Specific Item Information: 3rd running number of the series: 435080 In 1954, the Bundesbahn ordered from the company Fuchs from Heidelberg 25 Rbmms 55 ferry spine wagons. These were built according to UIC guidelines and delivered in 1956. On the long sides of the car stanchions were obtained from pressed sheet, the front sides were equipped with stanchions made of section steel. The side walls were hinged. 1962 ordered the DB 30 more cars at LHB as a replacement for remaining Rbh 21 cars, another order for 100 cars was 1963-1965. The total stock was thus 155 copies. As part of the redrawing the cars were renamed to Lfs-t 569 until 1968, then in Lfms-t 569 in the early 1980s. The stock was complete until 1984. From the mid-1980s, the cars came mainly in the construction service for the transport of sleepers used. The last Lfms-t 569 went out of service in 1995. The Modellbahn Union models of the Rbmms 55 cars in the scale 1:160 are characterized by detailed design and printing. The stanchions are removable, there are stanchions with and without DB embossing and empty stanchion holder for optional installation enclosed. Different addresses as well as different painting conditions based on the working time are also considered. All models have a close coupling mechanism and NEM coupler pockets. The cars are long and short N Gauge standard couplings included. The models are equipped with finescale-wheelsets, standard wheelsets are optional available under the item number MU_N-X00001. The length is 7.8 cm per car, the loading width is 1.2 cm.

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).
