What's the railway co. for the BR 285 in Tillig starter set

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.

Hello there !

Into the French rail fans and model railroading forums, we had discussions about this diesel-electric locomotive type, as the SNCF (French Railways) ordered for 30 locos, with an option for 50 more locos. These locomotives were intended for freight trains towards the main ports of Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Akiem, a locomotive leasing company, had an agreement with Bombardier, so actually, 11 of these locos are sticked with Akiem livery. The last 4 locos got "Fret SNCF" well known livery (white, green and grey). The initial batch of 80 locos became a smaller batch of 15 locos ! :lol:

For this specific model coming on the Tillig TT scale starter set, well, it could be used for any freight service (including small local freight trains and shunting activities, from steel works to chemical industry ...) with Epoch V and VI freight wagons. In France, we like to call these liveries as "ghost livery", unlike former and characteristic liveries on BB 67400, BB 66000, BB 63000, BB 22200, BB 25000 series ...)

Here is the "Fret SNCF" livery, but the front locomotive number is a German one ...

No doubt about the fact that trains in use on French Railways network have become a messy patchwork, with all these filming ! :mrgreen:
