By Edwin AartseSince December 2021, a 2nd Nightjet has been operating from the Netherlands towards the East. Nightjet 403 from Amsterdam Central to Zurich HB is the new connection
Despite the fact that the OBB is the operator of the Nightjet network, NS International, together with DB Fernverkehr and the SBB, is responsible for the train.
Nightjet 403 consists of only 5 carriages, 3 Couchettes lying carriages and 2 WLABm Sleeping carriages. Nightjet 403 will travel in combination with the Night IC 60403. In addition to the 5 Nightjet cars, 1 first class and 3 2nd class IC cars from the SBB and 4 second class IC cars from the DB are driving along.
The scenario consists of 10 parts on different routes. In this 8th part we drive on the Frankfurt - Karlsruhe route.
Today you drive the Nightjet 403 all the way from Amsterdam Central to Frankfurt am Main Hbf where the train makes a head and DB Fenverkehr will take over the train to Basel SBB.
In this 8th part, the scenario continues from Frankfurt am Main towards Karlsruhe. You start your night shift with the NJ 403/IC 60403 from Amsterdam to Zurich HB. With the BR 101 assigned to you, you take the train from NS-International and take the train all the way to Basel SBB. In this 8th part we drive to Karlsruhe Hbf and also stop in Mannheim Hbf on the way.
This is a realistic scenario. The player train and all AI Passenger trains will run according to the real 2022 timetable, which will take effect as of December 2021. Freight train timetables are fictitious.
