Introduction
In 1961 the UIC established standard design coach types. The mcoaches of the DB became the standard design coach with type indication "X". The mcoach was improved on some points, so that it complied with the demands of the UIC to became a standard design type.
All mcoaches from 1962 were built according these new standards. For example the entrance swingdoors were replaced for combined swing/folding doors, the corridors between the coaches were provided with self closing sliding doors instead of folding doors which didn't closed automatically. The sidewalls were strenghtened by extra pillars.
Also the interiors of the coaches were more friendly furnished than coaches Bauart 1954. In the second class were the seats upholstered with red imitation leather, the walls were upholstered with imitation wood. In the second class were 12 compartments, and in the first class 11 compartments.
The coaches from 1963 got windows with a width of 1200 mm. These dimensions were afterwards adjusted in the UIC type X, which had initially windows of 1000 mm width. When you look to the window width of the coach, you can distinguish between coaches Bauart 1954 and coaches Bauart 1962.
B4üm61/Büm 233
In 1962 the DB ordered 97 second class coaches type B4üm61. These coaches got the numbers 19 238  19 334. From 1966 the indication was changed to Büm 233 and the numbers changed to 51 80 2240 900  51 80 2240 996.
The coaches were suitable for four tensions, namely: 1000V 17Hz AC, 1500V 50Hz AC, 1500V DC and 3000V DC. The coaches could also heated up with steam, when it was available. Heating coaches with steam was done frequently during epoch III, the steam came from the locomotive. Locomotives like the V 200 were equiped with a steam installation for heating passenger trains.
