Scenarios

There are 5 main scenarios provided with a number of sub scenarios.

Scenario Description Easy Mode
Perfect Everything should run like clockwork (user errors excluded). No failures or delays. Yes
Beginner As Perfect but, some minor delays may be experienced Yes
Standard As Beginner plus temporary speed restrictions. Also small risk of major disruption No
Difficult As Standard plus one of 9 line closure events will be in place. No
Bad Weather As Difficult but more so! Slippery rails and other problems to deal with. Slightly greater risk of major disruption No

Note: for best effect it is recommended that you link the IECC beep sound to the 'other equipment messages' in the f3 ‘Messages’ option. You must un-tick the pop-up message box otherwise you may lock up the sim. See here for instructions.

Sub-Scenarios

Line Closures

One of the following closure events may occur under the Difficult option above.

- Haymarket North Tunnel closed

- Suburban Lines Engineering Possession (Niddrie W Jn - Craiglockhart Jn - Gorgie Jn)

- Forth Bridge Engineering Possession (down)

- Forth Bridge Engineering Possession (up)

- Innerwick to Grantshouse Engineering Possession (up line)

- Waverley platforms 20 & 21 blocked

- Dunbar Engineering Possession up and down main

- Grantshouse Engineering Posession down lines

- Drem up line: broken rail

Major Disruptions

There are three major Disruption scenarios within the Sim which may occur in Standard, Difficult and Bad weather launch options. The probability of one occurring is quite low (1:50 to 1:30) chance and only one scenario can occur at a time. However, it is possible for a second event to occur after the first is resolved.

Note that the - if, which and when - are set at launch so relaunching a saved game will have this hard coded into it.

The "when" can be any time after 2 hours and before 22 hours from starting a timetable.

Airport Tripwire

The scenario is that Edinburgh (Turnhouse) airport trip wire breaks, closing the line till engineers resolve the problem.

An audible alarm will sound (if you have set it up to do so - see above) and a light will flash. You can cancel this by clicking on the flashing light.

A sequence of events will be reported to you as the investigation proceeds.

You can divert trains via Winchburgh if you wish.

Winchburgh Tunnel Alarm

The scenario is that Winchburgh Tunnel flood alarm goes off, closing the line till engineers resolve the problem.

An audible alarm will sound (if you have set it up to do so - see above) and a light will flash. You can cancel this by clicking on the flashing light.

A sequence of events will be reported to you as the investigation proceeds.

You can divert trains via Dalmeny if you wish.

Musselburgh Wires Down

The scenario is that there is a fault with the OH at Musselburgh, closing the line till engineers resolve the problem.

A sequence of events will be reported to you as the investigation proceeds.

You are encouraged to divert trains via Millerhill . Note that the advanced phone call is required to avoid delays.
