 The Historical Bit 
After the through express passenger service, the East-West Express, ceased running via Peterborough and Quorn in 1932, it was replaced by a rail car service which ran until 1938. That service was replaced by a passenger car attached to a freight service. The rail car service was restored in 1957 using a Brill rail motor. It ran a return service three days a week until 1969 when all passenger services on the line were permanently withdrawn.

During the 1960s the track speed limit on the line had been reduced to 30 or 35 mph but the rail motor service was given a special exemption to run at speeds up to 47 mph (its maximum possible running speed).

To display the data click any Line Index graphic, or go to the bottom of the page for all the session links (all links will open in this window).

Getting Started:
  1. If you have already closed the opening message window then the first step is to pause the session by pressing the  P  key.
  2. Next locate your loco. Either:-
    1. Open the Finder Tool (press  Ctrl   F ) and type, in the Name field, the name of the loco. For example RM57. Click the tick icon, OR
    2. Open the Driver List (bottom left of the screen) and select the loco from there - click the drivers Eye icon to jump to the loco.
  3. Take a few moments to get your bearings. Click Peterborough Data (this link will open in this window) to show the location details and track plans for Peterborough. In each location details page:-
    • the Tab HM White.png tab gives an overall summary of each location with a "potted" history (where available).
    • the Tab TM Grey.png tab reveals the invisible TM Track Marks for Drive To commands.
    • the Tab IN Grey.png tab lists all active industries and their commodities.

  3. After arriving at Quorn move the train to the Depot  Loco Shed , after turning on the turntable.

Driving Notes:
  • If the Rail Motor is unavailable then it can be substituted with the passenger cars and guard van stored in the Depot  Car Shed  and a suitable available loco from the depot. Track speed limits will then apply.
  • You have been given the authority to exceed the track speed signs when using the Rail Motor, except for those speed restrictions on bridges and in station yards, up to a speed of 47 mph.
  • The approaches to all locations are protected by invisible signals to prevent the AI Half Speed Slowdown Problem when approaching a signal at stop.
  • Trackmarks and industries have been provided for AI Drive To Trackmark, Drive via Trackmark and Drive to  Industry  commands. Click Location Index for details.
  • Manual (no AI) driving is possible. As a visual driving aid, a Caution warning sign has been placed at the location of the Main Approach Dn and Main Approach Up trackmarks. Click Location Index for details.
  • If driving manually in yards, you are responsible for correctly setting any catch points.
