Introduction The East Coast Mainline (ECML) is one of Britain's busiest and most important lines, stretching from London, Capital of England, to Aberdeen and Glasgow, Scotland, via the Scots Capital of Edinburgh, the ECML is a key corridor for all things passenger. The route I am suggesting today sees the non-electrified but still stunning section between Edinburgh Waverley & Dundee Experience the East Coast Mainline, Britain's InterCity mainline connecting London, Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands, Operate the Modern Class 800 Bi-mode units, and operate the Class 170 & Class 158 DMUs, and the Classic BR Class 43 in the wonderful Inter7City livery. Rolling Stock I know 4 Included trains is a lot, but I'll explain shortly. Included: Class 800 'IET' (LNER Azuma) (Featuring the Wonderful Scottish Livery, as seen below) Class 170 'Turbostar' (Scotrail) Class 158 'Sprinter Express' (Scotrail) Class 43 'HST' (Scotrail Inter7City & LNER) Now, I do realise that 4 trains is a bit much, but I feel personally that this route deserves it. The route is so scenic and Is stuffing, and fully deserves everything it can get. And, the HST does make use of the pre-existing HST Shell etc. Potential DLC: Class 73/9 (Caledonian Sleeper) Operates a limited Sleeper service along the line. Class 43 Reskin & Scenario pack Pack of Reskins for the Class 43, adds Cross Country services (if the license is sorted), and a few "heritage" liveries, with a scenario set around a "heritage" day with the classic HST Liveries going around Fife. Class 68 (Scotrail) Operates some Scotrail services around the Fife Circle etc. Layers (In) N/A Layers (Out) The Class 170 & Class 158 could both be added as AI Layers onto Glasgow Cathcart Circle. The Class 800 could also be re-used on Cathcart, representing the 1tpd LNER service to Glasgow. Re-use of Rolling Stock: (From other routes) The class 43 (LNER/SR) would both make use of the pre-existing Shell of the Class 43, from Great Western Express. (From this route) Class 158 The Class 158 could be reused on other routes as the Class 158 or Modified into a Class 159. This could see use on routes on the Scotrail, Northern, South-West, Great Western, East Midlands, Trans-pennine, Wales etc. Networks. The class 158 could (possibly) be re-used on West Cornwall Local, in the appropriate livery. Class 170 The Class 170 can be used on the Scotrail, Northern, South-West, Southern, Anglian, East Midland, West Midland, Wales, Cross-Country, London Overground & Chiltern Networks, with potential conversion to the Class 171, 168, & 172/0 or /1. Class 43 The Class 43 could be re-used all across the National Rail network, From Aberdeen to Cornwall Class 800 Can be re-used as any IET locos, across numerous Operators.

AI Services A lot of these trains start as AI services before reaching the in-game start point, and it would be good to be able to spawn a few minutes before the train arrives and see it pull in. There are also some non-player AI services, namely the AI Scotrail's to Tweedbank. And LNER services towards London that Terminate at Edinburgh. Depot The Haymarket Depot sees ECS operations, involving the Scotrail Stock. Final Words So why this route? Well I have wanted this route for a while, and I did suggest it in the past, however this is a remastered version, with more details etc. I also seen a cab ride video on the line (albeit to Aberdeen) posted by another user, and decided to suggest it. It also lets us see the stunning scenery of Fife, and two wonderful pieces of Engineering, the Forth & Tay bridges. As for Rolling Stock; The Class 43 Is a classic train which somehow is only on one route. And, due to the fact both Scotrail and LNER had/have them, it makes for good use. As for the Classes 170 & 158, these trains operate most Scotrail services up these lines, and these trains set up routes all over the UK. And the 800 is part of the highly-requested IET/AT300 Family of trains, alongside the Class 395. And the 800 sets-up InterCity routes all over the UK, along with the 43. Thanks for reading.
