Passenger coach (pilot series) type Bage of the Deutsche Reichsbahn. Furnished model equipped ready to install interior lighting. Coupler pocket according to NEM 362 standards and close coupling mechanism.
■ Classic Epoch III model with decorative stripes
■ Precise replica of the delicately designed pilot series coach
■ Version with four side doors
■ 3-axle chassis With a total of 12 coaches, the Reko coaches of the pilot production was the smallest part of the Deutsche Reichsbahn's Reko programme. The coaches were manufactured in 1958 and tested for about a year before they went into series production. On the outside, the Reko coaches of the pilot production differed from the coaches of the series production only by four side doors that had a smaller design. Tests where carried out when passengers boarded and disembarked from the trains. The tests showed that Reko coaches with diagonally arranged doors were the best concept. The toilet was moved to the vestibule. Thanks to this design modification, it was possible to create space for four more seats. The side windows of the serial Reko coaches had a larger design and the compartments were enlarged as well. Despite of their special position in the vehicle fleet, the coaches, like their successor models, were used for a long time and could be found in various types of train compositions.
