Carriage 102 TWE (G10)

Covered goods wagon - verband-type

 
 

As a result of the goods wagon standardisation driven forward by the Staatsbahnwagonverband, the so-called ‘Verband-type’ came into being in 1910.  From the outside the wagons resembled those of the Länder railways but were much more strongly built.  As a result, their load capacity was raised from 15.75t to 17.5t.  Owing to its exchange of traffic with the state railway, the Teutoburger Wald Eisenbahn was obliged to provide and procure a number of goods wagons of this type, and did so in 1913. Most were lost without trace in the upheavals of 2 world-wars. Nevertheless 102 TWE survived on its home line and served, first under the number G 502 and later G 124 (II), to carry breakdown equipment for the TWE’s workshops in Lengerich-Hohne.  After being taken out of service in 2001 we took over the vehicle for storage.  Ideas for the future are for it to serve as a bicycle-carrier in the 'Teuto-Express'.
