Steaming over Beattock

Steaming over Beattock - Phase 1
The Route

The West Coast Main Line (WCML) was, and still is, one of the busiest rail lines in Europe. In this project the section between Carlisle and Glasgow is portrayed in the late 1950s, early 1960s. Many intermediate stations and signal boxes were still in operation, and so too were many goods yards. The modelling is based on the DLC "WCML-N" by RSC/KeithMRoss, but regressed from the 1990s by about 40 years, with OHLE and motorways removed. The project was started by "Carinthia", and is described by him here https://carinthia.sftt.co.uk/routes-cg.php.  Since he is no longer able to complete it, I have taken it over (with his guidance). It is still a "work in progress", with the first phase being from Carlisle to Carstairs (where many passenger trains split for different destinations in Scotland) and on to Law Junction (where many freight trains        split). Further phases will see the regression on to Motherwell, and then to Glasgow Central. Much of the trackwork for these phases is already in place, but not all scenery has been completed/regressed. Hence, it is driveable throughout.
The Manuals for the scenarios were omitted: download them from here: SOB Scenario Packs 1 and 2

Quick Drive scenarios from Carlisle, Carstairs and Glasgow (for passenger and goods trains) are included. A number of other scenarios are included with the route, and further ones will become available shortly.

As well as the passenger stations, goods yards and carriage sidings, there are (and will be) a number of facilities for loading/unloading freight. These are/will include coal mines, power stations, minerals terminals, container facilities, plus non-working timber, oil, and chemical terminals. Many of the Lanarkshire and Glasgow iron and steelworks are/will be modelled, providing good sources for scenarios. In addition, most stations had working water columns on each side of the main line, or in sidings/passing loops.

Scenarios

11:08am Kingmoor-Law Junction Part 2 (Revised)  45min

Your train is Class E, maximum speed 45 mph.
The Player train is the Western Lines of Scotland (Port Road) Black 5.

You are at Beattock, where you have just topped up your tender with water and your “Banker” is about to couple-up to the rear of your train. You will be continuing on from Beattock to Abington, where your “Banker”
engine will be detached.
