have. Each one has a separate Id# number so can both be installed if you wish. These are both considerable
and further upgrades to the original ‘Whistlers Last Stand’ scenarios, with several improvements and general tidying up where deemed required. This one has now been further upgraded for the TS2014 and SECML SP5 platforms..

1981 A Deltic for a Dundee DMU..

Updated for SP5 and TS2014.
By 1981 sufficient numbers of the then new HSTs had been delivered to replace the previously Deltic hauled express services on the ECML. As a result the now surplus fleet of Deltics increasingly found use on many secondary services, on some Cross Country and Scottish services such as the ScECML, Hull, and Trans Pennine trains.
But the working today, based on a real event may have been one of the most unexpected of all. Due to the failure of the rostered DMU set at the Haymarket Mpd a scratch set of mark 1 coaches had been made up as a replacement for the 2L54 17.24 stopping service to Dundee. This has now been turned ready for return as the 2G16 19.22 stopping train to Edinburgh Waverley, which you will drive South tonight.
Oh, and did we mention that your engine is 55018. Try to keep to the timetable. Early running is far too easy with the combination of a Deltic and four coaches, the hardest challenge is actually to keep to the DMU timings of the timetabled service.

From the ongoing British Rail year by year series we are currently doing, including a pre British Rail sampler scenario set in 1964.

Clandestine Moves No 4 (Back to Bases)..

Updated TS2015 version with a fair number of other changes. This will overwrite all previous editions.
Once again Britain's railway system is called upon to assist the UK's Combined Services, this time on a very Clandestine Exercise involving Navy units from Rosyth and Airbourne units based at RAF Leuchars. Would like to tell you more but it is really is Top Secret!
Your engine today is the ex-Wales 37429 now transferred North onto Scottish soil, not the fastest but a reliable loco. Having in part 3 taken your train to Leuchars you were whisked away by the MOD who then fed you and provided rest. Now you have been returned to your train as a 'trusted' driver. While you were resting the stock has been to Aberdeen for servicing and is now awaiting you in the loop at Dundee. Your duty is to take those servicemen (and the attached civilian staff) back South, following a very successful mission, to their bases.
Remember do not speak of this to anyone after you complete your duty today...

Your engine today is the ex-Wales 37429 now transferred North onto Scottish soil, not the fastest but a reliable loco. You start with the empty stock which is hidden away deep inside Haymarket MPD. Firstly reverse out of the depot following the onscreen prompts given, then proceed forwards as long as you have a signal to Inverkeithing which is where the main Rosyth units involved will join the train. A few Combined Forces civilians have also been secretly allowed onboard ready, so don't be surprised to see a few faces in the coaches. Your eventual destination is Leuchars, where the train will then be stabled until needed. Remember do not speak of this to anyone after you complete your duty today... Around 70 minutes.

Snack-time Scenarios

Introducing a new concept for our Rosgar scenarios written for Train simulator 2013. These scenarios are specifically designed to take around 30 minutes each, and feature a mixture of the default assets included and small numbers of carefully matched third party Payware assets, to hopefully still give a good experience for those with perhaps a little less free time on their hands.  Users are advised that they will also all make full use of the UKTS Freeware project packs as indicated in the description and requirements printed below.
Enjoy the drive..

Snack-time Scenario No 40

A very small change for TS2015 has been made, replacing the Strathclyde 156 reskin with one which is available, and the weather.
There are no other changes to this one for the JT Scottish ECML route.

Following some track replacement on the Ladybank Perth line you, and your celebrity Aberdeen based EWS Class 33 no 33030 on a very rare (and slightly fictitious) outing will work your Sealion empties as far as Dundee.
A maximum speed of 60mph applies to this train.
Start at Hilton Junction and proceed to the next signal and await passage onto the main line. One of the PW managers is in the cab with you, drop him off at Perth as you pass.
The next, and taking the series to no 40 is this one based on an engineering service.

Small note. Due to the current uncertainty with RW_Tools and *.ap files we may take a brief hiatus until things become a little clearer, as we know many use RW_Tools with our scenarios to replace stock. In addition we will be checking all our existing scenarios to ensure TS2014 compatibility, a time consuming task.

Snack-time Scenario No 01 - Special TS-2015 IHH Edition

A special version of this original Snacktime scenario designed around TS-2015 and exclusive to here.
This special variation also pays homage to some great looking IHH creations for all those owners of rolling stock from the sadly now closed Iron Horse House.
This first in this series takes you on a short Class 27 service from just outside Perth on a Glasgow Dundee via Stirling service in early Autumn 1980. The timings are fairly tight.
If the signal has already cleared, then off we go into Perth. Make haste today, as the timing are tight. Stops at Perth, Invergowrie and finally Dundee at 15.31. First tip, release that brake as soon as possible, or it will be a slow start....

Snack-time Scenario No 10

Updated and refurbished for TS2015 Note the amended stock.
Following earlier delays the driver of this Fife Circle service is now overdue the mandatory break, which he will now take. As relief driver at Inverkeithing you will take it around the loop back to Inverkeithing, where a refreshed driver will continue the duty. Of course the return loop is not present on this route at the moment, so the scenario ends at Thornton and Glenrothes.
Start at Inverkeithing, load your passengers ready for departure at 14.00. This train stops at all stations bar Dalgety Bay. An earlier report received of some uneven riding between Aberdour and Burntisland has led to an overall speed limit of 60mph being imposed over this section for the time being. Take care...

Snack-time Scenario No 21

A new version of this for TS2015 with all stock currently available. It has a new Id# so will not overwrite the previous IHH Class 17 based version, which now moves from here into our Retro collection.

Partly influenced by our existing Sixties Stopper, but a little further back in time to 1963, when there was still quite a lot of steam around, and not a single BR blue engine in sight.
The Aberdeen expresses often had one of the remaining Gresley A4's on the front at this time, but you will today be driving something a bit more mundane!
Welcome to a RN supplies freight special working, as due to several days of high winds a ship has diverted to Methil Docks, your job is to transport some essentials through to RN Rosyth. The engine allocated is one of the three Thornton Standard 4MT's, so you can expect to work hard today, and use a lot of sand.
The normal Yardman has started today at Burntisland, so you must stop there to pick him up. In addition the new signal onto the Rosyth Dock branch now requires the permission (TAB) from the Signalman to pass as it fared poorly with the latest storm.The weather is still not so good today, a heavy fall of snow has now followed so be careful how you go. The last section is very challenging, you might have to take a run at that hill and even speed slightly - no more than 20mph though! We wonder if anyone else will manage without speeding, we couldn't!
Most of the locos featured also have some local connections.... Also required is a  healthy amount of imagination to 'see' this modern route in this 1960s guise....  Total Time Approx 40mins.

Snack-time Scenario No 26

Here is the next in the series, back along the SECML Fife line, and making number 26 in our Snacktime scenario series.
Owing to the partial failure of the Class 27 on the 10.00 Edinburgh Dundee, a 'spare' 101 unit has been sent down from Perth as a replacement. Meanwhile the Class 27 has been restored to power, and will now run non-stop to Dundee, from where it will return fast to Edinburgh and hopefully regain it's rostered schedule again. As a result of this, the spare DMU provided will now run as a stopping extra for the intermediate stations that lost their stops due to the earlier problem.
You will now drive this relief train, first into the platform at Ladybank and then, after reversal, stopping all stations to Dundee, from where the unit will be returned to Perth empty stock. Go as soon as the delayed Class 27 service leaves the platform.
It's a beautiful sunny day today, so enjoy the run. The schedule is fairly easy, but the passengers would be more than happy if you can make a bit of time up before Dundee, where they should have been nearly an hour earlier! Total Time Approx 38mins
The now unavailable original Class 101 has been used, as most users already have this. However this should be freely swappable with RW_Tools if you have another of the 101 packs. Remember to untick the 'keep same numbers' box if you change them.
The white DMU as used is only available in the original pack, and uses a different numbering system to the BR Blue Grey units

Snack-time Scenario No 15

Continuing with the next, number 15, in our new Snacktime scenario series.
These scenarios are specifically designed to take around 30 minutes each, and feature a mixture of the default assets included, and just small numbers of carefully matched third party Payware assets, to hopefully still give a good experience for those with perhaps a little less free time on their hands.
Shamelessly converted from the earlier Perth Piper scenario, and taking a look at how the same service would appear 20 years later in summer 1990 - with a bit of an ironic twist.
Again you start North of Dundee, and have to take your unit as far as Perth. However many changes have been made to fit this into the newer era, now Sprinters rule the roost in Fife and nearly all the type 2s have gone. However around 30 of these trusty engines made it into 1990, in fact some of the class surviving as late as 1993.
Your train should have been a Class 158 Sprinter today, but it failed. Look at what they gave you instead. Just like old times indeed! The previous departure is also in trouble so watch those signals along the way. Start just after the signal clears, and then pull forward into Dundee platform, making a connection into the Edinburgh service, which will then leave just before you.
The weather is not so good today, a bit of Scotch mist as well, still waiting for the British summer (does it ever arrive?).

Snack-time Scenario No 06

The sixth in the series takes you on a 'Fife Circle' anticlockwise service heading South towards Edinburgh on a damp and foggy November evening. You have just stopped at Rosyth platform following the run down from Dunfermline, so you can now collect your passengers and head South. Timings are a bit tight but are fully achievable. For stock availability purposes you are driving the three car Strathclyde Class 101 in this scenario, if you have another DMU type then feel free to swap, but note that this does not always work out (and remember to untick the Change numbers box), hence no guarantee can be given if you do. However for our own purpose the standard 101 swapped in fine.
A small selection of payware has also been used, and all these are (currently) available.
Most of the other stock is either default, or contained in UKTS Freeware Project Packs.  Total time approx 31 minutes
