Starting in 1954 the German Federal Railroad (DB) rebuilt a large number of old two-, three-, and four-axle passenger cars into modern cars. The car bodies for these "Umbauwagen" or "rebuild" cars were completely new and were built using a framework type of construction design. Old trucks, mostly Prussian designs, were reused for these cars.
