As this is a low priority 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.
This afternoon you are in charge of another leg of the Buffer Puffer 11.0 railtour using a pair of DRS Class 37 locomotives and mk1 coaching stock. You will drive the section from London Bridge to West Croydon.
Starting at London Bridge, you are currently awaiting your path. Once given a clear signal, proceed to West Croydon where another driver will take over for the section around Epsom. For the most part, your path has you behind a West Croydon stopping service so expect many adverse signals.
I have tried to stay faithful to the timings on this leg of the original tour that ran on 25th January 2014. You will therefore find yourself waiting time at stations along your route. Although 37405 did run on this particular railtour, 37425 has had to substitute for 37610. The timings for the day can be found at http://www.sixbellsjunction.co.uk/10s/140125pt.htm
The 'Riviera Line in the Fifties' was chosen for the chocolate and cream coaching stock. Although steam heated, they were specifically chosen because the route was part of the TS2016 package and is likely to be owned by more users than any individual DLC that has similar coaches.
The weather setting should have been 'spring' to continue from part one on WCML Trent Valley. Unfortunately, the appearance of the foliage on South London Network has meant I have had to change this leg to summer.
