The development of the two-axle standard through-cars of the interchangeable design is closely linked to the emergence of standardization of components in the railway system as a key industry in the 1920s. The German Reichsbahn Company (DRG) had set itself the goal of having wagon components manufactured across companies according to the same specifications and conditions in order to be able to drastically reduce the cost of maintenance in its own factories later on and to make components interchangeable. Against this background, the DRG commissioned the German Waggon Factory Company (D.W.V.) to develop and supply the desired standard through carriages. The requirement for interchangeable construction meant that around 1,400 drawings for each individual carriage type were no longer necessary. Instead, there was a basic type on which the modified designs were based with around 150 of their own drawings. From 1928 onwards, several delivery series produced around 5,500 carriages of the various types BCi-28, Ci-28, CDi-29, Pwi-28, Ci-29 BCi-29, Pwi-29, Bi-29 and Ci-30 for passenger transport. The carriages met the DRG's expectations. As a result, many older state railway carriages and splinter types were taken out of service. The running characteristics of the carriages, which were not particularly satisfactory for passengers, quickly earned them the well-known nickname "Thunderboxes". The chaos of the war inevitably led to many European railway companies also having two-axle standard through carriages in their inventory. What they all had in common, however, was that the carriages were withdrawn from general maintenance stocks in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The carriages that still exist today are very popular with various heritage railways at home and abroad.
