4-piece set: TEE 20 “Saphir”, DB

The set consists of two 1st class compartment coaches type Avümz 111, one 1st class open seating coach type Apümz 121 and one dining coach type WRümh 132.

■ Saloon coach with two wardrobe windows and two sign boxes on each side of the coach
■ Compartment coaches with two sign boxes on each side of the coach, one coach with radio aerial for train mail radio
■ DB's only "Pop dining coach" WRümh 132, for the first time with correct window arrangement and lettering
■ Authentic reproduction of the last journey of the Pop-WRümh in the TEE 20 Saphir on 10th January 1974 between Nuremberg and Brussels
■ Finely detailed bogies

When the DB introduced a new colour scheme for its coaches in 1970 with the “Pop colours”, a single new WRümh 132 type dining coach was also repainted accordingly in pebble grey/purple red. It was first used in the blue F trains, later in various TEE and IC trains such as the TEE “Saphir” to Brussels. However, 10th January 1974 was the fateful day for this colourful loner when it was irreparably damaged in a shunting accident in Brussels.
