The method is certainly novel, the concept isnt. They have to have some means of getting rid of the fluff and dust or it becomes a fire hazard.

The Illinois Central's Chicago-St. Louis Green Diamond streamliner was built in 1936 by Pullman-Standard, with electrical-mechanical components by Electro-Motive. It was the last articulated trainset to be built with the power unit integrated into the train; the locomotive carried number 121. In 1947 the IC's Paducah shops overhauled the train, and it then operated as the Miss Lou between Jackson, Mississippi and New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1950 it was retired and scrapped. This railroad publicity photo comes from the Gary Thompson collection.  Richard Leonard's Rail Archive.

It's strange seeing long American style rail cars on Euro rail roads.

Do you mean cargo cars on bogies? There you have some examples of those, and also of articulated cargo cars:

I believe they are a GWR design that predates WW1. I think they intended it for carrying oversize boilers, traction engines, that kind of thing. When the war started the War Department order some from the GWR. There was a subset built with mounting points so you could mount and fire an AA gun on them If I remember rightly.
