    [EDIT: 1. updated to include the new route for TSW3. Information from this is only from Wikipedia, as I don't have TSW 3 yet - please correct any mistakes. 2. Added SKA, which I'd simply forgotten in the original document. 3. Fixed RRO, where the in-game distances don't always correspond to real-life distances.]

    Hi everyone, this is not an EBuLa, but if you want to turn off the HUD completely on German routes (except while waiting for passenger to finish boarding, I guess), I created a printable PDF listing the station distances (Streckenkilometer) for all currently available German routes here.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about: look for these signs beside the track. They are spaced every 200 metres and tell you how far you are from the start of the track.

    So depending which direction you're going, you'll count up or down. If you want to stop, for example, at Wiesthal on Main-Spessart Bahn and you're going east (Aschaffenburg -> Gemünden), you'll see on the list that Wiesthal station is at 65,5 km. The track count goes from east to west, so you're counting down and when you pass the 66,4 marker, you know that you're 900 metres out from the station.

    Don't worry if the count suddenly changes along the route. Example: driving an IC, ICE or some freight trains on Dresden-Riesa along the northern branch, the count changes four times because you're crossing four junctions.

    Happy driving!

    Thank you for sharing.

    Just finished watching a vid on EBuLa, and now I see what's meant to be on that screen in TSW2 :) (DTG make it happen):
