Specific Item Information: The Gms 54 were the first covered design of the DB from conversions of older cars. The chassis was primarily used from the old wagons. Special production lines had been set up in the AW Fulda and Munich-Freimann for the production. Around 14,100 Gms 54s were built up until the early 1960s. The car bodies were made of synthetic resin panels (after board boarding had initially been considered), the car floor made of pine boles, the roof made of PIB or PVC plastic. 13,800 cars were redesignated to Gls 205 by 1968 and were given UIC steps and other changes. Among other things, the roofs were replaced by StCu sheet metal. At the end of 1987 the stock was still around 4000 cars, which were then gradually retired. Some cars were still used as railway service cars until the 1990s, while others were sold to construction companies by the DB. The model railway Union gauge N models of the Gms 54 cars are characterized by detailed design and printing. Country-specific abbreviations and different addresses are also taken into account, there are versions with and without a brakeman's platform. All models have short coupling links and NEM coupler pockets. Each company number appears in an edition of 200 copies. The LüP is 6.9 cm per car.
