    Hello, everyone. In this suggestion, I would like to bring the ICE 2 - my favourite ICE - a little closer to you as BR 402. I want to go into some technical details and tell you which routes it can currently be used in Train Sim World 2 and which routes it could be used in the future. I’d say let’s get started.

    ICE-2 half-train in Radbruch

    Description:

    The ICE 2 is the second series of Intercity Express multiple units operated by Deutsche Bahn. As planned, an ICE 2 multiple unit consists of a class 402 power unit, six class 805, 806 and 807 mid-range cars and a class 808 steering car. Two ICE-2 half-pulls can be assembled to form a single block by means of an automatic coupling. ICE 2 power heads are also used in ICE-1 sets. Due to their lengthy loading limits, the trains belong to the group of ICE A in addition to the ICE 1 and the Metropolitan trains.

    The 44 multiple units were initially based at the ICE plant in Munich. On 1 June 2000, the trains were handed over to the Berlin-Rummelsburg railway depot.


    Technical details:
    • Numbering: DB 402 001–046
    • Number: 44 multiple units, 2 spare power heads and 1 spare steering car
    • Manufacturer: “Working Group ICE 2” Siemens/Adtranz and others
    • Years of construction: 1994–1998
    • Length: 205.36 metres (drive head, 6 centre wagons and steering wagons)
    • Mass of service: 455 t (redesign train)
    • Maximum speed: 280 km/h
    • Continuous output: 4.800 kW
    • Approaching force: 200 kN
    • Number of traction engines: 4
    • Safety systems: Sifa, LZB with PZB 90
    • Type of coupling: Scharfenbergkupplung
    • Seats: 381 (after redesign)
    The ICE 2 has different top speeds depending on whether it is pushed or pulled by the powerhead and whether it is coupled to another ICE 2 and how the two are coupled.

    Powerhead to powerhead:

    • 200 km/h on high-speed lines
    • 160 km/h on all other routes.
    Steering car to Powerhead:
    • Powerhead ahead: 280 km/h
    • Steering car ahead: 250 km/h
    Layers:
    First of all, I would like to point out that in this list there are only routes where the ICE 2 currently runs. I will also mention KI ICE 2. Second, I will also include deployments and disconnections. It should also be noted that the lines are not always complete. All marked stations can be accessed in Train Sim World 2 and all italic stations are not present in the game.

    ICE 1: (2 times a day in each direction)
    HamburgEssen – DuisburgDüsseldorfKöln

    On the main line Hamburg – Lübeck (HHL) the ICE 2 could function as an AI train to give Hamburg’s very empty main station a little more life.

    On the main line Rhine-Ruhr (HRR) the ICE 2 could run as AI traffic from Bochum (without stopping in Bochum) to Essen and from there it could be a playable service to Essen. The whole thing would then happen twice a day in each direction.

    The ICE 2 does not operate directly on the high-speed train line Köln Aachen (SKA), but the ICE line 1 starts and ends in Cologne. There could therefore be an hourly deployment drive from the plant and an off-site drive to the plant.

    ICE 10 (every hour):
    Berlin Ostbahnhof – Berlin Hbf – Berlin-Spandau – Stendal – Wolfsburg – Hannover – Bielefeld – Hamm (The train is separated here) -

    • DortmundBochum – Essen – Duisburg Düsseldorf Flughafen – Düsseldorf
    • Hagen – WuppertalKöln
    On the main line Rhine-Ruhr (HRR) the ICE 2 could take over the hourly trains of ICE line 10 from Duisburg via Essen to Bochum and the same in another direction.

    On the Rhine-Ruhr-East (RRO) route, ICE 2 could also take over the hourly trains of ICE Line 10 between Hagen and Wuppertal and the same in the other direction.

    The ICE 2 does not operate directly on the high-speed train line Köln Aachen (SKA), but the ICE line 10 starts and ends in Cologne. There could therefore be an hourly deployment drive from the plant and an off-site drive to the plant.

    ICE 25:

    • (every hour) Hamburg
    • (every 2 hours) (Oldenburg (Oldb) –) Bremen –
    (Grouping of trains every 2 hours) Hannover – Göttingen – Kassel-Wilhelmshöhe – Fulda – Würzburg – Nürnberg – IngolstadtMünchen

    On the main line Hamburg – Lübeck (HHL) the ICE 2 could function as an AI train too to give Hamburg’s very empty main station a little more life.

    On the main line Munich – Augsburg (HMA) the ICE 2 could be on the route as AI traffic. However, the player could also use the ICE line 25 for deployments and disconnections to the operating unit, similar to the SKA.

    ICE 28 (just ICE 907):
    Hamburg-Altona – Hamburg Dammtor – Hamburg – Ludwigslust – Wittenberge – Berlin-Spandau – Berlin – Berlin Südkreuz

    On the main line Hamburg – Lübeck (HHL) the ICE 2 could function as an AI train too to give Hamburg’s very empty main station a little more life.


    In future I would like to see the ICE 2 on routes such as Cologne – Wuppertal, Düsseldorf – Duisburg, Dortmund – Bielefeld, etc. Dortmund – would be very interesting, because we could combine the ICE 2 into a double drive, but also split it into 2 single drives. It’s all happening in Hamm.

    Conclusion:
    Thank you for reading. Now to the conclusion. Before I come to the conclusion, I would like to briefly note that I would be very happy if this train made it into the game, as this is my favorite ICE and I have a lot in common with it and I have therefore made a lot of effort for it to research this. I think the ICE 2 would be a very good train for Train Sim World 2, as it has a lot to offer and may even be detachable on future routes. In addition, this train can be used on many different routes and offer a lot of variety there.
