3-piece set heavy duty wagons type Samms of the Deutsche Bundesbahn DB. Epoch IV.
The wagons have different running numbers than the vehicles of the the set 84551. They carry glowing slabs.
Model with coupler pocket according to NEM 355 and close coupling mechanism.
Prototype: The company Krupp owned roll mills in Bochum and blast furnaces in Duisburg-Rheinhausen. The slabs from Rheinhausen were transported glowing, so it was possible to directly roll them in Bochum. For this purpose, existing heavy goods vehicles were equipped with a thermal hood. This saved time and energy to the workers in Bochum since it was no longer necessary to re-heat the slabs. The trains usually consisted of 2-6 cars and very often had an additional torpedo ladle. The cars did not run in standard goods trains and frequently were hauled by steam locomotives of the series BR 044.
Coupling:NEM shaft 355 with close coupling mechanism
Length over buffer:306 mm
