About this Product

Surselva Line: Also known as the Oberländerlinie (Highland Line), the 50km railway from Reichenau-Tamins to Disentis/Mustér traverses the challenging and eye-catching Rhine Gorge. Built in the early 1900s, this iconic metre-gauge line today acts as a key corridor for both regional, express and freight services, and you can explore it in Train Simulator!

Please Note: RhB Enhancement Pack 02 Add-On is required, as a separate purchase, in order to play the scenarios featured in this add-on.

Pack 02: Get ready for another helping of classic Arosa Line traction with the authentic RhB Enhancement Pack 02 for Train Simulator! A new range of Alpine challenges await you inside…

First built in 1973, the Ge 4/4 II was designed as a capable replacement to the older and unreliable Ge 6/6 I. More would be introduced in 1984, making a total of 23 locomotives to serve the Rhaetian Railway’s core network. They share resemblance to locomotives of the Swiss Federal Railways, but are broadly different under the hood, well-suited for the challenging Alpine landscape which awaited them in their mixed-traffic service.

After being proposed in 1890, the railway via the Rhine Gorge was built in sections, with the first opening in 1903. Its construction time was delayed by many factors, including the higher priority construction of the Albula Line around the same time, as well as the difficult, brittle and flood-prone terrain. Many of the local materials were not suitable to build the line, with lots having to be imported from other, distant quarries.

When finally finished, the Surselva Line boasted a 1.6% grade, plenty of bespoke infrastructure, and fantastic views. It could not only serve as a tourism line, with unmatched access to the mountainous terrain, but also allowed for Anterior Rhine industries to flourish along the route.

The Surselva Line runs roughly east to west, branching off from the line towards Thusis at Reichenau-Tamins, before entering into something of a dance with the Rhine and Ruinaulta gorges, crossing the terrain by means of viaducts, tunnels and sweeping curves.

Serving a total of 13 stations, there’s plenty of passenger operations on the Surselva Line, as well as local freight traffic, and Rivet Games have brought this picturesque line to life Train Simulator!

The classification of the Ge 4/4 II indicates that it is the RhB’s second example of a locomotive which has 4 axles, all of which are powered. The 23 locomotives are numbered from 611 to 633; all of them are named after towns served by the RhB network, and brandish the relevant coat of arms next to the locomotive name. While the standard RhB red livery is applied across the fleet, multiple locomotives actually feature promotional designs depicting various events and advertisements.

In 1997, the Ge 4/4 II fleet was permitted to work along the famed Arosa Line as freight and passenger locomotives, as the 25 km mountain railway was converted to the same overhead system as the rest of the RhB network; 2400 V DC to 11 kV 16.7 Hz AC. The Ge 4/4 II’s power output was ideal for the sharp grades and ever-growing traffic, and they would easily work passengers and freight in tandem, making for most unique consists throughout the valley.

Age is always a concern with classic traction, however the entire Ge 4/4 II fleet was modernised to keep up with ever-advancing technologies. New headlight clusters were fitted on several locomotives from 1999, and from 2004 until 2008, analogue components were taken out with digitised equivalents installed.
