These new boats and commanders included U-410 (Kptlt Kurt Sturm), U-221 (ObltzS Hans-Hartwig Trojer) and U-617 (Kptlt Albrecht Brandi), a trio who became some of the flotilla's most successful captains. Brandi became renowned for sinking four ships on his first operational patrol. The flotilla's remaining aces (Hans-JOrgen Hellriegel, Erich Topp, Karl Thurmann, Wilhelm Schulze and Gerd Kelbling) had all taken trainee U-boat commanders with them on their patrols, and continued to pass on their knowledge to the newcomers.

Both the train itself and the base in St Nazaire were designed to be fully self-supporting. The flotilla train (nicknamed the 'BdU Special') continued to run regular services between Kiel and St Nazaire until the summer of 1944, transporting crews home on leave, or recruits west to begin their service. In addition, a small convoy of trucks spent the war shuttling between Kiel and the Atlantic ports, carrying mail, baggage and administrative files.
