What's the name of the railway company of the Traxx class 285 in Tellig' s freight train starter set 01424. It's advertised as belonging to DB AG but it's unmarked. The supplied railcars are makes with DB AG. There is another Tellig BR 285 with same lack of marking p/n 04934 and that railway company is advertised as Express Rail (SK), which is Slovakia.

Tillig 01424: locomotive 92 80 1285 105-3 D-BTK, delivered to CBRail S.à r.l., Luxembourg, I can't find BTK
Here is the history of the Prototype.

Tillig 04934: locomotive 92 80 1285 107-9 D-CBR, D-CBR stands for Germany - CBRail Leasing GmbH = CBRail S.à r.l., Luxembourg. Here is the history of the Prototype. It was hired by Express Slovakia for a short time.

In the year 2013, the Macquarie European Rail Ltd took over the locomotives. It's also a leasing company.

In Europe there is new fashion to decorate the locomotives with huge "stickers", therefore they change quite often the livery. If the company has not advertisment partner the locomotives are usually only in basic color like this.
On top of that many small private companies lease their equipment either from big railway companies like DBAG, or from different equipment pools, ie those machines are running with their original numbers everywhere in Europe ( within EU). This means the both locomotives can be identical. ( with DBAG number even if it works for Express Rail.).

But both models aren't from DBAG (Deutsche Bahn AG). They were owned by the equipment company CBRail and leased to different private railroad companies.
The shorter numbers at the front sides are mostly from the owner. At the sides is the NVR-number (national vehicle register) with information about the country and the keeper.
