HJ4036: 171 g; HJ4104: 165 g; 119 and 116 g after deleting the ballast (NEM: 115 to 150 g)

Ref. HJ4036: bogies Y20. The door panes are not flush. Handrails not inserted. The gangways are folding, and the buffers, whose head is too small, are on spring. Ref. HJ4104: bogies Y16. Too high of 0.5 mm.

As for a DEV car in No. 301 Celtic green livery with Corail style class cartridges, 2nd class light green strip and white doors, there may be some doubt. And yet, it’s plausible. See Le Train Archives de la DEV vol. 1, page 58-59 (fourth car behind the 9200), and the Loco-Revue forum where Pierre Barbe reports a photo in La Vie du Rail book Encyclopédie des voitures SNCF, page 603. See also Pierre Barbe’s photo opposite, but in which we don’t see the colour of the doors, which are open…

Modifications

  • Ballast deleted.
  • Ref. 4036: lighting of some compartments.
  • Ref. 4104 : chassis lowered by 0.5 mm by milling the bogie pivots. Coupling boxes shortened by 2 mm, but this is still insufficient to delete the gap between the bellows. Floor painted grey.

Series of 135 (U56) and 85 (U57) 2nd class DEV AO cars made by Brissonneau & Lotz, CIMT Lorraine and Franco-Belge from 1958 to 1960. Bogies Y16.

DEV AO assigned to Region 2 in 1970:
