Schnellfahrstrecke Köln - Aachen PIS Extension and Fixes

14× · 2,303×

This mod contains a complete rework of the Station Directory from Schnellfahrstrecke Köln - Aachen. This fixes many of the wrong station names (Cologne Hbf, Duren or some even completely missing) on the PIS of for example the IC coaches or Muff's working platform departure boards for the route (see pictures for comparisons and more details). With version 1.1 intermediate stops are now also shown on the boards.

There is also a version (made by Aran) that fakes off-map destinations and via stations by changing the names of the last station of each service to a more appropriate name, this is not perfect and some compromises had to be made with some services due to how these are set up. Therefore, this is an optional addition and you can download either version.

Now with the new destinations system for the BR 146 (MSB) and Dostos (MSB), this method also allows for additional destinations on the train. This not only makes adding destinations like Hamm (Westf) or Düsseldorf Hbf possible, I was also able to add line numbers to the destinations. Sadly those additional destinations don't show on AI trains or platform departure boards, they can only be set by the player.

Added Destinations

  • Düsseldorf Hbf
  • Dortmund Hbf
  • Hamm (Westf)
  • Paderborn Hbf
  • Siegen Hbf
  • Frankfurt (Main) Hbf
  • Bruxelles Midi
  • RE1 Aachen Hbf
  • RE1 Köln Hbf
  • RE1 Düsseldorf Hbf
  • RE1 Dortmund Hbf
  • RE1 Hamm (Westf)
  • RE1 Paderborn Hbf
  • RE9 Siegen Hbf
  • RE9 Aachen Hbf

Do you want some more destinations for the route or are some still not quite like in reality? Send me a message and I can edit / add the things you need.

Is it possible to the PIS for other routes and to get something like Hamm (Westf.) on the screen and can you do this for Hauptsrecke Rhein-Ruhr (RE1, RE2 and RE6 lines), Rhein-Ruhr Osten (RE4, RE7) and Main-Spessart Bahn (RB58, RB59, RB79, RE?)

Every route needs it‘s own mod. I am already working on mods for HRR and HBK but I can’t tell you when they are ready to publish. I also have RRO on my list. Sooner or later I‘ll do MSB too I guess.

Hello, and thanks for your mods thats add a lot to immersion !
À question however as im New to this im not sûre of what is, possible.
Is it possible to add destinations to the 422 also ? They still wear only "nicht einsteigen".
