For the first time in Train Simulator the ATP system is fully modelled to bring you 'Target & Distance' braking. This gives you a continuous braking curve so you can drive more smoothly from station to station. The CRH2A also comes with Constant Speed Control which will help free you from the regulator lever and allows you simply to monitor the train systems.
The ATP system prevents the train from speeding or passing a red signal. It uses a target speed indication and audible warnings to warn the driver if he is likely to exceed a speed profile that will cause the train to pass a red (danger) signal or exceed a speed restriction. The system will automatically apply the brakes if the driver fails to respond to these warnings. The system takes into account the speed and position of the train relative to the end of its 'movement authority' in issuing the warnings and applying the brakes.
In full control mode, the system is fully functioning. The system will get the line speed limit, next speed limit and the next signal aspect. When approaching the next speed limit (if it is lower than the current limit or if the next signal is red), the system will calculate the distance between the train's current position and the next speed limit (or red signal) and will apply the appropriate braking force to slow the train. Unlike the TVM3 or ATC-1 systems' interval speed curve operation, the braking curve on the CRH2A ATP system is a continuous speed curve from your current speed to the target speed.
The CRH2A EMU comes with a set of scenarios designed to be used with the Southwest China High Speed Network
(available to purchase from Just Trains) and can be used via the Quick Drive option in Train Simulator.
In addition to the scenarios listed below, three new scenarios were added in a software update on 1 September 2015.
CRH2A-01 Take This 2A from Chongqing to Suining (SWCHS)
Train service number：D5113
D5113 runs between Chengdu and Chongqing, but today you just need to drive this train to Suining. Stop at Hechuan and Tongnan to pick up passengers.
CRH2A-02 High Speed D5110 to Suining (SWCHS)
Train service number：D5110
This scenario requires you to drive D5110 from Chengdu to Suining. The weather is not good so be careful! Please follow your timetable, as a delayed train will cause the scenario to fail.
CRH2A-03 Suining to Chongqing with D5120 (SWCHS)
Train service number：D5120
Most trains between Chengdu and Chongqing will usually stop at Suining, but today you drive D5120 (Chengdu-Chongqing) from Suining to Chongqing and must pick up passengers at Hechuan and Tongnan.
CRH2A-04 A Quick Trip to Nanchong (SWCHS)
Train service number：D5172
A bus from Suining to Nanchong used to take three hours to complete this journey, but the trip only take 25 minutes by High Speed Train!
CRH2A-05 Chengdu to Chongqing Full Length Runs (SWCHS)
Train service number：D5102
On this full-length run from Chengdu to Chongqing you only need to stop at three stations. The whole trip with the CRH2A will take no more than two hours.
