Germany’s sleek, modern multiple units are synonymous with efficiency and comfort, none more so than the DB BR 474.3, now available for Train Simulator, here at trainsim.store.

The DB BR 474 is an electrical multiple unit built between 1996 and 2001, and again between 2006 and 2007, designed exclusively for Hamburg S-Bahn services. 

The units have a top speed of 100 km/h (62 miles) and can run on 1200V DC Third Rail and 15kV AC overhead power supply, the latter being exclusive to the .3 variant of the BR 474. There were 112 BR 474s built in total, 24 of these being the .3 variation.

The first DB BR 474s were ordered in 1994 to begin replacing older units on the Hamburg S-Bahn, which itself was nearing 60 years old. The initial batch of 45 units was delivered in 1996 and featured a number of improvements to their predecessors, including computer control.

A second batch of BR 474s was ordered in 1996 and deliveries of these finished in 2001. However, the DB BR 474 did have some rather significant problems in the late 1990s, where heavy vibrations caused deficiencies with the ventilation, engine and door opening mechanism.

The DB BR 474.3 was delivered between 2006 and 2007, nine new coaches and 33 from the second batch made up these new units., The main difference between the .3 and other variations of the Class is the addition of a pantograph in the intermediate coach so they can also run on 15kV AC overhead power lines.

A modernisation of the DB BR 474 was planned for 2012 and they were to be known as the 474 Plus. However, apart from a prototype which was upgraded and shown publicly in July 2011, no other units have currently been modernised due to high costs and a lack of available funding.

The DB BR 474.3 for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn Traffic Red livery and features combination throttle and brake, cab and instrument lighting, in-cab signalling, safety systems, PZB and SIFA.
