Weekend Showcase - WCML Over Shap - 2003/2004

As outlined with the first set of screenshots last week following multiple emails asking what stock can be used when and where, we now move on to the next weekend showcase.

In this showcase we feature the WCML Over Shap route from Preston to Carlisle and depicts a variety of stock as it would have been seen in 2003/2004. Now several years into the era of privatisation, many of the British Rail liveries are now extinct and have been replaced with a variety of colourful schemes.
