Comments

See advertisement in Loco Revue No. 348 of March 1974, page 115.

Roof shape not very successful! Incorrect door position (probably so that the steps do not interfere with the bogies). The junction body-roof is wrong, the colour hesitates between olive green and khaki. It is probably the worst production of France-Trains.

At the time, I was very disappointed: I still thought that price implied quality! Naive!

The roof is a part of the windows.

History
