Prototype Information

In 1914 the B.F.D. (Brig-Furka-Disentis) received 10 closed freight cars, 10 high board gondolas and 10 low board gondolas from the company Chantiers de la Buire in Lyon, all equipped with brake system and cogwheel brake for the Abt cograil system. Todays FO took over all rolling stock of the B.F.D. in 1925. Because of always tight budget at FO, many existing underframe was re-used and only the upper mount made new to cover the demand. Several freight cars were modified this way like: gravel container car, logging cars, MOW cars, tank cars, ski cars, herbizide car, snow plows, gondola with low aluminium boards, transport car for long rails, etc.
