Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The DB Schenker Company Train is a special train operated in the United Kingdom by freight operator DB Schenker, a division of Deutsche Bahn AG. It was assembled as the replacement for the company's aging managerial inspection saloon, and is used for entertaining corporate clients. It is notable for solving problems of electrical compatibility and indirectly leading to the reintroduction of regular daytime locomotive-hauled trains onto the National Rail network. The fixed configuration set consists of three British Rail Mark 3 coaches sandwiched between a driving trailer and locomotive. The concept of rewiring older passenger rolling stock for compatibility with different electric systems lead to the reintroduction of locomotive-hauled services by train operating companies within the United Kingdom.
