RSSLO’s advanced DB BR 642, of Siemens’ popular Desiro Classic family, has come to Steam and Dovetail Games Stores for authentic regional service!

Built to serve the rural rails of Germany, the DB BR 642 introduced significant benefits over the previous loco-hauled stock, namely, shorter journey times, higher standard of comfort and reliability, and able to work under a plethora of conditions.

Each car features a low floor, providing step-free access from platform to train. From there, one car would be fitted with first class seating, and the other a multi-purpose area, where the W/C and wheelchair facilities were situated. Both cars shared a common bogie, this articulated design was not only safer, but reduced the overall noise and drag produced by the DB BR 642 when in motion. With a diesel engine under the floor, behind each cab, the DB BR 642 can quickly get up to its top speed of 120 km/h, and effective braking can ensure a rapid yet gentle stop, every time.

For Train Simulator, the DB BR 642 arrives in DB Traffic Red livery, complete with DB Regio branding, ready for service wherever required. RSSLO have packed the DB BR 642 full of complex features for you to master, including the step-by-step cold start sequence. Both a simple and advanced SIFA system are featured, so you can really step up your game if up for a challenge. PZB is also fully implemented, you’ll be changing modes directly from the control panel. Additionally, you’re even able to set up your radios.

Before you’re ready to start your journey, setting up the destination displays are an essential step for the passengers’ benefit, and then of course you’ll need to unlock the doors, without forgetting to lock them again!

What better way to test out the Desiro Classic than with a trio of Career scenarios for the Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route, which is currently 50% off, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to put the 642 through its paces, and you’ll have to endure some inclement weather along the way.

The DB BR 642 for Train Simulator is suitably present in the Pro Range, and is available now, so head to the Store for more details!
