Schnellfahrstrecke Köln - Aachen PIS Extension and Fixes

This mod contains a complete rework of the Station Directory from Schnellfahrstrecke Köln - Aachen. This fixes many instances where the station name was either wrong or missing entirely on either the Station PIS or on displays on trains such as the IC Coaches. This also includes correcting any mistakes that were made with the update to the SKA Service mode on the 16th March, such as all RE9 trains displaying as going to Gießen rather than the actual destination Siegen Hbf.

Now with the new destinations system for the BR 146 (MSB), Dostos (MSB) and BR 423 (S-Bahn Köln), 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.

The mod TP-423CTP-Line-Numbers-Detection adds detection for the S-Bahn Köln line numbers to the S-Bahn Köln BR 423 from The New Journey Expansion Pack so the line number can be shown separately from the destination when a detination with a line number was set by the player, this sadly doesn't change anything for AI trains.

Edited Destinations:

  • Gießen -> Siegen Hbf
  • Düsseldorf Flughafen -> D Flugh Term
  • Limburg -> [Blank - ICE doesn't stop there in real life]
  • Montabaur -> [Blank - ICE doesn't stop there in real life]
  • Essen (Whestphalia) Hbf -> Essen Hbf
  • Mülheim (Westphalia) Hbf -> Mülheim(Ruhr) Hbf
  • Bochum-Watternscheid -> Wattenscheid
  • Abbreviated short display names for stations including Köln(K), Düsseldorf(D), Essen(E) and Dortmund(DO)
  • Removed/Added 'Hbf' where necessary
  • Implemented the Airplane Symbol from the German Platform Departure Boards Enhancements Mod to stations where this is appropriate - please note that this Mod is required for the Airplane Symbol to appear.

Added Destinations:

  • S6: Köln-Worringen, Köln-Nippes, Düsseldorf Hbf, Essen Hbf
  • S11: D Flugh Terminal, Köln-Worringen, Köln Hbf, Düsseldorf Hbf, Bergisch Gladbach / Berg. Gladbach
  • S12: Horrem, Köln-Müngersdorf Tech., Köln-Ehrenfeld, Troisdorf, Hennef (Sieg), Blankenberg (Sieg), Au (Sieg)
  • S19: Aachen, Düren, Sindorf, Troisdorf, Hennef (Sieg), Blankenberg (Sieg), Au (Sieg)
  • RE1: Aachen Hbf, Köln Hbf, Düsseldorf Hbf, Dortmund Hbf, Hamm (Westf) Hbf, Paderborn Hbf
  • RE9: Aachen Hbf, Köln Hbf, Siegen Hbf
  • Various special destinations
  • A large selection of destinations used by Intercity and Eurocity trains

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".

No that's sadly not possible with how I made this mod.

As far as I know, the PIS is now avalaiable for SKA (could be a mistake by DTG). Is it possible that this mod isn't fully compatible with the new Station PIS? Especially that in Köln the PIS on track 6 and 7 is the one for track 4 and 5 (on every other its correct) isn't that nice

Afaik that's an issue by DTG and not by me. I will double check this again later. Some other stations have the same issues on SKA.

Yes I checked that and it's happening without the mod too.

No I don't think so. At least I wasn't able to find a simple fix for it.

Is the line detectionmod for the vehicles or just for station PIS because it doesn't works on my PC and I only have the mod with offmap hacks installed (from the mods on this page)

This is only for when you select a destination with a line number on the player train in a 423. With the mod the line number is handled separately from the destination.

ok. so if I would use RE9 Aachen on a S19 to Düren it would say S19 Aachen. Its a great idea but I don't like that there aren't any lines on the important destination. Also is it possible to fix Horrem Hbf as Horrem isn't a Hauptbahnhof

Avatar of TaskPlays

No that's only when you select a destination like "S19 Düren" or "S12 Horrem". The offmap hacks version doesn't have the S-Bahn destinations though. Horrem Hbf is definitely fixed with the normal version but should also be fixed with the offmap.

its not with offmap. Is it possible to add the s-bahn destinations with numbers to the offmapversion and to add Hennef (Sieg) as a destination.

That would definitely be possible but the off map version works so bad with the Expansion Pack that we don't support that. If we were to make it properly we would have to almost remove every off map hack.

This mod is amazing and so useful! Will a mod like this ever be made for other german routes like RRO or MSB? Thanks :D

Thanks for the kind words, glad that you like it! Mods for RRO and MSB are on the list but nothing in the works yet, we know the demand is there though so we'll see what we can do.

Did you try it with the new version yet, and all the dependencies added? What exactly didn't work about the mod, did it just not load? It worked on my Epic version so I'm curious to learn more about how and if these mods might fail on Epic.

I tried using this mod, but the Route Number (such as S12) didnt show up on any of the destination boards on the BR423 (New Journey Expansion) and i've downloaed everything, aswell as the dependices, and set the destinations manually from inside the train. I don't own any routes that include the 423, nor any other German routes, only the default route, and the New Journey Expansion, maybe thats why? Confused if thats not the case.

When you have both the paks from this page in your DLC folder, the line numbers should show (after setting a specific destination with a line number manually).

I do have them both installed, maybe I'm choosing the wrong destination? Not completely sure.

Avatar of TaskPlays

Sounds likely. You need to select a destination which has the line number included.
