The TRAXX series of electric locomotives from Bombardier is responsible for many of Germany’s more modern freight and passenger locomotives, including the BR 145, now available for Train Simulator.Read full description
The BR 145, like many DTG trains, is nicely and accurately modelled. As ever it is let down by the flat sound effects. Neither the train nor its coaches feature any form of rumbling or authentic clanking/rubbing sounds which would have otherwise provided a level of immersion which only some locos exhibit. Horn, motor, and int/exterior sounds are recycled from the BR 101. Further to add to the disappointment, the DLC includes just two scenarios (where the others are 'training'). To me, the train looks and feels little different to the BR 101 which you no doubt already own in your collection. Therefore, I can only recommend purchasing this DLC if you are very particular about this specific loco (maybe because you are familiar with riding on it in real life), as [for me] it simply doesn't add the variety which I would want the route. This might be just what you are wanting, but I prefer a bit of variety.
