    Hi this is driverwoods#1787 posting on Off Topic TSW 2 Forums. Recently Smithsonian Channel Mighty trains has a replay episode on the Spanish high-speed Network the AVE S103. Original air date on the episode what's November 4th 2018.
    Here is the picture I took of the AVE S103 cab from the TV show. Does anyone know what are the buttons exactly for? One thing I know is is that the driver has to use the Sifa system. Even the same episode talked about the dangers of operating S103 because ice will cause you to derail at a speed of 300-320 km/h (185-200 mph). The same information will apply to it's sister Trains HMA DLC DB BR403 and base game SKA DB BR406.
    Doing the episode it will talk about how European rail traffic management system ERTMS works. That feature will be useful on future German Schnellfahrstrecke like Leipzig Erfurt and my suggestion the Duisburg-Oberhausen-Arnhem Railway where the Emmerich Zenvaar section has it equipped.
