Quick Drive Scenarios

Dual Era Quick Drives: Great Western Railway, and, post 1947, British Railways.
In the QD Drive Menu there are 2 dedicated categories of drivable trains for the route: 'WRJL GWR Consists' and 'WRJL BR(W) Consists'.
These use a prefix as a guide to an appropriate consist type:
BR Gds0 - Goods Loco Only.
BR Gds1 - Longish goods train
BR Gds2 - Shorter goods train
BR Gds3 - Short goods for a branch line
BR Pas0 - Passenger Loco Only
BR Pas1 - Express train
BR Pas2 - Stopping train
BR Pas3 - Branch passenger 1 or 2 autocoach/coach

GW -ditto-

The only GWR locos included with the required routes are the Halls. However many third party products are supported.

The same prefix system is used for the QD Start locations as an indication of what type of train might be appropriate.
Pas0 loco only will usually start at a shed and drive towards coaches at a platform or in carriage sidings.
Pas1 trains will usually use the Centre lines at smaller 4 track stations and the Main Line on 4 track sections.
Pas2 trains will use the Platform lines at smaller 4 track stations and the Relief Line on 4 track sections.
Pas3 will be a Branch line expecting a short train.
Gds0 will expect to be driven towards a Yard with probably a choice of wagons.
