The add-on „Koeblitzer Mountain Route“ is a continued development of the freeware route Altenburg-Wildau by the dutch developer Siegfried Derks, aka SAD.
Geographically it could be somewhere situated in the greater area of Trier, Germany, where the developer has created a phantasy route which seems to fit reality perfectly. More than 1000 3D-models enrich this virtual reality. Each village has its own individual church building. The town of Altenburg, which is not to be confused with the town of the same name in Thueringen, features an original replica of the cathedral of Trier.
A lot of work has also been dedicated to the vegetation enriching the feel of running along the tracks. The region which has been created thrives through farming. From corn to fruit, from grain to sunflower fields, it´s all there.
The location is set to the year 2000, a time where the local railroads have left the tracks to rot and where maintenance was an unknown word. Stop stations and former stations are under a growth of vegetation. Tracks are overgrown, etc. Modern shelter huts are right beside old and abandoned station buildings, switch towers come with broken windows as the new dispatch centers have taken over.
