The add-on depicts the ring of Berlin's S-Bahn and mainline railroads in the state of 2022. A branch line leads in the north to Pankow. The mainline is drivable from Treptower Park to Güterbahnhof Treptow (after a loop around the ring).
Signals, safety equipment and track markings are available for the S-Bahn and mainline tracks. The signals of the S-Bahn are still secured with track stops. The authors have taken great pains to depict the cityscape as recognizably as possible. Garbage, dirt and graffiti graffiti are at best hinted at. We were of the opinion: the role model is dirty enough, there is no need to simulate it this way.
Tempelhof Airport is an exception in the temporal representation. This airport is still used in the simulation. Some signal boxes that have already been demolished (Frankfurter Allee B2, Ostkreuz OKO) have been given a virtual monument, contrary to the prototype. Also, the signal boxes that are no longer in use do not look as rancid as they do in reality, but appear well-kept and preserved.
