Looking for WW2 German Standard Halocaust Car Drawings

Looking for WW2 German Standard Halocaust Car Drawings

I am looking for prototype drawings and information of the standard German Railway cars used during WW2. Specifically I am looking for 3 cars.
1) Standard Box cars used for ferrying Halocaust victims
2) Standard gondola (not sure if there was one but assume there was)
3) Information on the passenger car that WW1 surrender was signed in

Picture search,

http://search.comcast.net/?cat=image..._SearchSubmit=

I could not find any "drawings".
Though I found a lot of pictures of them, you need drawings?
Search for them with Google if you need pictures, drawings? I don't know.
I got tired of viewing all the death so I stopped looking.

The only picture of the Passenger car I can dig up.


Adolf Hitler entering railroad car (used for Germany's surrender in WWI) for the French/German armistice negotiations, June 21, 1940. Photo by Hugo Jaeger for LIFE.

There is not much info on the car itself.

My Great-aunt was in Auschwitz for 7 months for hiding Jews and 2 of my Grandfather's cousins were on Hitler's housekeeping staff.

I keep this car in my aunt's memory...

What is that HO?
Did you make that?
It looks just like the picture I posted all it needs is some weathering to make it look old and battered.

If you are in the Washington DC area, the National Holocaust Museum has one on display. I think it was just a standard German Boxcar of the period.

I visited Dachau when I was in Munich on business, hard to believe people were doing that to each other!

I checked the stuff I have from that visit, no train pictures.

Yes, it is a Fleischmann HO model. My little girl wanted so badly to get daddy a train car for Father's Day. We lived out in the boonies at the time but I told my wife that I saw this and one other European car at the local flea market. She was tickled to be able to get two cars for daddy... It's been a treasured piece since, especially because of its similarity to the typical transport car from that time.
