In 1999, after acquisition by FirstGroup, Great Western Trains applied a revised livery to their existing stock without the need for repainting! This involved the use of vinyl decals applied to the lower sides of the HSTs. The existing green and ivory colouring remained but the decal featured a central gold stripe and a series of parallel green lines which had the appearance of fading the ivory into the green. This early green and gold livery was referred to as the “fag packet” (British slang for cigarette packet) livery due to its similarity to certain cigarette packets of the time, and this is the version recreated in this add-on. The “Night Riviera”, a sleeper service from Paddington to Penzance, retained the green and gold livery until 2007..

No Sleep Tonight - Career System Scenario
It's just after midnight, and you are required to haul the 1A40 2345 Paddington to Penzance sleeper service which is delayed. Another problem is that the sleeper stock is unavailable, so your train is formed of a HST. Starting from Paddington, stop at Reading and Didcot Parkway. You will be relieved at Didcot Parkway by another driver.
Semi-Fast Stand-In - Career System Scenario
Due to a shortage of class 166 DMUs, First Great Western have had to stand in with the use of a Green and White-livered HST. Your task is to take the train on a morning semi-fast service, from Oxford to Reading. Your only stop will be Didcot Parkway.
When the Snow Falls - Career System Scenario
It's a freezing cold afternoon in January, and you are required to battle the weather with the last leg of a HST bound for Paddington. The snow is falling heavy, visibility is minimal, so all concentration is required. It may not be as simple as Didcot to Paddington, mind!
