The body was completely rebuilt with double walls with intermediate cork insulation. Metal frame and walls in oak and fir strips for the exterior and walls in fir strips for the interior partition.
Installation of a double door and seals on each side. In order to be incorporated into Express passenger trains or mixed freight-passenger trains, they were equipped with a steam pipe.
