    On the basis of the UIC unit carriage Gmhs 53 DB developed an approximately 2 m long car, which also corresponded complies in all equipment features the UIC regulations. In contrast to its output type he had the new standard 2 m wide loading door. At UIC could at that time not yet agree on a larger standard design, this was followed later in the form of Glmms 61. Thus as Glm (s) hs was designated 50 cars little longer than the large-scale G-Wagen before the war, what is already in the time of construction of many controversies triggered. Was already called then a car with at least 12.5 m load length, so that the enlargement of the cargo hold many do not go far enough, while others were of the opinion that it would be too far away from the UIC regulations. Despite all these circumstances around 12,000 cars were built from 1953 to 1958 - to 1954 still with wooden walls, then with plate walls. About a quarter of all car received a hand brake, initially still with the characteristic sheet brakeman's cab. At least 700 cars received an e-heating, to run along the Expressgutverkehr in passenger trains can. Some cars were leased long-term and received advertising signs of the corresponding company. Until the mid-70s the car dropped out with wooden walls or were equipped with plate walls. Since 1965, the Glm (s), 50 hs as GBR (-v) denotes 245. 1980 after the heating pipes were usually omitted, this took place Umzeichnung to Gos (-UV) 245. In the 80s began the reduction in inventory, but major stocks were sold to the DR. In 1997, another 35 vehicles in inventory, the last three were retired in 2000.
