Scenic regional operations are set to come to life as we are bringing the picturesque Kiel - Lübeck railway to Train Simulator!
The earliest sections of the line were opened in 1866, in an effort to link communities of Schleswig-Holstein with the Baltic ports, however rails wouldn’t reach Lübeck until 1873, as it was Free Imperial City during this period and not part of the State.
Once fully opened, the railway was operated by multiple companies, primarily transporting passengers who were visiting the stunning locations of the region. By the 1930s, journey times across the route averaged in at 150 minutes, with the D-Zug express getting that down to 95. Today, regional services can traverse the line in a little over an hour.
Unlike many popular routes throughout Germany, the Kiel-Lübeck railway remains unelectrified to this day, and is mostly single-track, meaning it is a haven of diesel operations and features passing loops at various stations across the route.
Coming soon to Train Simulator, the 80 km Kiel-Lübeck railway will allow you to experience Schleswig-Holstein at its scenic best, aboard hard-working traction such as the DB BR 648 DMU and DB BR 218 diesel locomotive, taking passengers across stunning vistas and through the heart of forested plains.
