GE Rail Services/Cargowaggon sliding hood wagon Sfins 83 80 474 1 001-7. This car has no fixed roof, so it can be loaded/unloaded from the top with a crane, as well as from the side with a forklift. It is built with the small British profile and can go both by ferry and channel tunnel. Gratwein-Gratkorn, 2003-11-03.

Spread-cowl wagon Sfins 83 80 474 1 042-1 of GE Capital Rail Services in the locomotive maintenance tracks of Graz Hauptbahnhof, 2005-03-13.

This wagon is able to go to Great Britain via ferry or channel tunnel, and has a rather small profile compared to the Habins and Sins cars for continental traffic. Length 20.76 m, bogie distance 19.5 m, loading area 48.7 m2, empty weight 26000 kg, minimum radius 50 m, home station Frankfurt/Main Hgbf. Technically very similar to Habfins sliding-wall cars, but no roof, so it can also be loaded from above with a crane, and is categorized as a flat wagon (S) instead of a covered wagon (H).
