This train we have published on the foreign trains in Luxembourg page because it looks like a foreign train, and yes, indeed it is
an authentic German class Br 628 two coach railbus. But strictly speaking two of these trains were not foreign for Luxembourg, but
were owned by the CFL. Here the train is in DB's 1980s "minttürkis" colouring scheme and with a DB logo, operated by DB, and indeed
just this unique train actually also was a DB train. But you could only tell it by their unique number and nothing else. They were
used in regional services between Luxembourg and Trier in Saarland, Germany. Later these same trains were painted red in the German
typical "Verkehrsrot" painting scheme and during that time the DB logo at the front was replaced by a CFL logo on those ones owned
by CFL. Nevertheless all the trains remained operated by DB. When new Bombardier TRAXX locomotives and Bombardier double decker
coaches and even later Stadler KISS EMUs replaced them on the Luxembourg to Trier route, some of these CFL owned trains found a new
home in northern Germany, where CFL now owns a small previously private rail company neg, Norddeutsche Eisenbahn Gesellschaft Niebüll,
operating between Niebüll and Dagebüll on the North sea coast.
