Info about the original
In order to replace the local train and make secondary lines more attractive, Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB) introduced the new City-Bahn train category at the timetable change on September 30, 1984. According to the motto „City-Bahn – Without traffic jams at hourly intervals“, a dense interval timetable was introduced and existing n-carriages were modernized for this purpose.
The Cologne-Overath-Gummersbach-Meinerzhagen line, which was in danger of being decommissioned, was the first line to be equipped with this service. 25 n-carriages, seven of them control cars, were given a modern interior and painted orange/pebble gray, similar to the Rhein-Ruhr S-Bahn. A café was added to the sets.
