LINT 41 consists of two parts. Some transportation companies offer ticket machines in the door area. The two-piece railcars have two 315-kilowatt (422 hp) engines.
The trains are mainly used in Northern Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia. They are also quite popular in other European countries. For example in Denmark they are being used by the largest non-state-owned operator, Arriva (a total of 43 units: 30 delivered in 2004-2005, 11 delivered in 2010–11 and 2 delivered in 2012) as well as by Lokalbanen A/S and Regionstog (a total of 42 units delivered in 2006-2007). In the eastern provinces of the Netherlands, they are operated by Syntus.
