    The Rostock S-Bahn (German: S-Bahn Rostock) is a S-Bahn (suburban railway) network in Rostock in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It consists of three lines with a total length of about 90 km. Line S1 runs from Rostock Hauptbahnhof (main station) to Warnemünde within the Rostock urban area. S-Bahn operations started in 1970s. Later, the lines to the north-east to the port (Seehafen) of Rostock and to the south to the town of Güstrow via Schwaan were included in the S-Bahn network. The line to the port was discontinued in 2012, but at same time the line to Güstrow via Laage was included as line S3 of the S-Bahn. Until 2014 they were mainly operated as push–pull trains with double-deck coaches. Since then all lines have been operated with new Bombardier Talent 2 railcars.

    Line S1: Stops = 10, Length = 13.3km, Travel time = 20 min.
    Warnemünde - Warnemünde Werft - R.-Lichtenhagen - R.-Lütten Klein - R.-Evershagen - R.-Marienehe - R.-Bramow - R.-Holbeinplatz - R.-Parkstraße - Rostock Hauptbahnhof

    Line S2: Stops = 17, Length = 47.6km, Travel time = 58 min.
    Warnemünde - Warnemünde Werft - R.-Lichtenhagen - R.-Lütten Klein - R.-Evershagen - R.-Marienehe - R.-Bramow - R.-Holbeinplatz - R.-Parkstraße - Rostock Hauptbahnhof - Papendorf - Pölchow - Huckstorf - Schwaan - Mistorf - Lüssow - Güstrow

    Line S3: Stops = 18, Length = 58.1km, Travel time = 74 min.
    Warnemünde - Warnemünde Werft - R.-Lichtenhagen - R.-Lütten Klein - R.-Evershagen - R.-Marienehe – R.-Bramow - R. Holbeinplatz - R. Parkstraße - Rostock Hauptbahnhof - Kavelstorf - Scharstorf - Kronskamp - [​IMG] Laage - Subzin-Liessow - Plaaz - Priemerburg - Güstrow

    Rolling stock
    For a long time services between Rostock and Warnemünde were operated with double-deck push-pull trains. For a period trains were operated with two coupled sets of four double-deck carriages (sharing bogies), but from the mid-1970s trains used in commuter traffic were partly composed of three coupled sets with a total of twelve cars. In the 1980s, the trains were replaced by double-deck carriages with their own bogies, which were modernised in the 1990s and were still in use in 2013.

    All lines were operated with push-pull trains with a Class 143 locomotive and two modernised double-deck cars of Deutsche Reichsbahn and a newer double-deck cab car. On special occasions the trains could be extended to a maximum length of five cars (driving trailer, four intermediate cars). All trains possessed first and second class cars. Except for the new double-deck cars on line S3, the cars were marked with the letters "S-Bahn Rostock DB".

    Since 9 October 2013, starting with line S3, 23 Bombardier Talent 2 electric multiple units have gradually replaced the old double-deck railcars. On 26 April 2014, the conversion was complete. Since then only the Talent 2 railcars run across the network. Class 143 locomotives hauling the only two remaining double deck cars substitute when required.

    Technically - cool route! But: Dostos and the Talent 2 once again? In my opinion, we need something new for Germany soon...

    Well the Dosto and the Talent 2 are the backbone of many German railway networks, the only way to not have it that way would be to set it in the days of DR in the German Democratic Republic, but this would create a whole extra obstacle for DTG to overcome, getting the license to a company that doesn't exist anymore

    There are many more trains on the German rails today. Just have a quick look on Google and youll see plenty of trains that are not in the game yet

    Google shows plenty of pictures of Talents and Dostos, along with ICEs and ICs, and that doesn't mean its only recycled content, they could add the 111 or the 120 for example, dostos need something with power for them to work, there are still some locomotives not yet in the game

    111 Original purpose was S-Bahn Rhein Ruhr & InterCity services while DB BR120 was designed to be an universal locomotive for freight and passenger. That feature of the DB BR120 can be useful for Rostock S-Bahn and Rostock Berlin routes.
