Steam Workshop - The Buffer Puffer 11.0 Part 5

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

Difficulty: Medium
Length: 35 Minutes Approx
Start Time: 16:38


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 Streatham to East Croydon via Herne Hill.


Starting at Streatham, you are currently following a Sutton to Luton service. Once the signal clears, proceed to Herne Hill where you will change ends before heading back to East Croydon via Crystal Palace.


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

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.
