Mainline History:

From 1952 onwards, the new diesel engine of the series VT 08.5 was used in the rapid train network of the young Bundesbahn. The three or four-part units immediately drew attention with their elegant, streamlined shape ("egg cups") and had a kitchen, dining area, writing and mail department. From 1953 onwards, the attractive looking, comfortable trains ran on all major long-distance lines, with distances of up to 1,500 km daily. From the summer of 1957 onwards, they were even allowed to drive on the newly introduced TEE-net from the onset, despite the fact that the train sets of the series VT 11.5 meant for this, were included in the delivery.

Set is in mint condition, with many figures in the carriages. With booklets. One of the carriages has a tiny scratch
Tested and functional.
