Colton Granary Pickup - Ten grain cars need picking up from Colton Grain. Bring the grain cars back to the Auxiliary track specified in the instructions.

Colton Foundry Delivery - From the coal processing plant, Eagles Nest, 12 coal cars were delivered to be taken to the Colton Foundry. Branch speed is 20 mph.

Working the Colton Textile Mill - The Colton Textile Mill has a short delivery to be made. It can be a little tricky. Branch speed is 20 mph.

Shiloh Cement Delivery - Shiloh Cement is running low on coal. Taking three coal hoppers to Shiloh Cement is your assignment. You're already coupled to the coal cars so get going. Mainline track speed is 40mph, observe signals.

Shiloh Cement Delivery Return Trip - Bring the five empty coal hoppers back to Colton RR Yard from Shiloh Cement. Mainline track speed is 40 mph, observe signals.

Delivery To Shiloh Cement 2 - 14 covered hoppers are waiting on the Colton Yard auxiliary track. Couple to them and run them up to Shiloh Cement. Mainline speed is 40 mph. Observe signals.

Delivery To Shiloh Cement 2 (Part 2) - 14 covered hoppers are returning to Colton Yard with you. Track speed is 40 mph, observe signals.

Dugan County Granary Drop-Off - Part of your run to Tucker includes a Dugan County Granary drop-off of six covered hoppers. You are presently stopped on the mainline at Dugan County before uncoupling the six grain cars from the train. Do the drop-off and then re-couple to the train.

Tucker Auto-Fab Drop-Off - Your train is stopped at Tucker Staging en route to Westin to do a single drop-off at Tucker Auto-Fab. This is a little challenging because the boxcar to be dropped off is in the middle of your train.

Coal Thirsty Pine Bluff - Your train is momentarily stopped before the Pine Top junction awaiting permission to enter the Pine Top area before you head on to Pine Bluff Coal Mine with empty coal hoppers. Observe mainline and branch line speeds (40/20 mph respectively).

Limestone Delivery To Pine Top - Your train is momentarily stopped before the Pine Top junction awaiting permission to enter the Pine Top area before you head on to Pine Top Limestone Mine with six empty limestone hoppers. Observe mainline and branch line speeds (40/20 mph respectively).

Pine Area Deliveries - Your train is momentarily stopped at Pine Bluff staging to make two deliveries. Eight empty hoppers (four limestone and four coal) are to be delivered to Pine Bluff Coal Mine and Pine Top Limestone respectively.

Penn Heights Delivery/Pick-up - Replace the two boxcars at Penn Height’s Hawkins with two boxcars you’ve brought up from Colton. 20 mph branch line speed. Observe signals.

Coal Pick-up From Eagles Nest - Your engine is stopped waiting for permission to proceed just south of Eagle's Nest. Part of your assignment for this run is to pickup eight coal hoppers from Eagle's Nest and take your train to Westin Yard. When the scenario begins, that is your permission to proceed. Observe signals and mainline speed (40 mph). Yard speed is 15 mph.

Coal Run Pine Bluff to Westin - Arriving at Pine Bluff Coal Mine from Westin you are facing the wrong way for the return trip to Westin. Use the turntable at Pine Bluff to turn your engine around. Then take the eight coal cars on track number one and deliver them to Westin Aux at Westin Yard.

Westin Coal Foundry Delivery - Westin Foundry is asking for eight more coal cars to be delivered to their site. That's your job, so get to it!

Westin Bluffs Coal Pick-up - Westin Bluff is situated in the hills just beyond Westin. Take the Westin branch to Westin Bluff Coal Mine and bring back the eight coal hoppers ready for transport.

Take Train To Westin - 40 freight cars have been assembled and are bound for Westin. Observe track speed (40) mph and signals.

Grain Delivery To Colton - A grain train moved in partly from north of Westin and local granaries has accumulated enough empties to be moved to a regional classification yard south of Colton. The next stop for these 23 covered grain hoppers as part of that move is Colton.

Free Roam - No assignments, free roam.
