Product Features and Details
Model: Rail transport car type Sml of the K.Bay.Sts.B.. Epoch I. Coupler pocket according to NEM 355 standards and close coupling motion link.
When the Länderbahnen started operating, they bought rail transport cars that had a loading length of 13 m. The cars initially were intended for the transportation of 12 m long rails. The first rail transport cars had 12 side stanchions, low end walls and load restraints. In the early 1970s the last cars were scrapped or being used as a maintenance car. Prototype: The Royal Bavarian State Railways (K.Bay.Sts.B.) was founded 175 years ago. With a railway network of 8526 kilometers, the K.Bay.Sts.B. became at the end of World War I, the second largest German Länderbahn after the Prussian State Railways.(The length of the entire network also included the lines of the Pfälzische Eisenbahnen which were taken over on January 1, 1909). After the end of the monarchy on November 8 1918, the predicate "Royal" was removed from the name of the State Railways. Fleischmann invites all model railway fans to join the celebrations in 2019 when it will launch many special series with interesting, colourful vehicles from the large Bavarian Länderbahn era.
