    Model: Handcrafted precision model made of brass with original screw couplings, interchangeable with KM1 double-hook couplings or claw couplings. Spring buffers, kinematic close-coupling with sliding guide for prototypically close-coupled operation, ball-bearing and sprung axles, detailed interior, complete detailing of the undercarriage and brake system, switchable interior lighting including function decoder with power buffer for flicker-free operation, opening doors, movable and coupling bellows (on radii greater than 2300mm), prototypically profiled wheels on both sides. Length over buffers approximately 73.4 cm, weight approximately 3 kg, minimum radius 1020 mm. This carriage is an ideal addition to all 4-axle passenger cars, especially to our D 36 and D 28 express cars.

    Prototype: For the then-new long-distance express train network of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, MITROPA commissioned a total of 75 riveted dining cars WR4üe-28 from 1928 to 1930, built at the Linke-Hofmann-Werke in Breslau, the Vereinigte Westdeutsche Waggonfabriken (Westwaggon) in Cologne-Deutz, the Waggon- und Maschinenbau AG (WUMAG) in Görlitz, and Wegmann in Kassel. In 1934/35, twelve cars of the same dimensions followed, but now in welded construction. The cars of the first delivery series ran on Görlitz II heavy bogies; the kitchen equipment was designed in line with the then-new Rheingold dining cars. In the early post-war years, the cars in West Germany were exclusively used by the occupying powers in military trains. Only in 1949 did these powers hand over the 28 remaining cars to the newly founded Deutsche Schlafwagen- und Speisewagen-Gesellschaft (DSG), which deployed them in high-quality trains of the DB, including in the newly created F-train network in 1951. Until 1967, they, together with welded dining car types of the former MITROPA, formed the backbone of the DSG dining car fleet. Almost all of them were renumbered according to UIC designation WRü[e] 151 and UIC numbers and were retired between 1968 and 1973.
