Jack-of-All-Trades G 10
In the first decades of the DB, mixed freight trains without them were inconceivable: the type G 10 freight cars. Their origin extends back to the Prussian State Railways and with over 120,000 units built, they are the most important and by far the most often purchased of all boxcars. Almost everything could be transported in them and they were thus even suited for transporting livestock. In this case, this honor is claimed by a G 10 with end field reinforcement and without a brakeman's cab.
