Rhine-Neckar regulars' table wagon

  • Created by Holger Späing

This year, "Stammtisch Rhein-Neckar" has again commissioned a special edition from FR Freudenreich Feinwerktechnik. Two Gms 54 covered wagons are in agricultural service.

Once again this year, the Rhine-Neckar regulars' table (Stammtisch Rhein-Neckar) has presented itself with its own wagon pack. Produced by FR Freudenreich Feinwerktechnik in all-metal construction, it consists of two covered new-build freight wagons Gms 54 of the German Federal Railways (Item No. 49.343.02) on the theme of agriculture. Under the motto "From fertiliser to tubers", the two wagons were equipped as follows: The first one without handbrake shows a stuck-on label "Pfälzer Frühkartoffeln" with the transport destination Eberbach, the second one has a handbrake platform and carries an imprint "Kali" on a blue background.

The roof colour was not painted in RAL 9006 white aluminium according to DB colour specifications, but in two slightly different shades of light grey in order to come closer to the typical operational impression. The ventilator flaps are also painted in different shades of reddish brown and white aluminium. On one of the two wagons the note box is also in black. The edition of the regulars' table car pack 2023 is 46 copies, the remaining stock not sold via the regulars' table is offered via the 1zu220 shop while stocks last.
