    Prototype: As early as the 1920s, DRG procured railway carriages in a steel construction design that were particularly intended for use on auxiliary lines. In contrast to the wagons for mainlines that boasted a wheel base of 8.5m, these vehicles only had a wheel base measurement of 6.2m. Only a few wagons were procured due to a lack of financial resources and the majority of them were used in the Silesian network as a trailer car to the ET 89. The concept was picked up once again at the end of the 1930s. Following a trial range in a rivet construction design, two larger ranges of Ci wagons (91 units) and BCi wagons (79 units) were procured. Due to the low weight, both versions were also manufactured in the form of a trailer car with self-heating systems at the same time. Here, 15 BCiv-34 vehicles were delivered in the VB 140 123-137 design and 92 Civ-33 vehicles were delivered in the VB 140 138-229 design. Their striking two-tone railcar paint coat ensures that they look different to the standard railway carriages. Thanks to their low dead weight, the wagons were primarily used in areas where it was only possible to transport low tensile loads due to gradients. Right into the 1960s, the Höllentalbahn ("Hell Valley Railway") from Freiburg to Neustadt and Seebrugg was one of the most important routes. In addition to running behind railcars, the trailer cars also often ran with battery railcars. All classes suffered significant losses during the Second World War. DB primarily converted the Civ-33 into control cars for battery railcars. However, some vehicles remained that could only be used as trailer cars and there were also some control cars for railcars. Following the decommissioning of the last battery railcars, the remaining control cars were put into the railway carriage fleet once again and were decommissioned once the useful service life was over. DR put a section of the trailer cars into the railway carriage fleet and painted these vehicles in the customary green. Thanks to their self-heating systems, the remaining trailer cars were usually operated together with diesel locomotives. Here, the range spanned from the Kö through to the V 100. The final decommissionings only took place at the beginning of the 1980s. Many wagons remained at DR and DB and the creation of a complete train in Seebrugg that is to re-enter service on the Höllentalbahn in the future is particularly noteworthy
