Official website: Click HERE

This page has the latest version of the route, updates and fixes - as well as extra scenarios made for the route.

I will be happy to host any scenarios made for this route - use the "Contact" page to get details

The Main route: North Lincolnshire v04-2021

Updated Version: 10th April 2021

Because of the size of the route I (Wotawally) have decided to split the download into two parts. You need both parts for the route to run correctly. Also recommended is John Kirk's Scenario Pack 

Just click on the pictures to download, then use the Utilities Package Manager to install

The Route

The Assets

Latest News

This month I have improved the scenery to the west of Retford, plus some minor aspects of scenery at various points on the system, and continued to add signal wires and point rods (which will take some time to complete). If you downloaded last months update, I don’t think you need to download this one, unless you intend to download the scenario “09:52 Sheffield-Cleethorpes” which will malfunction on an old version of the route as I have smoothed the incline close to Thonock Sidings.

I try to produce an update at the start of each month.

Note: I have not updated the route on this page for several months so there will be a lot more scenery improvements than John mentions

Fix to prevent TS2020 crashing on exit

Since the update to TS2018 some files have been causing the game to crash on exiting a scenario. One such file is in the RichardMaxted folder and will affect any route that uses his Narrow Gauge assets.
I have fixed the file affected by the TS2018 update and you can

Just unzip the file and drop it into your railworks folder

Quick Drive now available for the route:   NLincs_QD_v2.rwp

These Wotawally made Quick Drives cover just about the whole area of the route. I have not included any AI or Static Consists at the moment because of the complexity of the network and I am not sure how to achieve what I ideally want.
Also, because of the number of options for different parts of the route it has been impossible to check every one. Please report any problems with pathing etc to me, and I will attempt to sort them out.

Leicester-Skegness Summer Special

by Rudolf Hucker

Tested  with v09-2017

In high summer, on Saturdays only, an EMT HST sets off from Derby bound for the seaside town of Skegness. It is the last vestige of numerous loco-hauled services that, every summer Saturday, would bring thousands of holidaymakers from Industrial towns across the Midlands, South Yorkshire, Manchester and even a service from King's Cross then, after a swift turnaround, carry thousands back at the end of their week by the sea.

From just outside Boston you will take the train to Skegness, run around and prepare for the return working. AI traffic at Skegness is unprototypicaly light as I was unable to get it to work properly no matter
how much I fiddled.

March 1963.

Drive a Class 37 Cleethorpes to Kings Cross service as far as Boston. You will need to run the loco round the train at Grimsby Town and will also be stopping at Louth, Willoughby and Firsby.

Timing is very tight, so you won't be able to hang around.

You are in charge of the 16:57 Semi-fast service from Grimsby Town to Boston hauled by your B1 loco on Friday 10th September 1954.

The schedule is fairly tight so you can't afford to hang around admiring the wonderfully varied Lincolnshire countryside.
With good driving from Firsby to Boston you should be able to reach Boston 5 minutes early without exceeding the speed limits.
