These are my subjective opinions and thoughts on the newly released BR 101 DLC and future DLCs regarding German Intercity services. You can put your thoughts and comments below, but please remain calm and constructive. Opinions on the BR 101 DLC: The locomotive and coaches are among the best we've ever got for TSW. Whilst there are some minor faults (which is normal for a release build) the driving experience is very enjoyable. The performance feels right, the models are accurate and the sounds are brilliant. I didn't expect the coaches to have the correct sound, but they are clearly identifiable as IC coaches even if they could get some more fine-tuning. But there are also things that I don't like. Firstly delivering the BR 101 with HRR wasn't the best choice. The loco can't show its strengths on this route because it is too slow and too short. To remain accurate to the real routes the BR 101 runs on the only other option would have been HMA, which already has problems due to the high count of services on the route. In my opinion, the BR 101 should have been released with a new german route on which it could run with 200km/h. The main argument from DTG why they did not include the cab car was that it would be like building a second loco. I think this argument is not really valid if we consider older DLCs. The Baby Bullet for PenCo came with a loco, coaches and a cab car. MSB came with the BR 146.2, BR 185.2 (only minor changes between these) and the Dosto Cab car. No other route was delivered with three locos. And whilst there is still a lot of work involved with building a cab car it is less than building a loco. The normal running sounds are the same as with normal coaches, the normal end of the cab car can basically be copied from a normal coach and the simugraph model doesn't need anything related to propulsion. As a trade-in for not having the cab car in this DLC, it would at least have been nice to get the bistro car. Thoughts on more IC rolling stock: I think many people in the community would like to see even more German IC rolling stock in the game. The rolling stock used in IC services is really diverse. Most coaches were built in the 70s and 80s and were modernised multiple times in their lifetime. So even if two coaches have entered service as the same type they can look really different today. Since DTG want to avoid a DLC that needs a loco DLC this needs to come with a new loco. The BR 120 would be perfect. This could just copy the IC coaches from the BR 101 and add the cab car. The ex-IR (InterRegio) coaches would also make a nice addition to the game. There are also the IC2 coaches, which are Dosto coaches of the fifth generation (Bombardier Twindexx Vario). These could then be also implemented with some modifications in the interior for regional services.
