DB Releases New Free Train Simulator App

DB Releases New Free Train Simulator App
Danny Gill

Deutsche Bahn (DB) is launching its first in-house train simulator app that turns driving a train into a fun learning experience.

train appThe app is based on real train data and the program that DB has used for ten years to teach energy-efficient train driving techniques. Careful driving can save up to 4,000 kilowatt hours of electricity during just one ICE round trip between Hamburg and Munich. This is as much power as a family of four uses in a single year! The objective is getting to the destination on time and efficiently.

Players can select one of four train types (ICE, IC, RB, RE) and three different routes to try out their energy-efficient driving skills. Some tips: Pick up speed fast when starting out, use momentum to take inclines or enter stations, and feed energy back into the power grid when braking.

The DB game features three different difficulty levels. Once users successfully steer their train to its destination, they get to see how much energy they saved in addition to the highest scores, and they can then progress to the next level. Until August 31, players who negotiate all three routes and beat the high-score levels are in with a chance to win great prizes. The best drivers will be entered in a draw for an excursion through the rich natural environment of the scenic Saxon Switzerland region near Dresden.

Check out the download links for both Android and iOS to try it out now.
