  • Prototype information

    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.
