OSShD-Y Train Carriages


The OSShD-Y is one of the most widely used and well known train carriages/coaches in Eastern Europe. It is also used by a number of other rail operators in various countries around the world such as the Chemins de Fer Syriens national railway operator in Syria.

The OSShD (type "B" OSShD-B) class carriage was first introduced by the GDR (East German) railway operatorDeutsche Reichsbahn in 1962 and used Görlitz V bogies. Later in 1968 the OSShd-B was enhanced to meet UIC standard. The enhanced OSShD became known as the OSShD-Y (type "Y") carriage. The most distinctive feature of the OSShD-Y is its arched top, rather than the curved top on the previous type-B models.

The new OSShD-Y carriage model was produced by Waggonbau Bautzen (VEB Waggonbau Görlitz) in the GDR (East Germany) and was supplied to all OSShD members, forming the back bone of many members' stock, such as Czechoslovakia’s.

Over time other factories such as MVG Györ, Vagónka Studénka, Goša and Siemens acquired licences to
produce the OSShD-Y carriage, in some cases using different bogies.

content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please
visit our FAQ.
