Buy Train Simulator: DB BR 442 Talent 2

 

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 train is really fun to drive and looks very nice. It is fairly similar to the BR 426 (the train included in the Munich to Garmisch - Partenkirchen route), but does sill look different. Overall I would recommend the loco (especially when on sale).

After the update today, December 17th 2015, the 442 is actually worth getting. They fixed the major issues that have been around since it hit the store over a year ago. Why DTG does it take you so long to fix simple bugs that should have never made it into the final product?

UPDATE: 3/22/15 - DTG updated the trainsset and the PZB and SIFA now works as I would expect while driving a German train. I rated this 7.5 out of 10 due to the systems but still recommended this train back I first reviewed this, now I up my rating to 9.5 due to I drove it more recently and was glad the problems I had was fixed.

This train is nice and takes off and slows down quickly. This train is really a must for any German route that has mountains. Unlike from the other German commuters that DTG made, the cab is very finished and detailed.

I would rate this 9.5/10 - Great train, good physics, well detailed, and good sounds!

I highly recommend this train set, and if for no other reason, then allow
me to give you two reasons: (1) Great Scenery; and (2) the color of the train.
No where, that I now of, will you see colors like these trains in the U.S.

PZB is broken, entering in 500hz restrictive mode without active 500hz magnet (signal is clear), and entering in 1000hz restrictive mode while in-cab signaling showing normal operation. Braking with 8 car composition doesn't meat safety standards - it's braking with just one loco and do it very slowly.

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

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.
