Prototype information

Softly Asleep and Swiftly to Your Destination - The sleeping and dining car operator Mitropa also had new sleeping cars built at the same time as the dining cars placed into service in the 1930s to go with the DRG"s "Schürzenwagen" streamlined passenger cars. These cars also had the new Mitropa "standard length" of 23.50 meters / 77 feet 1-3/16 inches and also were provided with the smooth running "Görlitz type III design" heavy trucks. Passengers appreciated the high level of comfort in these cars. These cars therefore also ran well into the German Federal Railroad era.
