Comments

Fine engraving: that of planks is finer than at LS Models. Shutters and operating rods inserted. Spring buffers.

Six of the eight shutter rods are broken, and there is no evidence of their presence in the original box. This may be the cause of the sale price? But this fact was not reported on the site of the (professional) seller.

Width and height are a little too big.

I have a doubt about the “s” marking of this wagon, because I do not think that such cars have been admitted to the accelerated regime (RA). Moreover, the Loco-Review sheet quoted below gives the Gm and not Gms marking.

See the Loco-Revue Forum.

History

These OCEM 19 type wagons were released from 1924 to 1929 to all networks except the Nord. UIC number 21 87 105 1 000-7 to 2 999-9. Manufacturers: Arsenal de Roanne, Sté Lorraine des anciens Éts de Dietrich, Cie Française de matériel de chemin de fer, De Dietrich & Cie Reichshoffen, usines Pétolat, Ateliers de construction du Nord de la France and Cie générale de construction St Denis. Tare: about 10 t; maximum C load: 22 t (source : Loco-Revue sheet).

The UIC marking is far from being applied to the whole series, because many have been withdrawn in the meantime.
