German Commuter Service by classictrains German Commuter Service by classictrains
So you thought Push-Pull commuter service was an American thing? Not at all.

Posted in honor of Hoyt's :iconherrdrayer: imminent return to Europe.

Some details courtesy of :iconzcochrane:

This cab car is known as BDnf 738 or BDnrzf 739. The BDnrzf 739 ones and 29 of the BDnf 738 had their cab removed completely, with practically all of the others converted to either the "Karlsruhe head" [link] or, later, to the newer "Wittenberge head" [link] (named after the towns where the cars were converted). There were a total of 269 cab cars with doors at the end. Because some cars that never had a cab were also rebuilt to cab cars with newer heads, there are a total of 381 cab cars without such doors built, though I don't know how many of them are still in service.

I probably didn't express myself very well Hoyt... the point I was really trying to make is how Americans tend to think of US trains as special or unique when in many ways the opposite is true... and has been for a long time.

You're absolutely right about that! I just used your previous comment as a chance to plug a couple of my own pictures...(^_^)
