Regional Coaches Bnrz

The Deutsche Bahn n-type coach fleet consisted of 5,000 passenger coaches.3,100 of the 5,000 coaches were second-class coaches (Bn, Bnr, Bnrz). Around 1,000 of these coaches have disk brakes ("r") and stationary battery chargers ("z").

Bnrz coaches typically have 96 second class seats and 4 folding seats.

A characteristic feature of the Bnrz coach is that especially advantageous values can be achieved for the following technical characteristics:

  • Good life cycle cost (LCC) values per km per coach.
  • Low empty weight per seat.
  • High number of seats per coach while still having generous room even for larger passengers.

Bnrz coaches are typically operated together with Bnrdz coaches with multipurpose area, ABnrz coaches with first class, and Bnrdzf driving trailers.

Bnrz coaches can be operated together with diesel locomotives, such as the BR218, or with electric locomotives.

HEROS offers the Bnrz coaches for sale and lease.
