The DB BR 1442 is a variant of the Bombardier Talent 2 series of locomotives. It is featured in the Rapid Transit dlc for Train Sim World. The units are operated exclusively by Deutsche Bahn on the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland. Unlike most DB trains, the DB BR 1442 does not have a DB Traffic Red livery but a silver S-Bahn livery. 36 of the Mitteldeutschland units operate in 3-car formation, coupling together to form 6-car double units during rush hour.

Deutsche BahnEdit

The DB BR 1442 is operated on the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland by Deutsche Bahn since manufacture in 2013 and 2015. They were ordered specifically to comply with the new regulations for the Leipzig City Tunnel. The DB BR 1442 is used on all of the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland routes, replacing older locomotives such as the DB BR 143.
