  • Prototype information

    The Blankenburg Research and Development Facility (FEW) recognized early on the need for railroad bulk material cars that were required for the transport of construction materials to modernize the infrastructure in reunited Germany. In 1993 a new design for an efficient unloading car was presented as a prototype, and the German Railroad, Inc. started buying it in 1994 as a regular production model. The rational design - large loading capacity of 59 metric tons, the ability to dump on both sides, built-in pneumatic cylinders and automatic control of the unloading hatches - make this and similar new cars attractive for inclusion in the DB AG"s further modernization of its rolling stock. These side dump cars are often used today in unit trains.
