One of the most eagerly awaited German locomotives for Train Simulator, the DB BR 261 ‘Voith Gravita’ is now available in distinctive Deutsche Bahn livery.

The DB BR 261 10BB built by Voith, and named internally as the ‘Gravita’, is a diesel-hydraulic shunting freight locomotive able to operate over medium capacity main line freight routes.

Chosen to replace the ageing fleet of BR 290 series of diesel shunting locomotives, the Gravita is state-of-the-art and boasts a main-line capable cab setup.
Its sister vehicle, the BR 261, is virtually identical with only a diesel particulate filter between them.

The BR 261 10BB for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn livery and features combination throttle and brake, cruise control/speed set, engine start/stop, cab and instrument lighting, in-cab signalling, PZB and SIFA systems. Also included are Rnoos 64 and Zacns 95 freight cars.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the DB BR 261 ‘Voith Gravita’ on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Mannheim-Karlsruhe route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).


Three scenarios for the Mannheim-Karlsruhe route:

  • Cold Evening in Karlsruhe
  • Top of the Morning
  • The Great Marshall

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!
