Luggage coaches

D4üm-60/Düm 902
Düms 905


At the time that the DB developed the express train coaches, they also developed luggage coaches of type "m". In 1954 a prototype was built on the basis of a yl-coach, and in 1960 a prototype was built on the basis of a m-coach. Between 1960 and 1972 the DB ordered 356 luggage coaches. The luggage coaches got a frame which was asymmetric. On both sides of the coach were two rolling doors of each 2500 mm width. Also the coach corridors were closed by a rolling door. The luggage coaches had all four customs compartments.

Technically speaking the coaches are falling under the coaches of Bauart 1962.
