Prototype: From 1998 to 2000, the Zwickau and Leipzig-Engelsdorf plants converted almost all of the remaining Hbils/Hbis-ww 297 and 500 of the Hbils/Hbis-ww 299 into container wagons.
The underframe of these 1,722 Lgs 580s were reinforced (particularly the long beams) and prepared for the installation of the Z-AK. They also received a new steel floor, cable anchor brackets and 16 hinged container pins for one or two ISO containers of 20, 30 or 40 feet.
In the cars created from the Hbis 299, the braking systems were also supplemented with automatic load changes, and in some cases also with parking brakes. The cars are still almost completely in stock today.
