Specific Item Information: The model railway Union N gauge models of the Omm 52 cars are characterized by detailed design and printing, and the inside of the cars is also prototypically designed. Country-specific abbreviations and different addresses are also taken into account, there are versions with and without a brakeman's platform and brakeman's cab. All models have close coupling links and NEM coupling pockets. equipped with: - NEM coupling pockets - Close coupling link - Standard N couplings Due to the prototypical implementation of the steps and brakeman's platforms, derailments can occur when driving through narrow radii with short N-gauge couplings. The cars couple extremely tightly, which creates a wonderful look. The car with a brakeman's platform therefore needs at least a radius of 2 (225 mm) to drive safely. Alternatively, the optional coupling Modellbahn Union N-X00104 (brown) or N-X00105 (black) can be mounted to drive through radius 1 and closer in a reliable manner. Users of the professional coupling can use the extended professional couplings for model railway Union N-X00013 and model railway Union N-X00014. The Omm 52 was developed by the Uerdingen wagon factory together with the DB. In contrast to earlier freight wagons, the side walls and top flaps are made of outwardly curved sheet metal and hollow profiles, so that the wagons do not have side stanchions. The first cars still had a brakeman's cab made of sheet metal. Over 14,000 cars were built between 1952 and 1962. The Omm 52 was together with the Omm 37 the most common open freight car of the DB in the 1950s. Cars that were added to the EUROP fleet were given the designation E 037 until 1968. From 1979 onwards, over 5000 wagons were converted to Eo 017 to serve exclusively for transporting beet. The last wagons were retired from DB at the end of the 1990s. More than 800 cars were sold to the DR at the end of the 1970s, which discontinued them as El 5568, later El 5598. The last cars were decommissioned by the DR in 1994.

Road Name History:
Deutsche Bundesbahn was the Western Germany DB before reunification. After World War II, Germany (and the DRG) was divided into 4 zones: US, British, French and Soviet. The first three eventually combined to form the Federal Republic of Germany (the West) and the Russian zone became the German Democratic Republic (the East). German territories beyond the Oder were ceded to Poland except for the northern part of East Prussia, which was ceded to the Soviet Union in 1945.

From 1949, the new governments assumed authority for railway operations. The DRG's (or DR's) successors were named Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB, German Federal Railways) in West Germany, and Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR, German State Railways) in East Germany kept the old name to hold tracking rights in western Berlin.

Unlike the DRG, which was a corporation, both the DB and the DR were federal state institutions, directly controlled by their respective transportation ministries. Railway service between East and West was restricted; there were around five well-controlled and secure checkpoints between West and East Germany, and about the same number between East Germany and West Berlin. Four transit routes existed between West Germany and West Berlin; citizens of West Berlin and West Germany were able to use these without too much harassment by the East German authorities.

The DB started in 1968 with changing the locomotive and passenger car serial numbers to the UIC norm. In 1970 the DR followed. The DB started experimenting with the Intercity trains in a new livery (bright orange).

In 1989, the Wall fell. Train frequency rapidly increased on the existing East/West corridors; closed links which had formerly crossed the border were re-opened. On 3 October 1990, Germany was reunified; however, this was not immediately the case with the railways. Administrative and organisational problems led to the decision to completely re-organize and reconnect Germany's railways. The so-called Bahnreform (Railway Reform) came into effect on 1 January 1994, when the State railways Deutsche Bundesbahn and Deutsche Reichsbahn were formally reunited to form the current German Railway Corporation (Deutsche Bahn).
