THE PROTOTYPES OF THE EUROPEAN STANDARD PASSENGER COACH

DIE PROTOTYPEN DES EUROPAISCHEN STANDARD-REISENZUGWAGENS

After thorough study by UIC committees and working groups, a specification was drawn up for the development of a European standard passenger coach, after which a consortium of manufacturers led by Linke-Hofmann-Busch produced ten prototypes. The Author describes these vehicles, including bodywork construction, draw and buffing gear, bogies, brakes, entrances, the intercommunicating gangways, and windows, also thermal and sound insulation, energy supplies for air conditioning and lighting. Space is also devoted to the interior furnishings and the various external colour schemes of the passenger rolling stock which will in future populate Europe's railways.
