Main track: From 1932 the Waggonfabrik Bautzen delivered two-axle trainsets for the branch lines. They were classified at the Deutsche Reichsbahn as VT 135, the trailers as VB 140 and with a maximum speed of 70 km/h they were faster than the steam locomotives on these branch lines. The trainsets were later assigned to the DB as VT 75.9. The trainsets had a four-stroke diesel engine which was usually placed under the wagon floor. The power of the Daimler engines could be increased from the original 120 hp to 135 hp. Later mounted DWK engines had a power of 180 hp. The last units of this type of trainsets were in use at the Deutsche Reichsbahn, classified as BR 186.2. They were in use until the late 1960s.
