This set harkens back to the great period of "Von Haus zu Haus" / "From Door to Door" service by rail and road and from customer to customer with large containers in the Fifties and Sixties. All types of liquid or solid freight could be transported in these newly built, standardized "pa" large containers (pa = porteur aménager). Open and closed containers for all kinds of freight were available, and there were special containers for liquids, foodstuffs, and frozen goods. Initially, the frames of prewar type G 10 cars damaged in the war were used for the transport cars because they were available in abundance. These rebuilt cars were designated as the type BT 10.
