Comments

New 1973.

Much more compliant than the France-trains, but it’s Jouef engraving anyway… And the UIC rolls are far too low.

Moulded end handrails levelled for the purpose of replacing them with metal rods; never done… Y24 bogies lowered and refined. Hornby plastic wheels.

Modifications

  • Liliput ø 10.8 metal wheels.
  • Makette elongation drawbars.
  • Chassis separated from glazing (which will be redone)
  • In progress: interior design, steps made of nickel silver, some articulated for curve negotiation, recessed end gates, inserted window panes, tail lights, etc.

History

According to EC64, this is the series of 40 DEV 63 vans brought into service in 1965.

See article in La Vie du Rail No. 1093 of April 1967, p. 12 and 13, which deals with the construction of the first series of these vans at the CIMT Lorraine plant in Lunéville.
