[Alco S-2] Springfield Freight: The Yard (WS)

New Haven Springfield Line Scenarios
45 items
This scenario begins where the story in the two-part Springfield Freight scenario ended. This part, however, puts you in charge of the yard switcher's crew that has been tasked to break up the long freight train that you brought to Springfield in the previous two parts. You'll even meet the two GP9s that have just split off from that train while you're waiting at the roundhouse for the tracks to clear.

An hour of very challenging switching awaits you as you break up the train and deliver the cars to their destinations all over Springfield Yard, the Freight House and the B&M Interchange. There is little hand holding here, though the conductor will occasionally offer a friendly hint. However, the task list (press the F1 key) should suffice on its own. Take your time, look around on the map. Plan your moves, there is more than one possible way to finish this scenario. And mind the brakes, especially at the beginning your train is very heavy, almost too heavy for your single S-2.

Have fun!

I can't get past "Marshall cars 75764 to 73850 to BM Interchange." I think it's glitched.

Thanks a lot for sharing this sccenario, fantastic! I love when I have to figure out how to get things done without having every single instruction about where to drop and pick up the cars. I had to re-couple the empty gondolas to get them check out of the task list but hey, great job. 10/10. Can't wait for the sound bug to be fixed, I love the sound of this engine. Cheers :)

Great scenario, especially the way it links with the two that came with the route. Had to figure out where to temporarily store the two tank cars, but that's part of the fun.

Thanks for the kind comments, I'm glad to hear that the scenarios is working as intended. :-) The "BM cars" instructions were a bit easier to follow when there was actual BM stock in version 2, now one has to rely on the numbers in the task list a bit more.

Whew!! that took we a little over 2 hours to complete. Why, I got stuck on the instruction that mentioned putting the BN wagons No.##### to No.##### into BN Siding No.### and I thought it meant "JUST" the BN Box wagons, not the 2 wagons of pipes as well. :steamfacepalm:
But I am keeping the scenario in amongst my favourites as I do love those Shunting scenarios with "Marshall" instructions where you get to choose the order of play. A bit like a "Quest Game".
Thanks for the chance to give my old brain a workout :steamhappy:

Enjoyed this switching scenario and I liked how you extended the scenario that came with the route too. The switching was complex, but not too challenging. This is a good weekend scenario. Continue the great work with this route.
