After the merger of the German Länderbahnen to the German Reichsbahn Gesellschaft in the 1920s, the large variety of passenger coach types became almost unmanageable. This led to the development of new standard passenger coaches. Although the heavy all-steel version of the two-axle corridor coach offered more safety and comfort for the travelers, it sometimes made for quite a rumbling noise whilst travelling; this gave rise to the nickname "Donnerbüchsen" (thunder boxes).
