About This Content

The new generation BR 442 ‘Talent 2’ comes to Train Simulator, perfect for the Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route.

Built by Bombardier and introduced in 2009, the successor to the ‘Talent’ was put in to service by Deutsche Bahn to replace older EMU types and loco-hauled trains on both S-Bahn and Regio services. A total of 397 units have so far been manufactured, with 325 ordered by Deutsche Bahn.

The four-car EMUs primarily operate on Germany-Austria routes, with 37 units introduced to the Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route in August 2013. Individual cars are coupled and articulated via shared bogies and have a top speed of 160 km/h (100mph).

The BR 442 ‘Talent 2’ for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn Regio livery with grey and white accents, and features SiFa driver vigilance, AFB, PZB and LZB cab signalling, and passenger view.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the DB BR 442 ‘Talent 2’ on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

This add-on is basically awesome. You can't really fault about this train to be honest. It accelerates and deccelerates very quickly and the cabin view is definitely one of the best where the route map is a nice touch (Though it 's a bit blurred if you set the setting to Full HD for the resolution if I am not wrong.) and so are the seats , tables and the interior panellings. As for the cockpit , the level of detail is definitely much better than the commuter trains that DTG had released over the past few years (BR423 , BR424 , BR426) and cockpit is nicely finished too. Go and buy this add on without a second thought. You won't regret it and trust me , you 're going to have a good time with it by running it on the Munich-Garmisch Partenkirchen route , the Berlin-Wittenburg route if you want some realistic operations or any other German routes you can think of if you are not too concerned about it.

I bought this in a sale because I wanted to broaden my horizons from the UK railways. I'm glad I did.

The model looks good, the drive is easy and, considering I've never seen the unit in real life, it feels right somehow.

Score 8/10
