In order to use freight wagons in traffic to Great Britain wagons were needed that corresponded to the smaller british loading gauge, and in addition where capable of working with the UK braking system.
The DB therefore acquired the new Gbtmks 66 (later Tcefs 845) in 1964. The wagons were built by company Gebr. Credé in Kassel. The wagons were usable for through ferry traffic and therefore avoided extensive re-loading at the ferry ports. The wagons had a length of 12,5m with a loading with of only 2,3m. Back in 1964 the wagons where already lettered corresponding to the rules of the upcoming Epoch IV.
