Info about the original
In 1883, the Württembergische Staatsbahn received a delivery of 10 passenger coaches from the Maschinenfabrik Esslingen 10, which had a strong Prussian appearance with their skylight roof. Originally they had 6 seats in 1st class and 28 seats in 2nd class as well as a toilet. With the ever expanding rail network in Germany, it became necessary to offer night trains as well in the future. For this purpose, sleeperettes were fitted out, which could clearly be distinguished from passenger coaches from a distance due to their livery.
