New in 1959 (Shell) and 1970 (Elf).
Three units, one of which was recently given to me by a friend, in original version with Jouef couplers and plastic wheels.
The Elf wagon, although more detailed (representation of the rivets), had a big defect of moulding: the two half-tanks were shifted. I had to sand and repaint the ends to hide this horror.
Bogie pivots reinforced; Bachmann RP25 ø 9,6 NMRA wheels; openwork bogies.
USA Transportation Corps introduced in Europe in 1944.
