Passenger & freight cars
Various existing models can be used for ZBH and ZRS freight cars - Gbs, Eas, Es, 2 and 4 axle tank cars, Rs, etc. For passenger cars, ZRS has some ex-DR cars that Tillig produces (Y and end-door Halberstadters) that just need to be relettered for ZRS. Both companies operate Yugoslav-built versions of the Y coaches, which are similar to the model, but have a different roof profile. These could, however, be kitbashed. Also, ZFBH has Blm-type cars that could be modelled with Tillig's Eurofima cars.

Some pictures:

ZRS 212-020 (my photo)

Image
ZBH 211-262

Image
ZBH 232-066 (my photo). These were used only very briefly around 1999-2000. By the time of my visit in July 2000, they had been stored at Rajlovac shops, and later ended up sold to Czechia.

ZRS Dms, ex-DR (my photo). This is shorter than a Y car... I think it's a Reko.

ZFBH Blm - could be modelled using TT-Modell's Eurofima coach.

ZFBH Al - Yugoslav version of the Y-wagon; note the profile of the roof at the ends.

Added some freight car photos.

The railways of Bosnia are one of my particular interests, so if anyone has any questions, shoot. :)

It's not a "Reko" car, but very close. Like the first "Rekos", they were chassis of pre-war cars with new car bodies. But in contrast to "Rekos", they were longer (21.25 m instead of 18.7 m) and were intended to serve on large distance trains.
As far as I know, modells of them are made by Tillig (but I'm not sure).

Thanks for the clarification. I was rather surprised to see this at the station in Banja Luka when I was there in 1999, I was aware that some cars were donated to ZRS but I only knew of the "Y" cars...

I've found some time to search for them. And I was right. Tillig makes the DR version of this car (#95633).
