87 g (NEM: 66 to86 g).
Probably a German wagon more or less Frenchified (buffers for example are not French type). The engraving is not very fine — see the steps for example. There is a 0.5 mm height difference between the two ends, due to the two-point suspension bosses. The bogies have very thin brake shoes which are not in front of the wheels; the wheels are bright and have the usual diameter of 11 mm whereas it should be 10.6 for Y25 bogies.
Surprising marking. Did tank wagons belong to the Europ pool? I don’t think so, because the Europ Convention did not concern private wagons.
Too recent for me (era IVb-V).
