Piko 37840 DR Pwg88 Baggage coach with opening doors interior detail and moveable tail light covers.

The Deutsche Reichsbahn ordered 240 baggage coaches from the VEB Bautzen Railcar Works. The coaches were built between 1956 to 1959 and used by the DR thoughout it's network. DR specified that they be painted bottle green. The new baggage coaches (Packwagen or Pwg) were built of steel and could run at speeds of up to 56mph. They featured a 93sq.ft. Baggage area and could transport up to 5 tons. They were later turned out in a chrome oxide paint scheme. In a few cases the coaches were in use until the 1990s.
