One of Germany’s most modern diesel multiple units speeds into Train Simulator, with the ICE TD joining the popular ICE fleet.
Following the successful introduction of the Intercity-Express system across Germany in the early 1990s, Deutsche Bahn started plans to upgrade long distance services with higher speeds and raise comfort levels for passengers, and to replace locomotive-hauled regional services.
These developments resulted in three new ICE trains being built – the ICE 3, ICE T and ICE VT, the latter ‘VT’ standing for Verbrennungstriebwagen (internal combustion motor car). All three trains were developed alongside each other and shared common components and layout – noticeable differences on the ICE VT were its crescent-shaped bogie supports and the removal of pantographs.
The ICE VT – later to be more commonly known as the ICE TD – was built by a Bombardier and Siemens consortium, and a four-car configuration chosen, without a restaurant car. The first trainset was assembled in 1998 and in 2001, all 20 units were commissioned for Deutsche Bahn and today operate on many electrified lines in Germany, despite being diesel powered.
The BR 605 ICE TD for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn livery and features PZB and LZB signalling, SIFA and AFB driver vigilance devices, a tilting mechanism and passenger view.
The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the DB BR 605 ICE TD on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Hamburg-Hanover route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).
Next week we will be releasing an update for Train Simulator 2015 into open beta. The open beta will run for a week and allow players to provide feedback about the update before it is released. You will need to own Train Simulator 2015 to take part. We will provide full details next week of how you can join the beta.
The update contains the following changes:
FIXED: Task list on the 2D map not updating in real time
FIXED: Whistle boards activating in the wrong direction
FIXED: Inability to edit secondary speed limits
FIXED: The ability to raise and lower the Google Maps overlay in the World Editor
FIXED: Inability to finalise Workshop content
Added additional localisation support for video
Added support for TrackIR hardware
Improved performance and stability when using the Google Maps overlay in the World Editor
Added new system for character movement*
*The new character movement system will prevent characters from walking off of platforms and will generally smooth out character movements. Players may still witness characters acting in an undesirable way at certain stations. This is because we will need to specifically update the spawn points on certain routes in order to fully implement the new system. We plan to do this on a route by route basis in the future.
We will also be releasing a range of developer documentation for using the World Editor. This is advanced technical information aimed at people wishing to create third party content, however advanced editor users may also find this information of use.
