I've heard some comments on a number of YouTube videos that some people have been disappointed that the heritage traction railtour is currently missing from East Coastway (as NTP and the Mk2 stock have not yet been released on Preserved Collection). However following the release of WSR on Preserved Collection there is another solution which allows you to drive almost the entire route NOT just Lewes to Eastbourne. Motivated by the post "Class 09 at High Speeds" I thought I'd try something similar. I previously discovered (by accident) that it was possible to couple two trains together. I was driving a 101 DMU on Tees Valley and overshot the platform at Eaglescliffe... I reversed back and found the following (freight) service had arrived in the platform! I've since extended the thought process and utilised Scenario Planner to emulate a railtour on East Coastway. What I did was start a Passenger Service (AI) service formed of a Class 33 and WSR stock from Eastbourne. Starting at the same time a Player Service in a pair of Class 20's Light Engine at Hampden Park. I drew the the Class 20's past the Starter signal at the end of the platform. About 3 minutes later the 33 approached Hampden Park and stopped at the red aspect. I reversed the 20's back onto the 33 and coupled up. The next signal indicator showed a red aspect at about 8yds (the distance the 33 was from the Starter signal), but when I started to move the consist forward the next signal indicator changed to green 600+ yds (as the lead locomotive was passed the Starter signal). All clear then for a run to Brighton;-)) Working from the other end of the route it is possible to replicate the process with the Passenger Service starting from Brighton and Player Service at London Road. With regard to locos only the Class 37 appears to be unavailable as a Light Engine. The use of a dual braked 'translator' loco between air braked mainline locos and vacuum braked coaches is nowadays fairly commonplace at diesel galas on heritage railways. It is also prototypical on mainline operation for an ETH (Electric Train Heating) equipped loco to be coupled inside of freight locos when tours ran during the winter. For example during 1992 a series of eight "Wessex Wanderer" railtours ran with various combinations of freight locos and a Class 33 coupled inside. Other notable events have been diesel days over the Settle & Carlisle and Cumbrian Coast routes where the (standard) train loco in the form ETH fitted Class 47 would be topped by 'exotic' freight traction.
