    What's the point of this poll? DTG already said it's gonna be the ICE 3 and Talent 2

    What’s the question? There is a statement followed by four choices, only one of which is included in the route.

    I dont get the point of this. It's just a statement with a poll.

    Hi, here is my opinion:
    ICE 1: No
    ICE 2: No
    ICE 3: No
    Bombardier Talent 2: Is ingame

    None of the Trains you mentionend run on the line, so why should they be added?
    Wouldn't it be better to add Trains that actually run there, like 146.0 and Dostos, BR 423, BR 643, BR 186, and Maybe the Thalys

    Ah, okay I get it now, it was the Talent 2 that confused me as that is actually included with the route. Still a bit soon to be asking for more trains though with the route not even out yet ;) but the more the merrier I say.

    The only trains that use the line are :
    • ICE 3M
    • Talent 2
    • BR 425
    • BR 423
    No ICE 1, ICE 2 or ICE 3 (not the 3M).

    Haven’t you already said that 2 posts up? What’s the point repeating it, we know what trains you think are the only ones on the route. You are not taking into account trains that might have used the route in the past and could be realistically included as added content in time.

    Well you seem very sure but maybe someone can come to this thread from Germany and correct you. Even a quick glance at the Wikipedia page will teach you that there are other trains on the route.

    Greetings from germany! ;)

    Rolling stock used on the route in 2019 is among the ICE3M and Talent2 and many others:
    - BR 146 + Dosto
    - Thalys PBKA
    - BR 185
    - BR 186
    - BR 152
    - BR 643
    - Class 66
    - BR 203
    ...

    As I saw the recent screens of Köln Hbf I felt a bit sad - it's so well built but being that empty kills every immersion for me.
    I really hope they reconsider their decision and make at least some of the TSW1 models usable in the new routes but I highly doubt it. It's a shame that so much of TSWs potential is wasted so often by restricting its gameplay with decisions like that.

    If you want a closer look on pictures of the route in RL I suggest this site:

    They are quite a common sight and probably the only british locomotive used over here :) although not by the DB but instead by countless private freight companies. That makes them a sight even on fully electrified lines 8)
    Of course licensing for digital models isn't that easy therefore.

    How’s that knowledge working out for you now, after the above post.

    (thanks for the list JonnE ) Hope to see some of them in the route in the future.

    Being burned by JonnE that bad, satisfied me on a level I can't describe :D

    And as a german who grew up in this area, I felt insulted by you, being so sure about something that isn't just as half as correct as you thought...

    Don't forget t mention the BR 423 ;) (which I would highly recommend for DTG to add in the future for this route!)

    It is often better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're stupid than open it and prove them right.

    I am not against adding trains at all, but before having all ICE types I'd rather have some updated BR42X that also runs on parts of the route. There's a lot of especially german loco stuff that could be reused again. Or I think the BR146 also runs here could also be used. So there's a big opportunity updating stuff to increase variety.
