Rails for the Reconstruction - During the early German Federal Railroad period in the 1950s and1960s the German rail network was being rebuilt and expanded in many places. The rails being laid were longer than in the German State Railroad period, and the DB employed the type H 10 flat car, which was available in large quantities. Several of these cars were coupled together as a unit. The rails loaded on these car consists followed the curves in the track.
