This standard covers: .all new vehicle designs of the passenger coach type of construction (day coaches, restaurant cars, sleeper coaches, driving trailers, baggage cars, etc.); .all new constructions of existing vehicle types; .other vehicles (e.g. motorail vehicles) that may also be included in passenger trains; .all major overhauls of the above-mentioned vehicles if they involve redesigning or extensive alteration to the brake system of the vehicle concerned. The vehicles meet the following technical criteria: .inclusion in trains in accordance with EN 14198 in regular railway operation is possible (coupling capacity); .the maximum speed is between 100 km/h and 200 km/h; .the lower vehicle limitations of UIC 505-1 (WIs 00256150/151/152) are adhered to.
