    Passenger - 101 (yes) New 142
    47 On mk2s

    Description:

    This being fairly local has a great variety of traffic, Freight yards, Semaphore and colour light signalling busy and quiet stations and Services that are self contained over short distances. Plus Bridges and tunnels in places for scenic variation.

    Stanlow Oil refinery despached oil by rail to various destinations up until the mid 1990s it had a dedicated fleet of 47s and 37s in Railfreight Petroleum livery with Mollusc themed names such as 'Strombidae' and 'Conidae'.

    Passenger trains ran Warrington to Chester both stopping and express. They also ran Hooton to Helsby and back to Hooton and Hooton to Chester via Capenhurst which in the present day is part of the Merseyrail System.

    I would think the mileage would suit TSW2 and the majority of stock needed already exists.

    I can see this layering quite well with NTP the loco variety could be altered though

    142 could layer on to TVL as well as the 47 and tanks maybe as a thought?
