Note 23-12-2021: Updated to be compatible with Hageningen tram network in Metrosimulator 3.17, by adding "ROZ" (Rijden op Zicht / Drive on sight, as alternative to ATB and ZUB train protection). If you want to use these trams on this tram network and you have downloaded this package before this date, please re-download.

The K4500 is a low-floor Flexity Swift tram, which is used on the tram network in Köln, Germany. In the period 2005-2007, 69 of these trams have been delivered by Bombardier.

The original 3D model of the tram was made by ARGO Industries. Conversion/animation for Metrosimulator by Sjoerd Ydema.

Operations In Simulator

In Metrosimulator, the vehicles are equipped with both train protection systems (LZB/ATB and ZUB), so you can use them on the entire tram network. An indicator on the control panel shows which system is active. As the Rotterdam ATB system used in the simulator is actually "LZB801", and this is a German tram, the control panel in the tram shows "LZB" instead of "ATB". Other than that, there is no difference in functionality during the simulation.

You can couple two vehicles together; the couplers will appear automatically when the connection is made.

In order to use the vehicles in your own activities, you can use these code lines:

  • <train pack="K4500" file="K4500_Koln.xml"/>
  • <train pack="K4500" file="K4500_Croydon.xml"/> (Fictional Croydon Tramlink livery. In reality, Croydon uses K4000 trams instead of the K4500)
