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. This car can be combined with the 43222 car to form a typical Era III express train "Schürzenwagen" consist. The German Federal Railroad class V 200.0 diesel-hydraulic locomotive (Märklin-model 39800) goes well with "Schürzenwagen" passenger cars.
