These routes are a regression of the DTG “North Wales Coastal” to the BR Blue period, particularly in the year 1980, (together with the Conwy Valley Branch from Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog for the Conwy Valley version).

The regression starts at Llandudno, heading towards Crewe. Phase 1 finishes at Chester, with Phase 2 to Crewe still to be completed. Throughout the work, many of the industrial plants (and the power station/coal mine needed to generate the energy required to operate them) have been modelled. Surviving goods yards and exchange sidings have been recreated.

The route is described in the following sections:
1. Llandudno to Llandudno Junction (exclusive)
2. Conway to Llandudno Junction (inclusive)
3. Llandudno Junction to Colwyn Bay (inclusive)
4. Colwyn Bay to Abergele (inclusive)
5. Abergele to Rhyl (inclusive)
6. Rhyl to Prestatyn (inclusive)
7. Prestatyn to Talacre (inclusive)
8. Talacre to Mostyn (inclusive)
9. Mostyn to Holywell Junction (inclusive)
10. Holywell Junction to Flint (inclusive)
11. Flint to Shotton (inclusive)
12. Shotton to Mold Junction (inclusive)
13. Mold Junction to Chester (inclusive)
14. Chester to Crewe (inclusive)
15. Llandudno Junction to Blaenau Ffestiniog

Quick Drive scenarios for passenger consists from and to Llandudno, Llandudno Junction, Rhyl, Chester and Blaenau Ffestiniog Stations, and for goods from Chester, Mold Junction, Point of Ayr Colliery, Rhyl and Llandudno Junction, are included. A number of other scenarios are included with the route.

As well as the passenger stations, goods yards and carriage sidings, there are a number of facilities for loading/unloading freight. These include a coal mine, power station, minerals terminal, plus non-working timber, oil, chemical and coal terminals.

All the markers for the route are given in the Manual Appendices – again useful for scenario creators.

To re-emphasise - Once you have downloaded and installed this Route, Manuals and Asset Packs (which include the Station Signs, General signs, Signal box signs and Route Markers), the blueprint files (which need to be present on the recipient’s computer) have to be copied and pasted into the relevant folders – a batch file to do this automatically is included, it is a simple operation, and a Readme is included.
