Cars come with close coupler mechanisms, interior lighting and table lights individually lighted with LEDs. Total set length 860 mm / 33-7/8". In October of 1927 the European Schedule and Car Provision Conference in Prague decided to set up a daily express connection between Amsterdam / Hook of Holland and Basle - the birth of the "Rheingold". The fabled Nibelungen treasure was the source for the name of the train. On May 15, 1928 this train was run for the first time. A particular feature of the train was the extremely striking cream/blue painted cars that were a "special design based on the Pullman system". These cars actually offered a level of comfort that was never again achieved even in the postwar period right up to the present. Two cars, one with and one without a galley, formed a unit, and passengers were served at their seats. The decoration of the interiors came from designs of famous artists and architects and the seating was phenomenal. The 26 coaches and 3 baggage cars were also technically the most modern that the railroad had to offer. The "Rheingold" was the flagship of the German State Railroad Company (DRG) right up to its being withdrawn from service in the fall of 1939. Most of these cars did survive the war years almost undamaged, but they were no longer used in the years after. The new services offered by the German Federal Railroad in 1951 never achieved the luxury and elegance of the 1930s. The myth has thus remained preserved to this day.
