The train also carried guests; the post reporting this as a unique
event for a Schalke Gmf4/4ii.
I would turn it the other way round. It was an exceptional transport, with a few persons involved in the project, allowed to travel with it.

The Schalke Gmf can't provide heating power, so it's not something you would do in Winter. 491 travelled with open front doors, because two vacuum pipes had be laid through the motor coach. 491 was fitted with an air brake (4 bar) and has no vacuum lines.
