Chatham, Kent – 10th October 2019 Train Sim World welcomes its first split track with the Rhein-Ruhr Osten: Wuppertal – Hagen route add-on, including the S8 S-Bahn and the Main Line between the two stations.

 

The route diverges shortly after leaving Hagen, giving you the choice of carrying passengers along the bustling, riverside S8 S-Bahn for classic stopping-service operations or hauling freight along the urban Main Line. Home to automated services in addition to your train, the route merges again near Schwelm before continuing down to Wuppertal. As you journey along the Wupper river towards your destination, look north to watch the elevated Schwebebahn – a stunning suspended rail system that carries commuters over the water.

 

The beautiful scenery of the North Rhine-Westphalia region is matched only by the lovingly recreated traction running up and down the route. The DB BR 422 joins the Train Sim World roster as a brand new experience for all our players. The familiar BR 185.5 is now freshly decked out in a striking MRCE livery, proudly hauling newly licensed Sggmrss container wagons with authentic Hamburg Sud and Hapag-Lloyd branding. We’ve also included cross-compatibility with other German Train Sim World add-ons, so collectors will benefit from more scenarios and the ability to swap locomotives on certain services.

 

Powered by Unreal Engine 4® technology and Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine, incorporating a simulation underpinned with expert technical knowledge and real-world data, the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make the trains feel just like the real thing.

 

Train Sim World: Rhein-Ruhr Osten is available now on PC via Steam, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 – here’s what’s waiting inside:
