Comments

The connecting rods are upside down! Coarse steps and railings. A tenon of the body broke on the first dismantling. The light passes through the cab (non-joined parts).

The coupling has no articulation, which causes derailment of the machine or of the following car in the curves! For their Junior series, Jouef have kept their philosophy of yesteryear: to do the cheapest possible, even if it does not work. If that’s how they’re going to attract young people…

Modifications

  • Uhlenbrock De Luxe decoder.
  • Position of the rods rectified.
