    I wanted to suggest a route to be added to TrainSimWorld that I think not many people are aware of. However it is a stunningly beautiful and complex route.
    The route I am talking about is in Germany and it originates in the city of Munich and leads to the three cities of Bayerischzell, Lengrieß and Tegernsee. It is not operated by the DB but rather by the private railway company BRB / BOB (Bayerische Regio Bahn / Bayerische Oberland Bahn).
    One of the great features about this route is that it has three separate railway branches. The Train departs in Munich and carries on as a four or three car train.
    The train is first separated in Holzkirchen. One part of the train continues on to Bayerischzell the other two continue on to Schaftlach where they are separated again.
    You can see the proposed route in the following diagram:

    The route is 120 km long and also travels thru some of Munichs busiest railway stations and crosses two S-Bahn (Suburban Train) Routes. These could probably be integrated into the route as well to increase the diversity on the route. The route is electrified until the stop at Holzkirchen, from there on it has got no overhead wires and is operated by Diesel Multiple Units. The route starts in urban Munich and ends in the Bavarian Mountains as can be seen in the map below.

    Rolling Stock:
    Integral (1998 - 2020):
    The Integral was specially build for the BOB and has carried out the service until 2020. It has only been used on this route. It's a Diesel Multipe Unit with a top speed of 140 kph. It is roughly 53 Meters long and can be operated as 1, 2, 3 or 4 units attached to each other.

    Alstom Corodia Lint54:
    In order to reduce carbon emissions and to renew the old fleet, new Trains of this type were ordered and began service in 2020.
