    See title...
    They just relaunched their website: www.railadventure.de with a lot of - in detail - operational information and took over Dutch company RailExperts today (08-05-2021).
    RailAdventure is a very interesting and awesome company if I may say so, with a lot of love for trains. The owner Alex Dworaczek (former director of...MRCE, hey, that is a company we all know :o;)) is part of a family tree full of traindrivers (an interesting read in this interview with his father, a former Deutsche Bundesbahn BR103 driver: https://www.merkur.de/bayern/weltrekord-lokfuehrer-951488.html) and an obvious railfan himself:

    His company does a lot of special transports and organize teststages for new railequipment all over Europe. If you really want to have something special in your game/simulator which would attract a lot of railfans, Dovetail should definitely need to contact them (DTG JD )! :cool:
    They are an open, young, independent (non-competitive) and relatively new company, cooperative in a lot of instances and they even mention their RAL-colours and logo's to download on their website:

    ;):love:
    I am more than certain that this company would love to be in TSW2!
    RailAdventure has its origin from organizing the official Guinness World Record for electric locomotives (which has gotten mentioned various times in the streams) regarding the Taurus engines...Alex drove this engine actually!

    You want to have some of the European all-time classics, they have them in their fleet, German BR103/111/183/139; DE18, British HST Class 43, Dutch Nez Cassé 1600, Swiss Ae 6/6.:

    Edited a lot of stuff...maybe a bit to enthusiastic, but for sure this would be an awesome add-on! Maybe coupled to an interesting route like Hannover - Braunschweig for example.

    A railadventure license would be great for my Dutch route suggestion, which could see RailExperts' ex-NS 1600 locos (which Railadventure now has the license for I presume).

    Yes...9903 had the paintjob already. That is the one in the picture previously. So I presume the other ones will follow suit.
    I think a lot of people would be happy with a Nez Cassé locomotive, it has been exported to a lot of countries as well (even French SNCF CC21003 ended up as Amtrak X996 on the NEC at some point). So a lot of painting opportunities in the livery designer... ;)

    I would love to see Railadventure in TSW! Especially on MSB on scenario 'Doppelstock Delivery' with the Habiins wagons a bit modified and RADVE logo on it. And since we already have a GE 4/4 II and a V60, they could easily get a re-paint when having the license.

    Also very nice too see someone is linking my video :)

    Raildventure could be an interesting addition to TSW - I even suggested the Railadventure Br 103 myself at some point. The only problem I see is their implementation into timetable services. Seeing how they mainly handle special transports with lots of specialised rolling stock, that might be a difficult task. Having lots of those services in a timetable might not be beneficial for immersion.

    Who'd have ever thought Class 43s could one day be seen on German rails? Interesting times we live in :)
