Comments

ø 8.7 wheels too small; should be 9.6 for 840 real diameter. But wheels of correct diameter could rub to the rear, and the wagon is already a little too high…

The bogies are made of soft translucent material, to be painted absolutely. Finishing not very good.

These wagons can easily be dismantled, perhaps too easily: the last one arrived exploded into parts. But this makes it easier to install cars on the lower deck.

Ref. 14114 : epoch IVb, the acronym SNCF is white. The picture shows the wagon after fitting Bachmann RP25 ø 9.6 wheels.

Modifications

  • Bachmann RP25 wheels ø 9.6 on Piko 24.4 mm axles. The smaller flanges avoid friction on the chassis.
  • Bachmann RP25 wheels ø 9.6 on Heris axles for ref. 14114.

History

Car transporters built by FRANGECO in 140 units numbered 65 87 98 70 001-4 to 140-0, put into service in 1967/1968 on “auto-couchette” trains.

Main features:

  • Capacity: ten medium-sized cars;
  • Speed limit: 150 km/h;
  • Bogies type Y30;
  • Tare: 23.5 t;
  • Max. load: 15 t.

These vans are equipped with an electric heating cable, which allows them to be incorporated at the head of a train, i.e. between the locomotive and the sleeping cars (which is not possible with the TA60), for example in the event of a direction change during the journey.
