I'm having this problem once again where I can't settle, so here's an even newer game (under the same company name).
Shot #1: Brierley Road and Rail Ltd. quickly branched out from the humble beginnings of a coal branch from Brierley Hill Coal Mine to Peterborough B Power Station, and by 1926 had a total of six trains operating over coal and passenger routes. To accomodate for the future, Mr. Worley, a powerful and influential man and CEO of Brierley RR, ordered the building of a big Train Depot just off the mainline between Peterborough and Brierley Hill. Here we see the yard, currently fairly empty, as BRR 4-4-0 No. 3401 City of Preston
storms past with an express to Peterborough.
Shot #2: Despite the company being named after the local Brierley Hill, Mr. Worley announced his intentions at Peterborough with a large station. To the west is the large sidings complex to welcome trains for Peterborough B Power Station. In this busy shot, we see City of Preston
leave Peterborough for the depot, whilst sister BRR 4-4-0 No. 3402 City of Peterborough
awaits clearance for a platform. At the sidings, we see BRR 0-6-0 No. 7261 arrive with loaded coal wagons from Peterborough Coal Mine. An interesting part of this shot is the tunnel under the sidings, which links the line to Peterborough and Stockton Coal Mines to Peterborough Station; this was created in a recent development to link the town of Stockton to Peterborough. Trains leave Peterborough, venture through the tunnel and up onto the Stockton-Peterborough Line at Sidehouse Junction.
Shot #3: This train can be seen in this shot of the complicated depot setup at Peterborough Coal Mine. With two coal mines in the close vicinity, BRR decided a joint depot would be appropriate, but with trackwork for the passenger route becoming more complicated, this very interesting setup was decided upon. The train for Stockton Coal Mine, when requiring a visit to the depot, sweeps under the main line in a curve, and back up onto the depot sidings. On departure, it rejoins the mainline beyond the bridge over this curve. In this shot we see BRR 0-6-0 No. 7263 Stockton Flyer
pass the complex.
More to come from this one. Peterborough is quickly becoming like Manchester, a busy terminii with the opportunity to extend past it for stations to the east. I'll keep you posted
