Prototype: Krupp had blast furnaces in Bochum and blast furnaces in Duisburg-Rheinhausen. To be able to roll the slabs from Rheinhausen directly in Bochum, the slabs were transported glowing. For this purpose existing heavy goods vehicles were equipped with a thermal hood. This would save Bochum time and energy for re-heating the slabs. The trains consisted of 2-6 cars, often with an additional torpedo pot. The cars did not run in normal freight trains and were mostly pulled by steam locomotives BR 044.
