[1960] Marlow Donkey Replacement

In 1 collection by GreatNortherner
Wycombe Branch Scenarios
7 items
This scenario takes place in one of the last years of the Marlow Donkey, the steam-hauled push-pull train between Marlow and Bourne End. In this scenario, the Marlow Donkey's engine and auto train push/pull car have been withdrawn for maintenance and the only replacement available was an old Pannier tank engine. You are in charge of this train now, first running an ECS movement from the mainline to Marlow, then prepare the train for the round trips on the Marlow branch. You've also been assigned to deliver some freight cars to Marlow.

Based on 1960 BR timetable, story and consists are made up.

IMPORTANT: You must have disabled Exit if Signal Passed at Danger in the game options due to a few uncooperative red signals.

30 minutes, very difficult due to tight timetable, plenty of shunting moves, and the not very powerful engine. The timetable for the last work order can be achieved without speeding or dangerously bumping into your wagons during shunting.

This is a fabulous scenario, with lots of shunting, and a very tight timetable. Alas and alack, I failed miserably. I was supposed to arrive at Marlow, to pick up passengers, at 7.12AM. I arrived at 7.20AM. Well, I like this scenario so much, am going to keep trying, but I really can't see how I can "shave off" 8 minutes! But don't let this put you off, it is great fun, try it.
