Pro Range

The Pro Range is aimed toward the serious train simulation enthusiast looking for a complex machine to master. Each product is designed to provide education and entertainment for users.  Xbox controller and HUD interface support do not come as standard and users will need to read the accompanying documentation to fully understand the operation of this advanced simulation.


The BR143 Add-On offers one of the most accurate and involving locomotive driving experiences currently available for Train Simulator 2012. With two liveries, a driveable Steuerwagen and five scenarios for the Cologne-Dusseldorf Expansion Pack, the BR143 is a great add-on for anyone who really wants to DRIVE!

The BR143 was introduced in 1985 by Deutsche Bahn as a general purpose locomotive for passenger and freight duties, with an output of 3,720 kW (4,990 horsepower) and top speed of 120 km/h (75mph). A total of 636 examples were produced by the time production came to an end, and most are still in service.

The BR143 for Train Simulator 2012 has been developed in wonderful detail by virtualRailroads to provide a highly-accurate driving simulation. As a result, the locomotive utilises a great many more controls than the majority of our locos, and most drivers will find that it is necessary to read the manual thoroughly and familiarise themselves with the controls and driving modes. All aspects of the locomotive’s operation have been replicated with great attention to detail, however this means that there are many additional controls to get to grips with. Full controls are not accessible via the Cab Control HUD display: please refer to the manual for full details of the operating controls.

PLEASE NOTE: the Cologne-Dusseldorf Expansion Pack is required to play the scenarios included with this add-on.
