The Rhein-Ruhr Osten route is a German route for Train Sim World. It features the 42-kilometre route between Hagen HBF and Wuppertal-Steinbeck, featuring both the mainline and S-Bahn route. The MRCE BR 185.5 and DB BR 422 are both featured with this route.

Hints[edit | edit source]

Hint 1[edit | edit source]


The first hint showed Hagen HBF, featured in the Ruhr Sieg Nord route with a DB BR 143, DB BR 146 in the main picture. Both of these locos were already featured in Train Sim World. To the far left of the image, a new loco could be barely seen. It was unknown what type of loco this is but the best guess was DB BR 422 from the way it looks in the picture. Another clue to this was if you take the number after the 143/146 on both trains they added to 422(246+176).

Route[edit | edit source]

The route runs from Hagen HBF to Wuppertal-Steinbeck, including both the mainline used by freight services and the S-Bahn route via Gevelsberg. Together these lines have a total route length of 42 kilometres. The route is mostly double track though there are some single track sections.

Training[edit | edit source]

Scenarios[edit | edit source]

  • Setting Out - Bring a locomotive into service and prepare for the day's operations
  • Freight Diversion - Intermodal cargo makes up a large portion of traffic through the Wupper Valley. Take part in these operations by hauling a train east from Wuppertal-Langerfield
  • Commuter Conclusion - Complete the last S-Bahn service for the day and return the train to the depot
  • Technical Difficulties - Operate an Antwerp-bound train from Hagan Yard as far as Wuppertal. Due to its weight, the train will be double-headed
  • Ruhr Run - Take charge of an early morning S-Bahn service bound for Hagen
