    I have to be stretching a bit... Don't want to share my CMP grain train yet again :)
    My entry doesn't focus much on the mid-consist Cab Forward, but there is one included!

    This would be the focus shot but meh.

    That scenario never loads for me. I spawn with no loco or train.

    I had the same problem so I downloaded the following and swapped them out in TSTools
    Class 47 DRS Pack
    https://www.dpsimulation.org.uk/dpsreskins.html

    Armstrong Powerhouse Northern Belle Pullman Mk1, Mk2 and Mk3 Pack
    https://backdatedtrainsim.weebly.com/coaching-stock.html

    Class 47790 Northern Belle (Nattydred)
    https://www.dpsimulation.org.uk/miscreskins.html
    My only small gripe is the coaches are un-named but I can live with that for now.
    Hope that helps.
    P.S. For a real treat swap out the 47 for the Class 57 Northern Belle. It' so much better.

    If it's missing then you do not have the AP43 pack. It is now discontinued but you can still download the extra stock pack with the 47 reskins.

    Wait, I have the AP class 43s (all 3 versions) so you aren't referring to an HST there. I guess you mean the class 47s
    When did AP remove the CL47 pack? I know they removed one recently but I thought that was the class 40 '40145' pack which I own (purchased from steam before removal).

    Apologies, when AP did scenario packs they were labeled AP1, AP2 and so on. AP43 was a scenario pack based on the Wherry Lines when the 47s worked the loco hauled services and the London-Yarmouth runs. They did reskins of multiple DRS and NB 47s that were included in that pack and they are the ones used on the Harrogate Loop scenario.

    Oh, ok thanks. They still do scenarios but on a separate site now.

    Yes the Powerhouse site. Unfortunately you won't find the reskins for the 47s on there.

    You can try emailing AP or this was the link I was provided with when asking who had the packs for a scenario I was making (so I wasn't making a scenario people couldn't play!)

    www.armstrongpowerhouse.com/free_download/AP43_Extra_Stock.zip

    You can change the AP43 part for each scenario pack.

    You can set the next theme just by thinking of one, whatever you want it to be, that will be theme. For example, if you want it to be freight trains in America, you can do freight trains in America. You can do any theme you want.

    I didn't enter this week because I hardly ever drive US routes or US freight even though I own 7 or 8 US freight routes.

    Same honestly, however recently I have certainly been trying to get into the US routes, because there is a lot to offer. I have a couple that I've been playing, and a couple I want to get when they are on sale.

    Yes, that's the only problem, it's a great feeling when you win but frustrating as hell not being able to take part. :(
