Comments

Inserted parts: handrails, door handles (all metal parts), shutters and manoeuvring rods, label holders. The air vents are thin, but not perforated as on the last Hornby Jouef G4. High price — more than €50 — not justified in my opinion.

History

Type G0.16 wagon for transport of vegetables, built in 1974, registered in the series 193 0 000 to 193 2 849, i.e. 2850 wagons. It differs from previous series by its Y27 bogies with diam. 920 wheels instead of Y31 with diam. 840 wheels, and a roof a little less rounded.
