IC 2000 – 2020
It is the biggest modernization in the history of SBB long-haul traffic: The 341 IC2000 double-decker coaches are being upgraded for a further 20 years in service. The modernization includes implementing contemporary and future customer requirements, complying with Swiss legal requirements concerning access for people with disabilities and the modernization of vehicle technology.
The IC2000 trains are the backbone of the long-haul intercity fleet and were purchased between 1997 and 2004. They operate on the Geneva – Bern – St. Gallen and Romanshorn – Brig routes, among others. The IC2000 fleet will continue to be of central importance after the modernization to meet the increasing demand for seats.

NOTE: It is possible to mix the IC2000/2020 wagons with EWIV rolling stock by Rivet Games. With the following limitations:
– We have not tested every possible combination. Please be advised that some things, like lighting, could be malfunctioning in certain combinations.
We have changed all scripts and most of the meshes and textures to make the add-on more agile and playable on system resource heavy routes like Zurich-Olten. A PC with at least a modern Intel 7 or 9 series processor or AMD Ryzen 7 or 9 is preferred with 16Gb of ram (32 is better). GPU should be Nvidia 980 series or up. There is no ‘perfect solution’ as the combination of route, traffic and PC config will vary and if you find that your system struggles please try lowering your in-game graphics settings and work your way up from there.
Scenarios for SBB Route 1, Lake Constance and Zürich-Olten are available HERE (more to come).
