DB Cargo UK is one of the freight operators in the United Kingdom. Owned by the German national railway, Deutsche Bahn, it was formed in 1996 as EWS when British Rail was privatised. It was first featured in Train Sim World in the Great Western Express add-on.


Before being purchased by Deutsche Bahn, the company was known as EWS (English, Welsh, Scottish Railway). Many DB Cargo UK locos still have EWS livery. As part of an update to Great Western Express, an EWS livery option was added to the BR Class 66.
