The modern and low-emission BR 266 comes to Train Simulator, ideal for running freight services on Germany’s extensive rail network.

Built in Canada by General Motors, the BR 266 is based on the UK’s Class 66 diesel locomotive, externally resembling the UK locomotive in appearance but with a different internal control desk to accommodate for the addition of German rail systems.

The locomotive is operated by a number of German hauliers, including Euro Cargo Rail, HGK, Rail4Chem and HHPI, and regularly hauls heavy freight across Germany and Western Europe.

The BR 266 for Train Simulator is available in grey/silver livery and features SIFA driver vigilance, PZB and LZB signalling systems, along with Megafret container wagons.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the BR 266 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the West Rhine: Cologne-Koblenz route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).


Three scenarios for the West Rhine: Cologne-Koblenz route:

  • Cargo Carrier to Koblenz
  • Evening Freight Duties
  • Rush Hour Rescue

More scenarios are available on Steam Workshop online and in-game. Train Simulator’s Steam Workshop scenarios are free and easy to download, adding many more hours of exciting gameplay. With scenarios being added daily, why don’t you check it out now!
