LGB Club Car for 2020 Zittau Bar Car
Must be a LGB Club member to order.
At the beginning of August, LGB unveiled the Club model 2020 at the
Historik Mobil show in Zittau. The brand new model, a claret-red bar car
Zittau narrow-gauge Railway, was presented at its former home. For many
years, the prototype could be seen hard at work on the narrow-gauge
railways around Zittau. In terms of its paint scheme and equipment, the
new Club model corresponds to the way the car looked as it ran between
Zittau, Jonsdorf and Oybin from 2006 to 2013. The bar car is based on
the KB4 970-473 standard car of the DRG built in 1930. It was modernized
by the German National Railroad (DR) at the beginning of the 1980s and
later refurbished by the Saxony-Upper Lusatia Railroad Corporation
(SOEG). The SOEG equipped it with a small kitchen, refrigerator and
tables for use as a bar car. It first operated in this new role in 1998.
The car was initially painted red/ivory before being resprayed. From
the spring of 2006, the claret-red car with the yellow lettering
“BARWAGEN” (BAR CAR) ran on the tracks around Zittau. Further details
about the new LGB Club model can be found in the next issue of Depesche.
The Club model 2020 can now be ordered if you are a LGB club member.
