The nearest matches are the 7800 coaches, but they
are much longer. Also the donnerbusche series are
very similar and even have baggage cars. All of these
are longer. A common solution is to cut 8700 cars
to shorten them. The 4107 are saxon landerbahn
cars that found their way to the drg and later to db.
The 8700 are wurttemberger cars that are essentially
longer versions of the same style.
Afaik the short baggage car was released in a small
series with sbb markings by a swiss firm some time
ago but all short passanger cars I've seen are home
These are the ones I made a few years ago:
(the last one is an unmodified car)
(the locomotive, the bagge car and the freight car are unmodified marklins)

Wouldn't these be ideal in Z? (Or just to apt to jump the tracks)?
