Comments

Set of three cars. No red lights. No elongation draw bars nor NEM boxes (contrary to the catalogue announcement). Specific snap-on couplings. Wheels ø 8.2 too small, but with 1.3 mm flanges, huge!

Two complementary cars. One could be re-numbered 50 87 22-07 043-2 1

See the Loco-Revue Forum.

History

The RIB70 program (1969) first series consists of 73 bodies: 18 ZRBx, 37 ZRBz, 18 ZRABd.

The trains usually consist of four cars and usually run in double units (thus eight cars). This is an Est Region train (slight differences compared to the Nord Region trains: position of the 1st class compartment, etc.)
