Welcome to the weekend – It’s a Wessex Weekend.
I am extremely proud to present the Class 150/2 Wessex Trains Fleet pack for both Armstrong Powerhouse and Thomson versions of the Class 150/2.
Took me a day or two longer than originally planned, but I thought I’d update the Thomson/Oovee ones whilst I was doing the Armstrong Powerhouse ones. I also found a few of my earlier ones were in need of a bit of a tidy up, so I happily gave them a make-over too and now it gives me great pleasure to release them for the community in one big pack with a bat file included for easy installation.
So if you already have my previous Thomson ones, then I would recommend you download the pack and overwrite them, as you will be able to enjoy the updated textures that I did for them all.
Included are the following Liveries:
150219 – Cotswolds
150221 – Portsmouth Harbour
150230 – The Tamar Kingfisher
150232 – The Coastal Connection
150233 – Looe Valley Skipper

Another one whilst you all wait for the upcoming Wessex Pack.
Class 150280 – Valley Lines (University of Glamorgan/Prifysgol Morgannwg) has now been converted to the new AP 150/2 standard. I didn’t include this in the Wessex pack as I feel it would be the odd one out in the pack so decided to give this one its own solo outing.

Thanks for popping by and enjoy
While everyone is waiting on the upcoming Wessex Pack, I shall release this one into the wild.
The Arriva Wales Trains 10 Years of Service has been converted over to the Armstrong Powerhouse 150/2 standard.

Thanks for visiting
To celebrate the completion of the Wessex fleet. Rosgar Scenarios have updated their Snacktime number 09 exclusively for Caledonian Railworks. As always, we will have this one for 2 weeks ahead of everywhere else, so enjoy this one on us. 🙂
Rosgar Scenarios – Snacktime No 09 – Weston Wessex
A revised (and in some ways simplified) single scenario for TS2017 and the JT Bristol Exeter route.
All previous versions will now either go into the existing Retro Collection…. or be withdrawn!
Having just worked in on this train to Weston Super Mare your job is to take it back to Bristol where another driver will take over. This is a stopping service so you need to be on the ball with your station times. Do remember to prepare the cab first as well. This scenario now replaces any previous versions of this with one single rendition, however it is noted that the particular Class 150/2 default asset as used here (and needed by the reskins) is no longer available….
You are waiting for your departure at 13.29, as a late running HST will leave before you, but that must clear the single section ahead before you can go. The timings are a bit tight as already noted, so please don’t hang around any more than you have to!
Time 36 minutes approx
Enjoy the drive..

Thanks for visiting once again and enjoy.
I finally got there… The last Wessex 150 unit has now been completed. 150266 The Whitley Wonder is now ready to be released into the wild.
With 26 of them now published plus that 1 with the similar template design for the Class 150280 – Valley Lines – (University of Glamorgan/Prifysgol Morgannwg).
That now concludes the fleet being completed. In time I may pack them all up into one mega download and have a bat.exe file available for an easy of installation.
I would like to thank Rosgar for the bonus scenarios, John Walsh for the testing (Sometimes) 😉 and all the rest of you who have come here to download my work.
I shall be cracking on with other new projects in the meantime and if A.P. decide to change anything with regard to the current 150 set-up, whether it be folder tree etc, then I will try keep the Wessex pack up to date with that. Until that day I’m assuming it’s business as normal for the Class 150.
Now available to download here:-
What project will I start next? As I still have quite a few reskins up my sleeve yet. 😉
Thank you all for your continued support and I hope to have some of those aforementioned reskins out soon.
All the best.
With the news that Armstrong Powerhouse acquiring the rights to the Thomson/Oovee Class 150 – I thought I’d better get my butt into gear and finish these off. Here’s the 2nd to last Wessex finally finished.
Class 150265 The Falmouth Flyer – That just leaves the last one to do.. (Psst.. It’s already finished and that final one will be out later on today).. 😉

Once again – Thank you for your continued support and without you guys I wouldn’t be here.
Another exclusive for Caledonian Railworks from Rosgar Scenarios.
Today they bring us – Snacktime No 147 – Sleeper Surprise
A Snacktime scenario for Darren Harvey’s Aberdeen Angus freeware route available from: https://caledonianrailworks.wordpress.com/route/
Well this is a major surprise, train loco 47732 had failed at Aberdeen, but as it being still able to supply the ETH, then 33030 has been used up front for what was probably the only time a Class 33 ever worked the Caledonian Sleeper. This is IB16, is the 21:40 Aberdeen to Edinburgh portion on the 10th October 2000, and is a true event….Both other locos, the failed RES 47732 and the Dundee replacement (47790) also feature in this scenario.
We start at the platform at Montrose on this stage of the long journey South, it is intended that both of these engines will be removed at Dundee so the earlier you can get to there the better. So open those doors and lets get to work…
Around 40 minutes.

Thanks to Rosgar for the exclusive release & to the rest of you all for your continued support.
