The sounds are bad, however the train itself is good AI for Munich to Augsburg, and the two Cologne routes available seperately.

This loco is a pain to drive. The acceleration/brake lever isn't notched at all, so most of the time you either accelerate or decelerate because you can't simply hit 0% throttle. Moreover, the loco accelerates unrealistically fast which makes it even harder to control (lots of driving quality penalties). And the scenarios. The point rewards for completing objectives are far too low which makes it impossible to even get a bronze medal. I recommend.... staying away from this addon.

A postitive DLC. It's a good train for S-Bahn Munich scenarios. It has good acceleration and braking. Just a few problems. 1. When you open the doors, the DB logo stays in the same place while the door moves. 2. Only 2 real scenarios for Munich-Augsburg (Not including training scenario). But still a good DLC.
