length up to and including rubber buffers
Explanation:
'Puffer' is a buffer when referring to trains.. 'uber' here means including - you could just sat " length, including rubber buffers", but since buffers are normally at one end of a train sompartment "up to and including" or 2encompassing" would sound more descriptive.
