Learn The Controls
The DB BR 403 ICE 3 has some controls that you may be familiar with, assuming you have previously played Schnellfahrstrecke Köln - Aachen, however its cab has undergone some modernisation, gone are the analogue dials in favour of a digital screen. In contrast the DB BR 423 is completely new. There are comprehensive tutorials for both units should you wish to brush up on your skills or learn the new controls. With brakes that act differently to many of the DB units, that you may be used to driving, and a tight timetable to stick to, we highly recommend you get some practice in with the DB BR 423 before being unleashed on the expectant commuter.
Clean Your Loco
Ensuring the railway projects a professional image is incredibly important, so maintaining the condition and cleanliness of the Deutsche Bahn flagship unit the DB BR 403 ICE 3 is equally important.
