Prototype History:
The UIC (Union International des Chemins de fer) type Z or Eurofima coach (French: Voiture Standard Européenne (VSE) - European Standard Coach ) is a type of passenger car designed for use on international railway routes in Europe. It was commissioned by the EUROFIMA , short for Europäischen Gesellschaft zur Finanzierung von Eisenbahnmaterial (European Company for the Financing of Railroad Rolling Stock).
EUROFIMA is a supranational organization located in Basel, Switzerland. It was established in 1956 based on an international treaty signed by 25 European sovereign States so far. It fulfils a non-profit maximizing mission to support the development of rail transportation in Europe.

More than 500 Eurofima coaches have been built by various manufacturers, for the following original acquirers:
  • Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB): 25 Amoz and 75 Bmoz;
  • Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB): 100 Avmz 207 first class;
  • Ferrovie dello Stato (FS): 30 Az and 70 Bz;
  • French National Railway Corporation (SNCF): 100 A9u;
  • National Railway Company of Belgium (NMBS-SNCB): 20 A9 and 60 B11;
  • Swiss Federal Railways (SBB-CFF-FFS): 20 Am 61 85 19-90.
With a standard length of 26.4 m (86' 7-3/8"), they are qualified for 160 km/h or 200 km/h depending on the bogie arrangement. First class coaches are of type A, and Second class of type B. The cars were painted in Eurofima-C1 livery (orange with light gray stripe), except for the DB and the large majority of the SNCF, the latter being painted with the Corail livery.

SNCF sold part of its Eurofima cars to Morocco ONCF and ÖBB to Czech ČD.
In the 1990's and 2000's, new cars based on the UIC-Z specification were built for Poland (PKP), Hungary (MÁV), Romania (CFR) and Czech Republic (ČD).
