The car has a lighted train destination display on the end above the cab and it can be turned off separately in digital operation. The car has lighted train destination displays on the sides. The interior lighting and the train destination displays on the sides can be turned on and off digitally in conjunction with the other bi-level intermediate cars with the decoder in the cab control car. A fixed, defined sequence of cars is assigned to do this. Triple headlights and dual red marker lights change over with the direction of travel and can be controlled separately in digital operation. Long-distance headlights can also be controlled separately in digital operation. The light changeover, interior lighting, and the train destination displays on the sides will work in conventional operation. A standard coupler can be used on the cab end of the cab control car by removing a piece of skirting, thus allowing a locomotive to be coupled to it. There are red transparent marker light inserts at the end of the car without a cab. The car has prototypical Görlitz design trucks.
