This add-on, which was commissioned by the Berlin association Historische S-Bahn e.V., shows everyday life on the Berlin S-Bahn as it once was. The year 2006, the year of the Football World Cup in Germany, was chosen as the date. This does not fit in with the fact that at that time all the old trains had already disappeared from the S-Bahn network and that, with a few exceptions, all the supervisors had vanished from the stations. But it could have turned out differently... The trains are dispatched by radio or light signals, and announcements are made on the platforms. 11 scenarios with 12 hours of travel time reflect a day on the Berlin S-Bahn. A day - spread over 4 seasons and different weather conditions - with many conceivable and actual facets of the operation of the Berlin S-Bahn.
The included S-Bahn, a "Nietenreko" of the class 476.3 brings the old Berlin S-Bahn song back to the city. Driving and especially braking needs to be practised. The train has a single-solenoid brake. The brake can be applied in several stages, but only released in one. It's a real challenge to circle a full train of 135m length to the platform of 145m length.
In addition, this package contains the Christmas train scenario.
