This is Phase 3 of the Gainsborough map, all files included and ready to play. Welcome (back) to Gainsborough
Gainsborough is a small market town, located in rural Lincolnshire, some 15 miles north of the county capital - Lincoln. Public transport in these areas is sparse, compared to other, more densely populated towns and cities in the UK. Making profitable and regular public transport here is a real challenge!
The main operator here is Stagecoach East Midlands - who operate 2 town routes, the 1 and 2, which (pre-covid) each operated every hour, as well as a handful of more rural services to Retford and Doncaster - as well as "Interconnect 100", between Lincoln and Scunthorpe - All of which operate hourly at best. v In OMSI, the network has been somewhat enhanced to make things more varied and busier, whilst trying to keep that rural vibe. The operator is "Lincolnshire Roadcar", who operated almost all services in Gainsborough until they were taken over by Stagecoach, as part of the acquisition of the Yorkshire Traction group in 2005.
Phase 3 see's the completion of Interconnect route 100 as far as Lincoln via Saxilby - a journey time of around 50 minutes, as well as minor tweaks to existing areas from phase 1 and 2, and route 104 now starting/ending at the depot, rather than Corringham Road roundabout. Drivable routes are:
100 - Gainsborough to Saxilby to Lincoln (Every 60 minutes, takes around 50 minutes)
101 - Gainsborough to Park Springs (Every 60 minutes, takes around 25 minutes)
102 - Gainsborough to Park Springs (Every 60 minutes, takes around 25 minutes)
103 - Gainsborough to Morton (Every 60 minutes, takes around 30 minutes)
104 - Gainsborough to Depot via Corringham Road (Every 60 minutes, takes around 20 minutes).
590 - Park Springs to QE High School (School service - Daily Mon-Fri, takes around 35 minutes)
