German term or phrase: Ro(o)s, Sps: 58fm, Snps:65fm
Es geht um Holz. fm ist Festmeter....


The whole sentence reads:

Frei Waggon Lieferung: Mindestausladung Ea(s): 45fm, Ro(o)s, Sps: 58fm, Snps:65fm Ro(o)s, Sps: 58fm, Snps:65fm

Mit diesen Abkürzungen kann ich momentan leider nichts anfangen, außer es handelt sich vielleich um Abkürzungen von Speditionen...

English translation:Railway wagon types
Explanation:
I've done enough translations on railway wagons to be sure of my ground here; Ken is almost right, except that they are all standard European abbreviations. They are flat wagons of one sort or another, either with stanchions or drop-sides, either with two axles or four, but you need not translate them - just add a note if you want to that they ARE railway wagons.

Have a look here: you may not find it nearly as interesting as I do...:

Reference information:
Apparently Austrian railway abbreviations; see e.g.:

Good luck with discovering the meanings. It's hard to say who's worse when it comes to abbreviations: the German(speaking) military, the railways, or the telephone company.
