These instructions are based on the DB BR 112.1 tutorial included with DTG’s TSW2 Haupstrecke Hamburg-Lübeck route. Scenarios or sessions that begin with the driver sitting in the cab probably do not require some of the preliminary steps included here. In some cases, initial instructions will be provided in the activity, but this is not always the case.
