RB 40 Essen Hbf – Bochum Hbf (with Path Extension: Portals, more lines etc.)
This is one of my higher quality scenarios that use the path extension mod and some advanced formations of me. I also found a way (link to the tutorial) to be able to specify departure times outside of the 5 minute steps. So now a much more realistic and diverse AI traffic is present in my scenarios.
In this scenario, a Talent 2 in VRR livery goes from Essen Hbf to Bochum Hbf.
What makes this scenario special?
In the timetable mode of the Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr, there is no train that stops in Essen-Kray Süd, even with the vanilla scenario designer, this is not possible in this way. The terminus platform 9 in Essen Hbf is otherwise not used in the game, furthermore the otherwise unused line between Essen Hbf platform 9 and Essen-Kray Süd is also only used by the RB 40 (and the RE 16). The last thing to add is the deviating platform in Bochum, platform 6 is otherwise only used by some ICs, but otherwise the entry to Bochum is also a new experience. So with this scenario you can experience the exit from Essen in a completely different way than you usually do.
In reality, 5-car FLIRT 3 XLs from Abellio are used in the VRR livery on RB 40, but I think the Talent 2 with the livery from Foobian comes pretty close.
I also added a destination mod to the scenario, which adds destinations for the RB 40.
More details, a timetable and installation instructions can be found in the Readme. You should definitely drive according to the timetable from the Readme, so that all planned train encounters can take place.
