File Details - North East Scot April 2020 (Covid-19 Special)

Title
North East Scot April 2020 (Covid-19 Special)
Description

Welcome to this rather special version of North East Scotland! This TT is taken from the UK's Lockdown period in amongst the COVID-19 Pandemic

A Couple Of Notes To Start With!
Not much has changed in real life, though there are minor things!
- Newtolhill Signal Box Has Been Abolished Stonehaven Now Works TCB To Aberdeen But It Doesn't Change Much.
- The Section From Aberdeen - Dyce Has Been Doubled and Dyce Box Abolished (and demolished), This, however, doesn't change anything
- Dunkeld Box has gone to the Inverness SC, but again doesn't affect much

The SIm Goes in Waves, having a rather Busy Period Before Everything goes quiet again, which makes it a very fun sim!
There is a lot of shunting throughout the day at Aberdeen Perth And Dundee so be careful of routing trains too early some of the shunts are quite Complex!

Aberdeen also has some (very) tight headways and trains depart a platform moments before another one enters so again keep a careful eye on them, and re-platform a train if necessary
I have left Platform Conflicts in for a nice Challenge!
