This boxcar was purchased in the early Forties and was used for a long time on the narrow gauge lines of the ÖBB. Some of the units were rebuilt, and brakeman's cabs were removed on them and replaced by brakeman's platforms. Several cars were used for bicycle transport. They were easily recognized from a distance by the blue paint scheme and the large bicycle symbol. Several of these cars still exist today. The prototype of our LGB museum car on the Pinzgau Local Railroad - which runs between Zell am See and Krimml - is painted and lettered exactly like the museum car and refers to the 125th anniversary of this railroad.

This is a model of a 4-axle boxcar painted and lettered for this year's partner, the Pinzgau Local Railroad in Austria. The paint scheme and lettering go with Era VI. There is a brakeman's platform at one end of the car, and the sliding doors on the sides can be opened. The trucks are correct for this car type. The car has metal wheelsets.
