    Dear DTG, can you please add the DB IC 2 trains to TSW2, that would give us more traffic around the Rhein Ruhr Area and these trains are very good. They have a maximum speed of 160 km/h 100 Mp/H. They drive for example from Cologne to Leibzig or from Cologne to Dresden and much more, it shouldn't be as much work to add it because you only need to change the livery of the Br146.2 and change the livery of the Dostos and maybe change the Steuerwagen

    I completely agree, this feels like such a quick win to me. They run occasional services between Munich and Augsburg as well, and possibly Duisburg - Bochum.

    Completely agree with this proposal and for one of the downloadable locomotives DB BR187 it just needs some rework into DB BR147. The top Locomotive is simply a Main Spessart Bahn Aschaffenburg-Gemünden DB BR 146.2 Repaint. The fun thing with them is that you can use them on Main Spessart Bahn Aschaffenburg-Gemünden to portray as an Intercity train running between the two stations. Furthermore more you can code break them to say Leipzig Hbf or Halle on the double decker cab control car. Did this on MSB DB BR 146.2 & Dosto destination board signs.

    Wrong. The IC 2 are Dostos from the 5th Generation. We have already in TSW Dosto07.

    Have they also done Frankfurt Aschaffenburg-Gemünden-Würzberg-Nüremberg-Augsberg Services that's the Main Spessart Bahn route which they can also use as a deadhead route towards Köln from Augsburg.

    Current routes are:

    Karlsruhe - Stuttgart - Ansbach - Nurnberg (with around 1 a day which is extended on to Munich via Augsburg)
    Cologne - Wuppertal - Dortmund - Hannover - Magdeburg - Leipzig - Dresden
    Norddeich Mole - Bremen - Hannover - Magdeburg - Leipzig
    Norddeich Mole - Emden - Muenster - Gelsenkirchen - Duisburg - Duesseldorf - Cologne (not all services)
    Stuttgart - Horb - Rottweil - Singen

    I don't think there are any ICs at Gemunden anymore - long distance trains between Wurzburg and Augsburg tend to be ICEs, except the Oberstdorf/Berchtesgaden service, which is IC1. I think IC2 would make a decent substitute though, until IC1 is available

    The IC 1 will be available sooner though, as it's already announced :).

    In the meantime - if you can't wait for the IC2 and own a PC - I recommend you this reskin.
