Thanks for all your kind comments. The wait times are indeed a bit long at some stations -- maybe a slight discrepancy between real world timetable and the RW route, or the fact that the timetable that I used was probably written for a steam-engine pulled train.

However, in average the wait times should be okay if you do the gear changes on the 111 as instructed in the manual: Throttle up, get to 15 mph, zero throttle. Wait for RPM to fall below yellow zone, switch to 2nd gear, wait a couple of seconds. Throttle up, get to 25 mph. Zero throttle again, wait for RPM to drop, change up to 3rd, wait another 2 seconds. Repeat that process when you reach 40 mph and you'll finally be in fourth gear. Run the car like this and it'll take you a lot longer to get from A to B. It's also more challenging and entertaining.

Excellent scenario, I agree with the comments about the long waits but that's really minor as I don't mind since I enjoyed the scenario so much. Really look forward to Part 3.

A big thank you, dear GreatNorthemer, to have made ​​available an early version free of the AI. This is a great scenario and I had a lot of fun to drive. Congratulations
