Train Sim World 4 - On the Tracks of the Maintalbahn

The Rushing River and the Rattling Tracks

Grab a coffee, get comfortable, and let's take a journey through the beautiful northwest of Bavaria together. With the latest add-on for Train Sim World 4, the Maintalbahn: Aschaffenburg - Miltenberg route, we'll be traveling along idyllic landscapes and picturesque villages. This time, we'll be riding the DB BR 642 DMU, a diesel multiple unit that will safely take you through the scenic Maintal valley.

Aschaffenburg, Like New

Even if you're already familiar with Aschaffenburg from the Main-Spessart Bahn, you'll be surprised by the redesign of the station and its surroundings. But don't worry, the region's local pride is still strong, and despite the changes, you'll feel right at home.

Exploring the Maintalbahn

Our train winds its way along the Maintalbahn until it reaches Miltenberg. This is where many of the regular passenger services and local freight trains serving the industry come to an end. The single-track route spans 37 km and features 14 meticulously detailed stations and other landmarks in between. In short, there is plenty to discover!

The DB BR 642 DMU

This add-on introduces the DB BR 642 DMU to Train Sim World. While it may not be the most powerful DMU, it still offers additional diesel train operations on other German routes. So, are you ready for a new challenge?

More Diesel Action with the DB BR 363

But that's not all! The DB BR 363 shunting locomotive, sporting a sleek blue livery, brings even more diesel action to the route, hauling DB Habbiins and Roos-t wagons. And yes, you heard it right, this locomotive also appears on other Train Sim World routes.

Shuttle Services and More

Not every train terminates in Miltenberg. Some services continue to other destinations in the network, such as Wertheim. Others turn around here and head back to Aschaffenburg. And then there are the shorter shuttle services between Aschaffenburg and Aschaffenburg Süd.

Free Roam with the DB BR 642

If you already own other German Train Sim World routes, you'll undoubtedly want to take the DB BR 642 for a spin in Free Roam. Take it to other familiar locations or explore new territories! No matter where your journey takes you, Steam Keys from Keyfuchs will get you there safely.


Attention, train enthusiasts: The Maintalbahn: Aschaffenburg - Miltenberg Route takes the driving experience in Train Sim World 4 to a whole new level of intensity and realism. So, what are you waiting for? It's time to refuel and start the engine!
