I am impressed by the items "H0 Containerwagen Danzas/DHL Wechselstr." and
"H0 Containerwagen Danzas/DHL Gleichstrom", as I have been after a DANZAS
container for some time (wife worked for them).
Some questions:
Why do they cost so much (31.90 euros)?
Why is there an AC and DC version of an unpowered freight vehicle?
The couplings look foreign to me - are they easily replaced with RTR
couplers we are used to?

a). Because everybody wants their cut. b). Because Maerklin have to charge extra to ensure they keep their 'quality image'.
It realkly means 2-rail (DC) or 3-rail (AC) the 2-rail ones must have insulated axles, for 3-rail non-insulated axles are preferred since they operate the track circuits.
They are foreign! They probably have NEM coupler sockets and if so then you can easily change the couplings, if they don't it will be a bit harder. But why change them, othe H0 scale vehicles will be compatible.
