Due to the great lack of travel waggons and express train waggons following World War 2 and the generally poor condition of the vehicle fleet, a conversion campaign for four-axle waggons was announced as early as the presentation of the three-axle conversion waggons. In terms of design, the development of the 4yg waggons was very closely linked to the 3yg waggons which lead to the assumption of numerous components. Therefore, the similarity of both wagon types is unmistakable. However, the 4yg waggons were given a central entrance that had already proven itself with the new 26.4 m city express train waggons and lead to a symmetrical distribution. The majority of donator waggons were Prussian-type 4-axle compartment waggons. The vehicle frames of the donator waggons were all brought to a uniform length of 19,460 mm and then firmly attached to the new steel construction. The first trial waggons were delivered in 1955 by Aw Hannover [Hanover Railway Workshop]. In the subsequent years up to the start of the 1960s, over 1800 waggons of the three main categories, AB4yg, B4yg and BPw4yg, were manufactured. Refurbished standard Prussian design bogies as well as swan-neck bogies were used for the waggons manufactured up to 1958. After 1958, the newly-developed light Minden-Deutz bogies were installed. In order to ensure independent utilisation with all three types of traction, all waggons were equipped with both steam and electric heating. Due to the late delivery of the AB4yg, it was not possible to create trains of a single type from the start. For this reason, A or AB prewar express train waggons were usually deployed in trains made up of B4yg waggons until 1958. In doing so, the waggons were distributed across the whole of Germany. However, the actual plan of withdrawing all waggons from service by 1.1.1990 did not come to fruition as reunification caused an increase in the demand for waggons. As a result, some waggons even made it as far as Berlin. The last 4yg waggons were finally withdrawn from the Deutsche Bahn fleet on 28.2.1994.
