The Gms 54 were the first covered design of the DB from conversions of older cars. The chassis was primarily used from the old wagons. Special production lines had been set up in the AW Fulda and Munich-Freimann for the production. Around 14,100 Gms 54s were built up until the early 1960s. The car bodies were made of synthetic resin panels (after board boarding had initially been considered), the car floor of pine boles, the roof of PIB or PVC plastic. 13,800 cars were renumbered to Gls 205 by 1968 and received UIC kicks and other changes. Among other things, the roofs were replaced by StCu sheet metal. At the end of 1987 the stock was still around 4000 cars, which were then gradually retired. Some cars were still used as railway service cars until the 1990s, while others were sold to construction companies by the DB.
Over the years, the range has been expanded to include model making items such as aircraft and military model construction as well as model railways from other countries.
