Comments

Epoch IVb (HJ615) (registration after 1980) et IVa (HJ6149). The latter is registered Uas?

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

Fine engraving. Spring buffers. Generally finer than its flat sided colleague (example: ladder). The height is too low of 1 mm, which would not be too troublesome if that of the flat-sided wagons was not too high of 0.8 mm, which gives a very visible offset when the two types are coupled together.

Modifications

  • HJ6115 : wheels and buffers painted. Rust weathering on top of the wagon, by means of the Tamiya weathering kit.
  • HJ6149 : wheels and buffers painted. Hooks weathered.
  • Wagons raised by 0.5 mm by adding a spacer between the pivot piece and the bogie frame. 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.
