The Regiocitadis is a three-carriage regional tram for lightrail networks. In The Hague, it operates on the city tramway network, which includes the former railway to Zoetermeer, now transformed for use by these trams (instead of trains). On the The Hague to Leidschenveen section, the tracks are shared with metro's of the Rotterdam subway system. This lightrail part of the network rund under the name "RandstadRail".

A few years ago, it was speculated the HTM regiocitadis trams would be repainted into the "R-NET" livery. Concept drawings were released, but the repaint never happened. In the simulator, an R-NET version is available:

The Kassel variant is equipped with a diesel engine for use on non-electrified tracks.


In order to run on the Rijndam and Toronto tram networks (where ATB has been installed as a requirement of the simulator), the ATB system is installed on these trams. However, unlike on the subway trains, this version will not slow your tram to a stop. It will only cut out traction when you are 5km/h over the speed limit it receives from the track signals. Just remember to STOP before an S-sign along the track when the ATB signal shows "10 km/h", as this is essentially seen as a red signal.

When running with ROZ (Drive-on-Sight), no maximum speed is shown or enforced.

These vehicles have the ZUB system installed, so you can drive on all tracks equipped with this system.

The HTM variants are equipped with the ARI system, which is in use in the The Hague tram tunnel in the city center. If this system is implemented in the route you are driving, it will bring you to a stop if you go over the speed limit. If you approach a red signal, it will bring you to a stop if your speed is above 35 km/h at 45 meters before the signal. After this, it will stop you again if you exeed 10 km/h, until you have passed a transponder which gives you a higher speedlimit again.


When you want to couple two vehicles together, you must open the coupler first on both vehicles. Do this with "Ctrl+Shift+O" from both (active) cabs. After uncoupling, the couplers can be closed again with "O".

Codes for activities

To use them in your own activities, you can use these codes:

<train pack="TramNL" file="HTM_Regiocitadis.xml"/>
<train pack="TramNL" file="HTM_Regiocitadis_RNET"/>
<train pack="TramNL" file="KVG_Regiocitadis.xml"/>

Example of how to place a Regiocitadis tram in an activity:

<consist start="HREM22">
	<train pack="TramNL" file="HTM_Regiocitadis.xml">
		<pantographs raised="true"/>
   		<car id="0" enabled="true" ai="611"/>
