For the use of freight wagons in traffic to Great Britain, freight wagons were required that corresponded to the smaller British clearance gauge and, in addition to the well-known air brake, had the suction air brake system common in Great Britain. For this purpose, the DRG procured, after covered wagons and stake wagons with hand brakes, from 1935 50 refrigerated cars in two lots, but without handbrake. The wagons had ice bins that were filled through the overhead doors. They were hired as Gfkhs Saarbrücken, later they were given the designation Tbnhs Berlin. Many survived the Second World War, around 20 came to the DB in 1950, some cars also to the DR. The DB rented around half of the Tbnhs to Transthermos, the rest were given the designation Tbnhs 30. 19 cars were still designated as UIC in 1964 -compliant type designation Icfrs 400 (epoch IV) intended, but most of them were taken out of service by 1969, as the railroad was too slow compared to the competition on the road, especially in refrigerated transport.
The Modellbahn Union gauge N models of the Tbnhs wagons in the scale 1: 160 are characterized by detailed design and printing. Different addresses as well as different paint conditions based on the usage time are also taken into account. All models have a close coupling link and NEM coupling pockets. The length overhang is 7.3 cm per car.
