Comments

Epoch IVb for HJ615 (registration after 1980) and IVa for HJ6131 and HJ6149. These are registered Uas?

Wheels ø 10.3 (for 10.6 real), axles 25.3 between ends.

Fine engraving, except the much too thick ladder. Spring buffers. The height is too high of 0.8 mm, which would not be too troublesome if that of the curved side wagons was not too low of 1 mm, which gives a very visible offset when both types are coupled together.

HJ6131 : a roof handrail is bent due to a misplaced fixing hole.

The trapdoor cranks are too bulky and are out of gauge (39 mm instead of 36.2 to scale).

See:

Modifications

  • HJ6115 : wheels, buffers, handrails painted. Ladder thinned.
  • HJ6131 : trapdoor cranks shortened.
  • HJ6149 : trapdoor cranks shortened. Installation of end lights controlled by bistable reed switch. Axles and buffers painted. Hooks and cranks weathered.
  • Wagons lowered by 0.5 mm by milling the bogie pivot piece. 3-point suspension created (originally, there are four bearing points, at the level of the bogie assembly screws, which allows no movement of a bogie relative to the other).

History

Wagons built around 1974 by Fauvet-Girel. Capacity : 94 m3. Tare : about 20.6 t. Bogies Y25 CS2.
