In 1952, Deutsche Bahn presented the first battery-powered wagons of the post-war era. The ETA 176 series of electric cars were the predecessors of the ETA 150 series at the German Federal Railroad. These should be applicable both in local traffic and as complete express trains. To this end, DB 8 used control units with the design designation ESA 176. Because of their most important stationing in Limburg (Lahn) and the new look, they got the nickname " Limburger Zigarre" , After more than 30 years of operation, the last traction cars were sampled in 1984.
