It was built by Stadler Rail and put into service on May 3, 1996 . The meter-gauge vehicle runs on two two-axle bogies, each with a three-phase drive motor installed lengthways. The traction motors are supplied via a GTO converter. The car body is divided into two driver's cabs, two entry areas, one of which is designed as a multi-purpose room, and a passenger area with transverse seats in the shape of a compartment typical of Switzerland and a central aisle. The entrance doors are double-leaf swing doors. In terms of vehicles and brakes, the railcar complies with the Brünig and Bernese Oberlandbahn standards. This means that transfer towing and use asTow car possible. The installation of an auxiliary drive that is independent of the contact wire was dispensed with for reasons of cost.
