Task Log Edit

  • Welcome to this Talent 2 articulated electric multiple unit built by Bombardier Transportation. This is a three car variant delivered to the S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland network in 2013
  • During this brief introduction, we will cover how to start up the unit for operation; get moving; and then how to bring the unit to a stop.
  • To start with, climb aboard via the Cab Dorr and sit in the Driver’s seat
  • During normal operation, this unit draws electricity from the overhead catenary via a pantograph. However, since the pantograph is currently in the down position, we have to power the initial systems by priming the auxiliary battery.
  • With power available, use the Master Key to unlock the control desk and turn on the Multi-Functional Displays.
  • Now activate the pantograph, so that it raises up and makes contact with the overhead catenary.
  • Set the exterior lights for normal operation.
  • Set the Reverser to Forward.
  • Sound the horn to warn anyone around that the unit is about to move.
  • The unit has two braking systems: an indirect brake and a blended brake that is part of the Power/Brake handle.
  • Set the indirect brake to Release. This brake is generally not required during normal operation but can be used in cases of emergency.
  • Finally, switch off the Parking Brake.
  • Move the Power/Brake handle as required and the train will begin to accelerate.
  • Great work, the unit is now moving.
  • Set the Power/Brake handle back to the neutral position
  • Before travelling too far, let’s bring the train to a halt.
  • To do this, move the Power/Brake handle as required.
  • Now that the unit has stopped, press the Parking Brake On button.
  • Well done. That concludes this brief introduction to the Talent 2 articulated electric multiple unit.
  • A manual is also included which covers everything in this tutorial and more.
