About the “Reko” wagons:
“Reko” wagons are railway wagons made of remains of railway wagons from the pre-war period. Due to a shortage of materials, the Deutsche Reichsbahn of the GDR was forced to reuse parts of the old wagons. With reconstruction (short “Reko” in German) wasn’t meant restoration or reproduction of an earlier state, but a thorough modernization.
There are “Reko” wagons with 2, 3 and 4 axles and were used for goods transport and like here for postal and passenger transport purpose.
The train cars represent a 3-axle variant of these “Reko” wagons a post wagon and a passenger coach from the early 1960’s. Due to the total length of the wagons, the front and rear axle are steerable, so passing curves and turnouts is not an issue. Additionally, the middle axle is flexible as well and will move to the right or left side in curves and turnouts.
The interior is implied only, to give the steering mechanism enough space (function before design approach).
