History: Wine barrel cars are freight cars with wooden wine barrels installed on them. They can be referred to as foudre, from the French term for these large wine barrels. A two-barrel car was designated as bi-foudre.

This special type of tank wagon was set up by private wine merchants from several continental European countries. Most of these cars were built in the first quarter of the 20th century. Due to regular thefts and high repair costs, they were later manufactured in a closed construction, partly with roof domes. From the 1960s, they were replaced by tank cars.
