Project Rush Hour

About the Project

Project Rush Hour sets out to push various routes to capacity. With unusual services, looping, adverse signalling, lots of passing traffic and slow freight services, these scenarios push routes they're built on to the limit and challenge you to keep Britain's railways moving.

Part One

The Phase One set of scenarios covers Railways of Devon and Cornwall, in just the Devon area. These scenarios are set in the Wessex Trains era, with services operated mostly by Class 150 and Class 158s. First Great Western services are still in the hands of Valenta HSTs for the most part, with just a small trickle of MTU HSTs running about. There may be more scenarios produced for this phase in the future. See the selection available below:

2W07 - London Waterloo to Crediton

By GenericTS for Railways of Devon and Cornwall

This scenario is a part of Project Rush Hour

You've taken over from a driver that's out of hours here at Honiton and will take it through to Crediton, dividing the rear train at Exeter St. Davids to go to Paignton. Once arriving into Crediton, you'll then need to move into the siding to allow the service behind to pass.

  • Duration: 135 Minutes

2A81 - Exmouth to Paignton

By GenericTS for Railways of Devon and Cornwall

This scenario is a part of Project Rush Hour

In the late evening, take this stopping service all the way around to Paignton in this single Class 150. The line is busy as ever so you will end up being held up along the way.

  • Duration: 135 Minutes

5D06 - Exeter Depot to Totnes

By GenericTS for Railways of Devon and Cornwall

This scenario is a part of Project Rush Hour

Prepare your train from cold here at Exeter Depot before waiting your slot out onto the busy Riviera Line and get through to Totnes, where another driver will take a stopping shuttle back to Dawlish Warren. Keep an eye out as there's lots of freight about.

  • Duration: 50 Minutes

Part Two

The Part Two set of scenarios covers North Wales Coast Line (+ Holyhead & Conwy Valley). These scenarios are set in the future Transport for Wales era (2020 or so), with services operated by a wide variety of stock, including a large fleet of Class 67 loco-hauled operations. All lines have had a massive boost in train services with the introduction of Llanrwst North to Llandudno, Bangor & Holyhead to Llandudno Junction services and various freight moves across the region. See the selection available below:

This phase is currently still work in progress, more scenarios will be added soon.

2L10 - Llandudno to Blaenau Ffestiniog

By GenericTS for North Wales Coast (+ Holyhead & Conwy Valley)

This scenario is a part of Project Rush Hour

The Conwy Valley has had a massive tourism boom in recent years, resulting in a huge increase in service along the length of the branch line. You'll be squeezing your Class 156 amongst the other traffic along the line on a fine Autumn day. Year: 2020

  • Duration: 85 Minutes
