About This Content

One of Germany’s oldest railway lines comes to life in the beautiful and picturesque Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route for Train Simulator.

Set in the southern part of the German state of Bavaria, the 100km (62 mile) route is mainly single track throughout and runs from the country’s expansive capital city to the mountainous resorts of Bavaria, on the border with Austria. The first section of the line from Munich to Pasing, and on to Planegg, was opened on 21 May 1854, and throughout the same year further work continued to extend the railway to Gauting, Mühlthal and Starnberg.

Over subsequent years, more sections of the route were independently built to service local industries in and around the towns of Weilheim, Tutzing, Murnau and Partenkirchen; these sections were upgraded and merged in the early 1900s, and on 20 February 1925, an electric hauled train completed the first full run from Munich Main Station to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Munich S-Bahn Line S6 services serve the route, running south from Munich to Tutzing, where they terminate. Additionally, Intercity-Express (ICE) trains can be seen on the line, running from Munich to Innsbruck.

The Regionalbahn BR 426 is a popular train-set on the S6 Line, a train-set that is included with this route. Built by a consortium of Siemens, Bombardier and DWA, the BR 426 is almost identical to the BR 425, bar the BR 426 being a two-car unit rather than a four-car unit. The high powered, lightweight vehicles were designed for short to medium distance services, making them ideal units for the S6 Line. Features of the model include SIFA, PZB and LZB in-cab signalling and driver safety devices, in-cab indicators, cab controls and cab lighting.

The Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route is highly detailed and feature-rich, and incorporates night lighting, therefore will benefit from a higher PC specification than other Train Simulator add-ons.

This is truly amazing piece of modern computer art done by DTG, but it falls short on multiple counts. For example, they promised us all stopping quick drive that was never implemented, this is a serious backdraw for those whom wanted an all-stopper experience on this line. Everything on the multi-track Münich line is not accessible via the Quick Drive and you can't stop on these locations, there is even an annoying 60km/h limit on the 160km/h line that is very very close to the previous signal making it virtually impossible to slow down in time. The track is a good one hour and thirty minutes long considering the visual aspects the track is really nice. I don't recommend buying this unless this track is on a serious discount.

I rate this 5 out of 10. [Not recommended unless it is on sale.]

The track error was fixed in an update, I can state it today, 2016-04-14

I personally recommend the track to be bought together with the two other rotues and combining them together, only that way I can say this track is 10 out of 10, othewise buy it when it is on dscount.

I recommend to buy this route, If you are looking for mountain scenery and trains with strong DB's red color. I loved the way that train goes trough village after village, but was a bit disappointed about the quick-drives low options for starting station. There is only two of them: Garmisch of Munich. But otherwise the route is perfect for all who likes countryside's train-networks.

A very nice route that starts extremely busy, but changes to single track later on.

Nice scenery and landscapes, nice signalling. You can also drive ICE scenarios if you have the ICE add-on.

The ring sounds at the level crossings are really terribly bad.

There are 2 drawbacks, which appear only with the ICE scenarios:

- signalling is not fully correct, braking distance is not always long enough after a warning signal. So you have to redo the scenario, anticipating the signal to begin braking, which really kills the mood.
- the schedule is such that you have to drive at full line speed all the time, no leeway. This is boring and not realistic.

This route is highly detailed and set in a very beautiful part of Germany. The trains included are also nicely detailed and fun to drive. Overall, I would recommend this route.

I don't own many DLC's, but I like this one, especially the route. It's really a mindblowing piece of track. It does have some minor issues, the distance snow textures are quite blurry and the route isn't easy for every pc. The BR 426 is also not a light-weight, but the cab an the passview are really dissapointing. The cab is fully done with photo-textures, that doesn't look too good. The passview has also some photo-textures and low-quality textures. So, if you're interested in some beauty, don't look inside this train.
While my pc does almost every train on every route I have (that aren't a lot, but compare to routes like Hamburg - Hannover or the Woodheadroute) with a decent framerate, my pc doesn't score too good with this one.
Finally, the acts are well done, but a little bit tight. I can't get to every station in time, but I guess this are real-life timetables.
After all, I'd give this package a 8.5/10 (with not too much knowledge)

If you like single line operation, passengers stopping, express services and the skill required with German route you'll like this one. Comes with okay scenario, not bad not great their work but with some other rolling stock the workshop has you covered. Route has PZB that works as it should, Trains same deal.

From all routes, this is my favorite one with semmering. Good lenght, nice elevation, quite good speed areas and nice curves. I really enjoy driving this route to both direction. Night driving is best part.

When 60-75% sale come, take this.

This a very detailed route and is worth the money! The scenarios are good and there a few to choose from. The train is also really good as well as a slightly updated DB class 101. This route does need one or two more rolling stock.
overall 8/10
