Type

Gahss 0.16 “Sernam” 1

UIC number Revision date
31 87 194 3 544-4 26.2.75
  1. Sernam is the acronym of Service National de Messageries — National parcel service. It was at the time a full service of the French National Railways (SNCF).

Mass

70 g. After ballasting: 93 g. (NEM: 77 to 100 g)

Comments

ø 10.6 mm wheels , should be ø 9.65 for real 840 diameter (Y31B bogies). One (metallic) step is missing, promised by the dealer Hobby-trains, never delivered. One wonders why a wagon specialized in vegetables (h) is assigned to Sernam (parcel service).

Modifications

ø 9.6 mm Luck wheels mounted. 0.5 mm thick spacers between bogie and chassis to compensate for the smaller wheel diameter.

History

G0.16 type wagon built in 1969, registered in the series 194 3 000 to 194 4 681, i.e. 1682 wagons. The photo is of a Gass (G9.16 of 1968), having identical dimensions.
