It could be that Austria (or the k.u.k. predecessors) had this practice.
Or, I fell for a false friend, and the Austrian "Schleuderwagen" is just a car uncoupled at a stop.
The Schleuderwagen is an addition to an otherwise fix trainset. This could have been some Schlieren coaches behind a 4010 in peak times.

In Siwtzerland the term was also used for any addition to a push-pull-consist (Pendelzug) not integrated in the push-pull concept. Schleuderwagens were largely replaced by "modules" which means some coaches plus a driving trailer, allowing to integrate the additional coaches into the push-pull-consist.
