Situated on the southern outskirts of Berlin, the railway junction that spurs west from the Leipzig main line to Seddin is densely packed with freight throughout. Featuring miles upon miles of extensive freight yards and winding paths through the Berlin countryside, German heavy hauling does not get more intense than this. Experience the bustling freight yards of Seddin in this complex array of rails for Train simulator, courtesy of Partner Programme member, Aerosoft, as an extension to the popular Berlin-Leipzig route. The freight yard at Seddin opened in 1920, and was quickly established as an international hub for rail freight. It connected with various lines, including the Anhalt Railway and the Berlin-Blankenheim Railway and provided links to many locations. Seddin’s Freight Yard played a significant role in military movements, in both leading up to and during the Second World War. Seddin was a major target for Allied forces during those 6 fatal years, in fact, the yard was bombed directly in April 1945. Following the Second World War, with the division of Germany, new railways were built throughout the outskirts of Berlin to ensure rail connections were maintained to the western side of the cleft-in-twain city. These new railways were the Berlin Outer Freight Ring and, simply, the Berlin Outer Ring; Seddin’s freight yard was adjoined to the former, as its high-profile movements and service capabilities needed to have unrestricted access. The yard itself spans a 5km by 300m area, housing some 100km of track. All this trackage is sandwiched within a dense forest, with the town of Seddin immediately adjacent to the eastern face of the yard. The town’s local DB Regio station is on the western front of the vast track layout, seeing hourly services formed of DB BR 442 ‘Talent 2’s. Perhaps the most iconic landmark in the area was the grand octagonal Water Tower, this impressive 51 metre tall structure symbolised the area, and was in fact marked as a Grade II listed building in 1993. Unfortunately however, it was decided to demolish the tower in 2004 due to a lack of stability. One historic structure that has survived right into modern day is an old coal loading bridge, as part of the locomotive depot, and is protected as a monument. The locomotive depot itself is also present and in frequent use with DB traction coming and going on a daily basis. Even to this day, the freight yard at Seddin is of high importance, serving beyond the German borders into places such as Russia and helping Germany move one day at a time.

A brief guide to help explain how to get the best performance out of steam engines in Train Simulator 2013. Originally written to help drive the J94 locomotives from MeshTools, the techniques are equally relevant to other Steam Engine DLC.
The Aerotrain, a futuristic and utterly unique lightweight diesel streamliner that became one of the most iconic American passenger trains of the 1950s, is now available for Train Simulator! The Aerotrain was created by General Motors as a lightweight, low-cost alternative to traditional passenger equipment, and the diminutive streamliner was at once futuristic in its bold styling and design-based upon standard industrial components. Motive power for the Aerotrain came in the form of a sleek Electro-Motive locomotive designated the LWT12, which was equipped with a standard EMD 567-series 1,200-horsepower diesel power plant. The Aerotrain’s low-slung passenger coaches were based upon GM’s standard 40-passenger intercity bus carbody, which for rail service was widened by 18 inches and mounted on a pair of axles per coach. General Motors assembled a pair of 10-car Aerotrain demonstrators in 1955. The distinctive streamliner made its debut in January 1956 when one of the demonstrators ran from Washington, D.C., to Newark, New Jersey on the Pennsylvania Railroad while the second dashed from Chicago to Detroit on the New York Central. The Pennsylvania Railroad then leased one Aerotrain and utilized it as a nine-car train in New York-Philadelphia-Pittsburgh service, while the second Aerotrain undertook a barnstorming tour that included working on U.S. railroads such as the Santa Fe and Union Pacific. A third Aerotrain locomotive was constructed for the Rock Island and the RI eventually purchased the two demonstrators as well. Created for Train Simulator by DTM, the complete Aerotrain (LWT12 locomotive, coach, and coach-observation) is authentically re-created wearing the Pennsylvania Railroad’s famed “Keystone” logo, making it perfect for service on Train Simulator’s classic Horseshoe Curve route (available separately). And the Aerotrain pack also includes a version of the iconic train in standard demonstrator livery ideal for operation on a wide variety of Train Simulator routes.

TL;DR Buy it if you're rich.
I really like it. Train Simulator is such a great game but the whole DLC's thing isn't good. You have almost nothing when you freshly bought it. Seriously, over 4000$ for all dlc's? and each one costs around 8-20$ for just a train and a new route? No! This game needs either free dlc's with new trains and routes or a cheap pack of let's say "german trains" for 20$ which includes 15-20 new trains and tons of new routes. Then it would be much more worth it. I'd suggest you to crack this game and get all DLC's for free at arrrrbay (you know what I mean) or whatever. Unless you're rich. I can totally understand if licenses are expensive or whatever but it's just not worth it. I remember the days when DLC's used to be Add-ons or mods. Sure, there are sometimes steam sales and really good prices for all the dlc's buy still I wouldn't but any of them.
Well I'm thinking of doing a passenger scenario based on a actual service including the passenger Ai. So far there's not really any freight movement at that time. Is there any point putting some in between the services of just leave them out?
