The type Lgs 580 two-axle container cars have an interesting past. They emerged from the type Hbis 297 / 299 sliding wall boxcars, which were no longer needed in less-than-carload-lot service. Between 1998 and 2000, they were converted to the container transport cars required now. Their capacity includes two 20-foot containers up to a maximum of a 40-foot container. Conversely, the type Sgns 691 container transport cars equipped with trucks can be loaded with three 20-foot containers, two 30-foot containers, or a 45-foot container.
