it will be nice to have ability to switch completely to electricity with 3rail line (one powered) and get electric locomotive (IRL all locomotives are electric)

Can't address you on specific points due to that.
I will point out that unless we're now dealing with actual size manufacturing(etc.) in the game, the game seems to be simulating game worlds above the regional size. (Based mostly on how close together the resource fields are, even on average and lower.) Additionally, Germany falls in the Regional level of service, based on distances they have to cover, (it's smaller than most States in the US,) and don't have to worry too much about the limited capacity of batteries or capcitors, as well as the time and cost of electrification.
I'll also point out that having electrified trains means you (usually) can't cross into another region's rail system (without special equipment, even assuming they're electrified), and that you'd have to deal with all the replacements and retro-fitting.
Should we get fully electric engines and rails, the time for removing/replacing rails needs to be substantially increased to reflect just how large an undertaking it is to switch to electric.
