    T16482 – (DB AG) Class 648.1 Commuter Service Powered Rail Car as "World Championship Train" – Sauerland Winter Sports Region The LINT 41 is currently the most successful sales hit of Alstom LHB, Inc. in Salzgitter, whereby four variants are now being marketed internationally under the label "Coradia LINT". The LINT 27 is a one-part, four-axle powered rail car, while the LINT 41 comes as a six-axle, two-part unit. The LINT 54 is being offered in an eight-axle, two-part version but with longer car bodies. It can be expanded to the LINT 81 by the addition of another motorized intermediate car. The number behind the name gives the approximate train length in meters. The design of the LINT 41 is set up as modules corresponding to the criteria for modern vehicle construction. This allows adjustments and changes according to customer requirements at any time. Welded steel shapes reinforced at the ends are used on the underframe. The car bodies are built in welded lightweight steel construction as "torsion resistant tubes" of mostly non-rusting types of steel. A reinforced steel design provides the necessary safety under the ends of the unit made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic screwed and cemented together. Around 70% of the car length on the LINT 41 is designed as low floor area, whereby the floor height on the low version (LINT 41) is 598 mm / 23-1/2 inches and is 780 mm / 30-11/16" on the high version (LINT 41/H). The two car bodies are supported on the center Jakobs truck. The combined rubber-air-suspension provides the necessary riding comfort and additional lateral motion shock absorbers guarantee a quiet ride. In 2000/01 the DB initially purchased six units of the LINT 41/H as road numbers 648 001-006 for regional service in Schleswig-Holstein. By 2005, the DB placed 21 LINT 41/H units (648 101-121) and seven normal LINT 41 units (648 201-207) into service for operation on lines in the Sauerland area and in the Siegen Three Countries Corner area. Ski racks were installed in the general-purpose area in both versions. In January of 2015, road number 648 110 decorated with the winter sports themes was presented to the public for the bob and skeleton world championships that took place from February 23 to March 8, 2015 in Winterberg in the Hochsauerland County. The plan was for this train to advertise as "World Championship Train" for the "Sauerland Winter Sports Region". With its design, this specially decorated powered rail car clearly stood out from the DB Regio NRW's otherwise red trains. After the world championship, it also still served as an attractive advertising medium for the "Sauerland Winter Sports Region" situated near the Ruhr area.
