About This Content

The second-generation Deutsche Bahn ICE 2 is synonymous with stylish high speed train travel in Germany, and now you can take control of this cool express train in Train Simulator.

The ICE 2 is the second class of high speed train serving the German railway network, built between 1995 and 1997 as an enhanced high speed unit to its predecessor, the ICE 1. Its main purpose was to enable smaller train units to be built which could be coupled to or uncoupled from other units as needed. The resulting ICE 2 featured one power car, six passenger cars and an unpowered cab car with a top speed of 174mph (280km/h), instead of two power cars and up to 14 passenger cars as was the consist of the ICE 1.

The ICE 2 is similar in appearance externally to the ICE 1 but an airline-style seating arrangement provides enhanced passenger accommodation over its predecessor. The ICE trains are also fitted with a high standard of technology, including audio jacks for on-board music and radio, full air conditioning and some seats benefiting from seat-back video displays.

In total, more than 40 eight-car units have been built and each has passenger capacity for almost 400 people. The ICE 2 mainly operates within Germany with some units licensed to run in Austria and Switzerland.

The ICE 2 for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn white and red livery, and features a fully detailed cab and internal control panel, functioning AFB, PZB and LZB systems, in cab lighting and TSX standard features. It is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the ICE 2 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Munich to Augsburg line.

This train is extremely amazing, one of the best quality high-speed trains that are available for Train Simulator, the sheer amount of detail and functionality makes this train an outstanding piece in the jungle of DLCs that DTG have on sale. I must note other then the speed increase the train accelerates much more smoothly and it feels a lot more responsive, even though I consider that some track switching and tilt curve sounds do sound weird and less quality then the ones provided in the ICE 1 version.

I rate this DLC 10 out of 10. [Only buy it bundled]

Not as amazing as the ICE3, however the modelling and sounds are just as good.
