As part of the LION project (“FaceLift, Integration, Optimization, ReconfiguratioN“), new double-decker rush hour “HVZ-D” (Hauptverkehrszeit-Doppelstockzug) relief trains were created with the new 2nd class double-deck coaches that were released by the new NDW. These consist of six or ten carriages and are coupled together with two converted Re 420 locomotives at each end. These trains have primarily replaced the previous RBe-540 services. In contrast to the DPZ compositions.
This Add-On for Trainsimulator contains reproductions of this beautiful engine including cab and working controls. These engines have full ZUB and Requested Stop compatibility with Rivet Games’ Routes.
