About the game
Enter the virtual cab and experience a train driver’s operations at the highest level of realism. ZUSI 3 Aerosoft Edition is a train simulation for PCs, the professional version of which is also being used in railway companies for engine driver training. It features accurate prototypical routes, authentic driving and braking physics, prototypical and fully functional signalling, realistic timetables, and many variants of the train protection systems PZB, LZB, and ETCS.
This train simulator is especially suited for ambitious hobby train drivers, while beginners can easily and intuitively dive into the world of train simulation thanks to various assistance options – for example, setting the protection systems less restrictive for an easier learning curve.
In total, ZUSI 3 comes with 500 kilometres of drivable routes, including the route Cologne– Düsseldorf that was developed for the Aerosoft Edition, the upper Ruhr valley railway, the marsh railway Heide–Westerland, and the ICE route Kassel-Göttingen. The rolling stock comprises more than 200 locomotive and EMU/DMU variants, including the ICE as well as DB cl 101, cl 141, cl 146, and cl 185. More than 150 passenger coaches and 200 freight wagons complete the drivable trains.
ZUSI 3 is also extensively expandable. The included editors can be used to create user content for Zusi to share them with the community.
