    Attached is a picture for reference.

    In Nahverkehr Dresden, there is a station on the line that splits right off of the mainline past Riesa and Roederau. That station is Zeithain. I think we should add it because it has a lot more variety in services, the scenery appears to be already there, and we don't need to add any rolling stock (the RB45 that stops there uses a 143 which hauls 2 DoStos). It will add 15 roundtrips for a total of 30 more services.

    What do you think?

    EDIT: I have been made aware it's not as nearly functional as I thought. My comments about RB45 still apply though.

    END OF EDIT


    The station is currently 95% fully modelled as well as the area around it as detailed as anywhere else, even off into the distance. All the crossings are fully modelled and operational too. The only thing I can see that is missing is the station signage and OLHE. There is very little reason the station shouldn't be served by services and also accessible.
    If DTG are looking for a way to put the feeling of 'Rush Hour' into more parts the route; adding the RB45 services that go through Riesa would be a logical way to do so and bring more interest and variation to the drivable services as they enter/leave Riesa.

    I don't know if the services between Riesa and Zeithain need to be drivable as they would just be a single stop journey of under 5 minutes.
    And yes I do know that from 2017 onwards RB45 has been served by BR 1440s in a silver Mitteldeutschen Regiobahn livery. For such a small section though, the anachronistic Pre-2017 BR143+Dostos will have a worthwhile impact to Riesa traffic.

    I wanted to know how you were able to cross that area? I was having trouble.

    Really excellent point but DTG doesn't have a Transdev Veolia license therefore the BR1440 will be in Red Deutsche Bahn Paint and the ability to display RRO S8 S9 S5 Destinations. If DTG wanted Riesa-Dresden Zeithain Branch DB BR1440 give layers to Rhein-Ruhr Osten. Once they have Veolia license then Riesa-Chemnitz (Karl Marx Stadt) line my suggestion if made give Riesa Dresden RB45 Zeithain Branch.
