Cars are very lightweight, but bulky. Finding suitable ways of hauling large numbers of cars has been difficult. A continental design used just 3 axles, articulating two bodies together. After a prototype of 1979, another 55 double units were introduced. Later some were renumbered for use to the continent (see http://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/stvamatautic ) Damage to cars during transit resulted in modifications to have side screens and roofs.
