Deutsche Bahn Opens New Training Centre in Cologne

Vehicle Maintenance

When it comes to vehicle maintenance, trainees will be able to work on original equipment that is actually fitted in trains. For example, the new centre has coffee machines from the on-board restaurants, air-conditioning units, different toilet models and the standard train control systems. However, the training centre also makes use of the potential of virtual reality (VR). Coupling trains, setting points or repairing an ICE pantograph: innovative VR applications are put to use to practise a number of different jobs.
