One of Germany’s oldest railway lines comes to life in the
beautiful and picturesque Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route for
Set in the southern part of the German state of Bavaria, the
100km (62 mile) route is mainly single track throughout and runs
from the country’s expansive capital city to the mountainous
resorts of Bavaria, on the border with Austria. The first section
of the line from Munich to Pasing, and on to Planegg, was opened on
21 May 1854, and throughout the same year further work continued to
extend the railway to Gauting, Mühlthal and Starnberg.
Over subsequent years, more sections of the route were
independently built to service local industries in and around the
towns of Weilheim, Tutzing, Murnau and Partenkirchen; these
sections were upgraded and merged in the early 1900s, and on 20
February 1925, an electric hauled train completed the first full
run from Munich Main Station to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Munich S-Bahn Line S6 services serve the route, running south
from Munich to Tutzing, where they terminate. Additionally,
Intercity-Express (ICE) trains can be seen on the line, running
from Munich to Innsbruck.
The Regionalbahn BR 426 is a popular train-set on the S6 Line, a
train-set that is included with this route. Built by a consortium
of Siemens, Bombardier and DWA, the BR 426 is almost identical to
the BR 425, bar the BR 426 being a two-car unit rather than a
four-car unit. The high powered, lightweight vehicles were designed
for short to medium distance services, making them ideal units for
the S6 Line. Features of the model include SIFA, PZB and LZB in-cab
signalling and driver safety devices, in-cab indicators, cab
controls and cab lighting.
The Munich – Garmisch-Partenkirchen route is highly detailed and
feature-rich, and incorporates night lighting, therefore will
benefit from a higher PC specification than other Train Simulator
