The modern and low-emission BR 266 comes to Train Simulator, ideal for running freight services on Germany’s extensive rail network.
Built in Canada by General Motors, the BR 266 is based on the UK’s Class 66 diesel locomotive, externally resembling the UK locomotive in appearance but with a different internal control desk to accommodate for the addition of German rail systems.
The locomotive is operated by a number of German hauliers, including Euro Cargo Rail, HGK, Rail4Chem and HHPI, and regularly hauls heavy freight across Germany and Western Europe.
The BR 266 for Train Simulator is available in grey/silver livery and features SIFA driver vigilance, PZB and LZB signalling systems, along with Megafret container wagons.
Three scenarios for the West Rhine: Cologne-Koblenz route:
The loco disappointingly only comes in one livery - it would be more worth while a purchase if it had at least two, including the more typical red one. As far as sound effects go, it sounds good, though a majority of the sounds appear to be recycled from the Class 66. This is of course because it is based upon the 66. It comes with a good selection of wagons which is always welcome. Prior owners of the class 66 might want to reconsider a purchase of this DLC as they are essentially identical. However this will make a reasonable addition to your German collection.
