12 V version. Mechanically, this model was much superior to what Jouef did subsequently: very little greedy motor, with rotor mounted on ball bearings, brass gears, high inertia, eight wheel drive.

What I liked at the time was the inserted headlighs. What bothered me was the non-articulated pantographs (I tried to lower one by forcing), and also the absence of buffers.

Repaired in 2008: wheel contacts, motor, fixed pantographs replaced by ex-13001 mobile pantographs. The motor is weak.
