Traveling in Comfort in Streamlined Cars – The former German State Railroad demonstrated a high level of comfort and technical progress with the ”Schürzenwagen” (”skirted passenger cars”) purchased starting in 1939. These cars were designed for a speed of 160 km/h / 100 mph and acquired their nickname from the tumble-home part of the car body in the form of a streamlined skirting down by the car frame. The DR wanted to use these completely welded cars to speed up trains pulled by steam locomotives in the 1930s. A large number of ”Schürzenwagen” remained in the western zones of Germany after World War II, and they were gradually modernized by the German Federal Railroad as well as rebuilt from mixed class cars to cars with first class seating only. A number of units were painted in blue starting in 1951 for the revived legendary ”Rheingold”. These cars thus experienced the high point of their service life. The ”Schürzenwagen” were in service on the DB well into the 1980s.

SBB Lightweight Steel Passenger Cars – Comfortable and Successful – The use of the first lightweight steel coaches on the route Zürich-Geneva starting in 1937 began the ”New Era” on the SBB in passenger service between cities. Due to the growing competition in the 1930s from automobiles at that time, very modern passenger cars were developed in cooperation between the SBB and SWS (Schlieren). The lightweight concept of these two organizations with a reduction in the weight of the cars unloaded from between 36 and 39 metric tons to between 25 and 27 metric tons enabled faster speeds on curves and a definite increase the train speeds. The doors on the sides of the cars were moved from the ends of the cars to the area between the trucks because of the requirement for easier boarding of the cars and as low a center of gravity for the cars as possible. This innovation as well as the double doors originally designed for regional passenger trains enabled shorter stops in stations. As a result cars with simple entry doors followed later. These cars were built up to the end of the 1960s, and during this time different designs and arrangements of doors as well as different window arrangements and other modifications resulted in a great number of variations in lightweight steel cars, including cars with center entry doors and later even with entry doors on the ends. The initial arrangement of the doors in the direction of the cars’ center had become necessary in order to improve the running characteristics and gain space for the trucks, which were set wide apart from each other. The costs of this design paid off, and the SBB used its comfortable, lightweight cars exclusively in city-to-city long distance service for almost 3 decades for the lightweight express trains created at that time. It was the middle of the 1950s before the SBB’s financial situation allowed it to purchase lightweight steel coaches in large numbers and subsequently use these cars in regional passenger service. During this phase these cars were also equipped with control lines for push/pull service. A total of about 2,400 units were built and they formed the backbone of the SBB’s passenger car roster. The lightweight steel coaches made up a harmonious whole with the class Re 4/4 I electric locomotives (with two trucks), which were perfect in terms of technology and appearance. From 1947 on these cars and locomotives in particular consistently defined the look of Swiss train consists.
The lightweight steel passenger cars go well with the Re 4/4 I electric locomotive, item no. 39420.

Express Train Travel during the Economic Miracle. After the 1950s gave the German Federal Republic (West Germany) an economic upswing and the most important, private basic needs had been covered, many West Germans had a desire to travel. Yet, before the great growth in automobile ownership, the demand was growing for another series of modern passenger cars for long distance express service. The number of new design express train passenger cars placed into service since 1954 was no longer sufficient for this purpose. The DB therefore placed additional modern express train passenger cars into service from 1963 on. The following express train passenger car types belonged to this family of new cars: A4üm-61, 1st class (later the type Am 203), B4üm-63, 2nd class (later the type Bm 234), AB4üm-63, 1st/2nd class (later the type ABm 225), BRbu4üm-61, half dining car, 2nd class (later the type RBbumh 282), and BD4üm-61, half baggage car, 2nd class (later the type BDms 273). The designs for these cars followed for the most part the concept for the first postwar car types of 1953/54, but folding doors were used for the entry doors on the sides of the cars. Externally, the sliding windows with bright gold oxidized lightweight metal frames attracted attention also. The interiors experienced a series of changes in details. In addition, sliding doors were built into the ends of the cars. The 1st class cars with a cobalt blue paint scheme clearly stood out from the 2nd class cars and baggage cars in their chrome oxide green schemes. These consists were among the typical Era III trains used by the ”Economic Miracle children”, who had just arrived into a modest prosperity, to travel during their vacations.
This car can be combined with the 43920, 43930, 43940, and 43950 car models to make up a typical Era III express train car consist.

The Fast F-Zug trains of the German Federal Railroad – At the start of the 1950s, the new German Federal Railroad went back to the prewar tradition of the legendary FD-Zug trains (long distance express trains) and created a new train category with the F-Zug trains (cross-border long distance D-Zug express trains and long distance express trains). These trains were run with mostly 1st class cars and consisted of special cars for this important long distance service. The route network for these trains was also called the ”blue F-Zug network” because of the blue paint scheme on the passenger cars in the trains. Train number F 37, ”Hans Sachs”, from Munich to Hagen, had one of the particularly long routes. The subdued red of the Mitropa dining cars used in these trains contrasted effectively with the rest of the train consist and helped provide the quality look of the F-Zug express trains so highly prized by passengers in the 1950s and 1960s.
A lighting kit will be available later.

Express Train Travel during the Economic Miracle. After the 1950s gave the German Federal Republic (West Germany) an economic upswing and the most important, private basic needs had been covered, many West Germans had a desire to travel. Yet, before the great growth in automobile ownership, the demand was growing for another series of modern passenger cars for long distance express service. The number of new design express train passenger cars placed into service since 1954 was no longer sufficient for this purpose. The DB therefore placed additional modern express train passenger cars into service from 1963 on. The following express train passenger car types belonged to this family of new cars: A4üm-61, 1st class (later the type Am 203), B4üm-63, 2nd class (later the type Bm 234), AB4üm-63, 1st/2nd class (later the type ABm 225), BRbu4üm-61, half dining car, 2nd class (later the type RBbumh 282), and BD4üm-61, half baggage car, 2nd class (later the type BDms 273). The designs for these cars followed for the most part the concept for the first postwar car types of 1953/54, but folding doors were used for the entry doors on the sides of the cars. Externally, the sliding windows with bright gold oxidized lightweight metal frames attracted attention also. The interiors experienced a series of changes in details. In addition, sliding doors were built into the ends of the cars. The 1st class cars with a cobalt blue paint scheme clearly stood out from the 2nd class cars and baggage cars in their chrome oxide green schemes. These consists were among the typical Era III trains used by the ”Economic Miracle children”, who had just arrived into a modest prosperity, to travel during their vacations.
This car can be combined with the 43910, 43920, 43940, and 43950 car models to make up a typical Era III express train car consist.

DRG Freight Service – Era II for the German State Railroad Company (DRG) extended from 1920 to 1945. The image of freight trains from this era was very much characterized by long consists of two-axle cars. Freight cars with more axles or with trucks were the exception then. The consists usually conveyed the image of a colorful mix of all kinds of different car designs, because the individual provincial railroads participated in the founding of the DRG with their existing pools of cars. The DRG also introduced air brakes on all of the cars. Although this innovation did away with the need for protection against the weather for brakemen, the brakeman’s cabs remained for a long time even on rebuilt cars. In addition, the freight train service that went all over Germany now under the DRG management made for a large variety of cars on the railroad, because transport by road was hardly an alternative at that time. Hence, at that time almost any kind of freight you could imagine was shipped by rail, particularly over long routes. The variety in loads resulting from this situation also provided a colorful look to freight train consists.
