FM 47s are back on it, although its the Blue Pullman pair, 47709 and 47712. Along the way, you will encounter other interesting movements such as 47816 dragging a 456, EPS 37s dragging a Eurostar and a 20 + 37 utilising the spare daytime path on Dungy - Willesden.

Wicked! I think this will be such a great activity as a Serco train covering virtually the whole route with prototypical real-life AI trains with the previously mentioned 'bonus' 456 drag, Eurostar drag, Fastline 56s and Nuclear Flasks etc! Shame about the need for the Great Electric Locos pack as very few people in the community have that as the locos are not really as good as the freeware stuff. For example there are only a couple of UK locos in it and those appear not to be as good as the freeware stuff.

As stated you require LSE, LBE and Great Electric Locos to be installed however here are the UKTS URLs:

Where are the EPS 37s from? They don't appear to be in the list, nor does the wagon between them and the Eurostar.

My bad - you'll only need 37603 ;) and thats File ID 8404 The wagon between the Eurostar and the 37 is one from LBE Addpack :)

Final draft - activity sent to UKTS now :)

You will be driving both 47712 and 47709 in top and tailed mode on this SERCO trip around the South of England. Firstly, you must wait for the 10:01 Norwood Jn - London slow service to clear the road. You will be given priority out of Selhurst over 47816 on the 10:30 456 move. After Norwood Junction, you will be riding yellows up to Bermondsey as there is a fast Thameslink/FCC train in front of you. Upon arrival at London Bridge, either reverse when you stop or if you are on MSTSBin, hit F5, chose the rear loco and press 1 twice to switch locos. You must perform this before 10:15 otherwise you will lose your path and the 10:16 and 10:18 services will leave London Bridge before you, then you'll have to wait for various South Eastern units to clear the lines. If you leave on time, you will be given greens and the fast line again. You must stop at Orpington for a refreshment and to await the unit from Sevenoaks to cross over onto the slow lines. The road will clear at 10:30. After this, you will have a clear run to Tonbridge, where you will reverse again and take the line to Redhill. Then, up to South Croydon to pick up a member of crew, reverse there and take the Weald line to Eridge. Here, you will reverse in the bay platform, and you will have to gain permission to the Spa Valley by performing a signal check. Then, you should have a fairly clear run up to Grove Park, where you will drop off a crew member then proceed into Hither Green Loco Holding Sidings. Stop when all of your train is in the siding. Enjoy!

Times are;

Selhurst RMSD 10:00
Norwood Jn 10:03 (Fast Line)
Forest Hill 10:07
London Bridge 10:14 - 10:16
New Cross 10:20 (Fast Line)
Hither Green 10:23
Chislehurst Jn 10:26
Orpington 10:29 - 10:31
Sevenoaks 10:37
Hildenborough 10:39
Tonbridge 10:42 - 10:45
Penhurst 10:51
Redhill 11:04 - 11:05
South Croydon 11:14 - 11:15 (Wealden Line)
Eridge 11:30 - 11:30
Tunbridge Wells 11:45
Tonbridge fast line 11:51
Orpington 12:05 (Slow Line)
Grove Park 12:24 - 12:25

Nice - seems like it will be a great 2.5 hours :p Thank goodness you can now make MSTS 'Bin' rear cabs easily with the utility as it means we won't have to use reverse therefore being able to change locos.
