Comments

Bogies Y20. The door panes are not flush. Handrails not inserted. The gangways are folding, and the buffers, whose plates are too small, are on spring.

As for a DEV car in No. 301 Celtic green livery with Corail style class cartridges, 2rd 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

Lighting with Viessmann type couplings.

History

DEV AO cars assigned to Region 2 in 1970:

Type UIC number
B10c10 U56 51 87 50-40 261-3 to 289-4
B10c10 U57 51 87 50-40 416-3 to 437-9
A4c4B5c5 U57 51 87 44-40 201-8 to 220-8

Of these numbers, the easiest to transform would be 418, 423 and 437, all of which giving 9 as a self-check digit.
