The VT 137 "Stettin" remaining in the Deutsche Reichsbahn were found in the Greifswald and Schwerin RBD after the war ended, and later the SD returned their M 262 101. VT 137 329, 331, 367, 368 and 371 were put back into service. The others were disassembled after years of storage, some not until the 60s. Initially, the railcars were even used in the rapid rail system, as Halle and Berlin-Karlshorst were the home stations at this time. In 1960, all 5 railcars were brought together in Leipzig. The Deutsche Reichsbahn returned to the traditional two-colour paint in red/ivory. After disassembly of the machine drive system, 4 pieces were used as trailer cars from 1964 onwards with the numbers VB 147 551 - 554. Having been modified in this way, they were now especially used behind BR 101-106 diesel locomotives. Classic application routes were the branch lines of Altmark and Mark Brandenburg. They were all renumbered in 197 840 to 843. After the withdrawal from service, many were still used for stationary tasks, such as a classroom and youth club in Gusten. The former VT 137 367 survived and was converted into VB 147 551 a/b from 1962 to 1964. After its with-drawal from service in 1974, it served in Aschersleben as the housing for a model railway system, and it is currently preserved by ECA Aschersleben's successor organization as VB.
