HST : ScotRail 7 Cities
Updated 19th August 2018
This reskin depicts the Ex-FGW/Ex-GWR HST sets in their current guise with ScotRail under the “7 Cities” branding. The sets are in use as ScotRail have committed to £475mil fleet upgrades as part of their current franchise. These have a larger capacity than the 170s and 158s they cascade, and have an overall InterCity feel in comparison.
Due to the reduced number of coaches, they are permitted 100mph max speed. The HSTs will easily accelerate beyond this so watch your speed!
A scenario for DPS' ECML North East is included. At Low Fell, it is not uncommon for the scenario to dump, so it is suggested to save 3 miles from Newcastle, and look to the right of the cab between 2.15 and 1.3 miles from Newcastle. Apologies.
