Prototype History:
The Eaos gondola is a four-axle open freight wagon used by numerous European railway companies . The cars are versatile and can be used for the transport of coal, ores, stones, scrap, wood, etc. These cars were purchased from 1978 by the then German Federal Railways .

The cars were specifically created to satisfy the UIC standardization in the early 1970s. The first series was the Eaos 106. Later versions of these cars were equipped with a steel floor and known as Eaos-x 051. Any remaining Eaos 106 still in service in 2003 were rebuilt and fully refurbished, they were given the name Eaos-x 075. These upgrades were completed in 2014.

Some cars have a ground-operated handbrake. To secure cargo straps can be attached to the car, attached to the long sides eyelets. All cars have side doors, most of them have two doors on each side.
