First year of delivery or year of construction of the oldest wagons at this time
Type Sps 466 evolved from type 252 service wagons. Wagons with different exDR document numbers were grouped together under this type. Wagons with the document number 7903 were created from type Res 676.
The wagons are primarily used for transporting sleepers according to the SUM conversion method and are equipped with gantry crane rails of track gauge 2,806 mm and drive-over rails. With gantry crane operation, the smallest negotiable curve radius is 190 m.
To transport sleepers, the wagons are equipped with loading frames, the dimensions of which are adapted to the gantry cranes used. From 2017 onwards, the loading frames were converted to a loading length of 18.3 m for transporting 180 sleepers. The wagons are equipped with 12 belt winches and hooks for securing the load.
