Comments

Some parts are missing: side window deflector, isolator, door handle. The wipers are way too thick. That said, it is a very beautiful model that I cannot criticize in detail, because I don’t know enough this machine.

For information, reference of the sound decoder: ESU 55423.

Modifications

History

Tricurrent locomotives (25 kV 50 Hz, 1500 V and 3000 V DC) built in five units, ordered in 1962 to tow the international trains on the TEE line Paris - Brussels - Amsterdam (source: wikipedia). Construction by Ateliers de Construction Electrique de Charleroi (ACEC) for the electrical part and La Brugeoise et Nivelles for the mechanical part.
