Although the SBB had taken over large  numbers of the American four-axle coaches  and the coaches had proven their worth  in service, when ordering new vehicles it  was decided to use a three-axle design.  After some time, the long coach body  showed a high level of warping and  deformation.  The reason for this was the  very poor running properties of the  primitive  bogies without secondary  suspension.  Nevertheless, some remained  in service until 1941 and trains formed  solely with four-axle coaches of the same  class still travelled between Winterthur  and Wil in 1930.
