The advancement of passenger transport motorisation after the Second World War led to the development and production of series M 262.0 railcars.

The advancement of passenger transport motorisation after the Second World War led to the development and production of series M 262.0 railcars. This railcar is a lightweight vehicle with electric power transmission, and was jointly developed and manufactured by the companies Královopolská (cabin), Tatra Smíchov (bogies) and ČKD Praha (internal combustion engine and electrical equipment). The driving bogie is equipped with two nose-suspended electric traction motors, while the conventional bogie has a V-12 diesel engine on a separate frame flexibly coupled with a traction dynamo.  The wheelsets in the frame of the bogie are held by a pair of swinging arms suspended by horizontal springs. The cabin consists of two passenger compartments (56 + 24 seats), entry areas and a luggage compartment. A total of 250 units were produced for Czechoslovak State Railways (ČSD) in three series between 1949 and 1960. 

These railcars were used for all kinds of passenger transport, from long-distance diesel fast trains to regional and mixed trains. Trailer carriages were first used by the Bam (formerly Calm) series, and from 1958 also Balm and BFalm. In the 1980s, the designation was changed to 830 and the railcars were retrofitted with a different internal combustion engine, after which the designation was changed to 831.
