Fun, fun, fun on the Main-Spessart Bahn

Train Sim World®: Main-Spessart Bahn: Aschaffenburg – Gemünden out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC!

Chatham, Kent – 12th March 2019 Today is the cross-platform launch for Train Sim World: Main-Spessart Bahn - the latest route add-on for Dovetail Games’ industry-leading first-person rail simulator, Train Sim World.

Travel along the Spessart mountain range, a scenic route filled with challenging slopes and beautiful views in equal measure. Carry passengers to and from work or haul tons of freight – but be wary of the steep grades… For the first time ever Banking operations are a part of this route, with dedicated locomotives joining heavy trains to help push them up the most challenging slopes.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4® technology and Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine, incorporating a simulation underpinned with expert technical knowledge and real-world data, the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make the trains feel just like the real thing.

Train Sim World: Main-Spessart Bahn is out now – and here’s what you’ll find inside:

• A wondrous mix of steep gradients, scenic hillsides and swooping turns come to life in Train Sim World: Main-Spessart Bahn, a timeless freight-heavy and passenger-laden corridor through the heart of the German countryside. Reproduced in exquisite detail, every station, signal and milepost feel so real you could almost reach out and touch them.

• It’s your job to carry freight and passengers over Main-Spessart Bahn. Manage your powerful locomotives over the steep grade and deliver your cargo on-time. Whether you’re driving, riding along or watching the action, experience all the sights and sounds of German railways at their best.

• Take control of two modern icons of German motive power, the DB BR 185.2 locomotive and the DB BR 146.2 locomotive and experience push-pull operation in the DoppelStockwagen control car. Featuring authentic electric simulations underpinned with expert technical knowledge and real-world data, the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make them feel just like the real thing.
