Train Simulator Scenario for the GN Cascadian Route:

GN Train 5 - The Cascadian (Spokane - Seattle daily local)

1954 Timetable - Summer and Winter


for DTG Train Simulator by Michael Stephan



Scenario Description and Important Notes
========================================

This scenario six-pack models the run of GN Train 5, the westbound Cascadian, GN's daily all-stops local from Spokane to Seattle. Due to the length of the route, the scenario has been split in three parts, each of which is available in summer- and winter setting.

The scenario is based on the 1954 GN public timetable. The Cascadian had just been classified as a "Streamliner", which in its case meant mainly repainted and rebuilt heavyweight equipment and a pair of F7s leading.

Your timetable is pretty tight in the east- and west ends of the route, but fairly relaxed up in the mountains where almost all of the stops are flagstops (which means you will frequently "miss" stops when you don't get flagged to stop).

Duration:        1st part: 45 minutes, 2nd part: 90 minutes, 3rd part: 100 minutes
Difficulty:    at times tight timetable, random flagstops
Type:        stopping passenger with flagstops
Tasks:        mainline passenger run over entire route


A Note on Flagstops:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Many of the stops on your schedule are listed as flagstops. That means, you will only have to stop if signaled by the local station agent. In this scenario series, this is modeled by the position of the train order signal (see the route manual for more details if you don't know what that means). If it is up (green light), you can pass through without stopping. If the board is down (red light), you have to stop to let passengers board or pick up mail. Needless to say, you really should approach all flagstops carefully so that you can still stop at the depot when you get flagged.

Your conductor will warn you before each station whether the next stop is on flag, or a regular scheduled stop.

And no, your "F1" task list will not help! When a flag stop gets called, it will only show up on your task list when you are already within visible range of the station and its train order signal. Your conductor will however assist you with watching the train order boards and tell you when he can see them.

Please note that the flagstops in these scenarios happen at random! Each time you run the scenario, you can encounter different places where you might get called to stop. It might even happen that you can blast through all of them (these are very remote places, after all).

One final note: You will not be able to get a "successful completion" of the scenario (that green check mark at the end). This is because I had to do extensive "scripting surgery" on the scenario in order to make the flagstops work.

I owe great thanks to Wayne Campbell, without whose groundbreaking scenario work on the Kingwood Branch none of this would have been possible.
