History

This is a European standard of 71.3 m3 built in 1976/77, registered (before 1980) 31 87 532 7000 to 8 849 E8.01. After 1980: 11 87 534 1 000 to 2 299 E80.1.

The main differences with the French standard are the increase in the bogie pivot centre distance, from 8.5 m to 9 m, and the decrease in the body height, from 3.335 m to 3.25 m.
