In the years 1908 and 1911, several different quick-train coaches were ordered for the 1st/2nd class, 1st/2nd/3rd Class and 3rd class, as well as vans for the growing long-distance transport with
guides and one by the Bavarian State Railway.
The four-axle rapid-carriages of the Royal Bavarian State Railways drove in the periods I to IV. They were in use from the national Railway Time via DRG (group Management Bavaria) to the DB time. At the beginning they were used for inner Bavarian express trains to Würzburg, Nuremberg, Lindau, or Regensburg, but also in the main trains to Berlin, Frankfurt or Stuttgart.
At the time of the national railway and in the beginnings of the Reichsbahn period, these car types also drove in the long-distance Express FD 79/80 München-Berlin-Munich. The FD 79/80 has been equipped with up to four AB4üBay08 and one to two van Pw4üBay09. In other trains, the ABC4üBay11 and later C4üBay11 were also hired.
These three car types had 3.5-m bogies of the Bavarian design and an iron frame on which a verblechter wooden construction was set up. The interior of the AB4üBay08 consisted, for example, of two
1.0-class parts with eight seats and five 2.0-class dividers with 27 seats and two toilets at the end of the car. Length over buffer was 19 725 mm, the car box 18 425 mm long and the pivot
distance 13 200 mm.
The country railway wagons were equipped with a light. They could be braked with both aspirated air and compressed air. In the Reichsbahn period, the gas lighting was replaced by an electric lighting, so that the gas container was removed under the car and replaced by batteries and control box. Other remodeling measures that have been carried out are the removal of emergency steps and ladders as well as the redesign of the WCS. The elaborate painting with ornamental strips was also replaced by a simple oxidgrüne painting.
