She therefore commissioned a construction community led by the Waggonfabrik Uerdingen with the development of 26.4 m-Bahnpostwagen for express trains. According to the state of the art, there were the following requirements, such as the widening of the sliding doors for container traffic, increase of the load weight from 20 to 25 t, car bodies matching the appearance of the DB cars, installation of an air heating and dedusting system and Gummwulstübergänge with roller shutters. Out came train mail cars, which harmonized excellently with the new DB cars outwardly. Their car bodies were built in welded sectional steel construction in self-supporting shell construction, with the aprons formed part of the supporting structure. Their windows consisted of safety glass with wire insert and closed almost flush with the outer wall. Special emphasis was placed on good heat and sound insulation. Their interior had a functional tripartite division in the letter room, Aussackraum and packing room. The equipment was made according to the most modern aspects such as luggage structures in the roof space, Packgestänge, Packroste, letterboxes, sorting, folding and Aussacktische, bag spans, letter bag rods and hatches. All exterior doors were designed as wide, single-leaf sliding doors in light metal construction. Noteworthy was the mostly underfloor mounted air heating and dedusting system. Sufficient fluorescent lamps in a previously unattained illuminance caused a good illumination at all workstations. According to their purpose, the railway mailboxes were set up for the carriage of mail of all kinds. All postal items (letters, parcels and parcels) were processed before and during the journey. Of course, the use of these cars was mainly in the night, since the bulk of the mail was delivered in the afternoon or evening by the sender and should reach the destination the next morning. Some of the cars were in special mail trains in use, but also their provision in D- and E-trains as well as other types of trains of the German Federal Railways belonged to the daily business. It was not until 1997 that the era of railway mail came to an end, as Deutsche Post now favored sorting in newly created, automated letter distribution centers, which were no longer connected to the railways, with a fundamental restructuring. characteristics e epoch IV ) LED interior lighting can be retrofitted ï Märklin short couplings in standard mount with link guide. \ Only for adults
