Henschel Wegmann Zug coaches


The Henschel Wegmann zug was a special built train to compete with the diesel trainsets in the thirties. The train consisted of coaches made by Wegmann and a locomotive built by Henschel (the BR 61). The first ride of the train was on 13 June 1936 as D53/54 and D57/58 between Berlin Anhalter Bf and Dresden Hbf. When the war began the service of this train stopped. After the war the coaches were going to the DB and were used for the famous Blauer Enzian train between Hamburg and München. Only the four coaches which are mentioned below are made.

This coach was the end coach of the train. It offered seats to 60 passengers. 24 seats in second class and 32 seats in the third class and four seats on the observation deck. This observation deck was located at the rear of the coach where the passengers had a panoramic view. The idea of the observation deck came from the American trains who had often such observation decks at the rear of the trains. The observation deck in the Henschel Wegmann zug had four movable chairs.

This coach is built in 1935 by Wegmann and had the number 10 401.
