Comments

New in 1974. See Loco-Revue No 53 of September 1974, page 408.

Except for its buffers stunted as always at Jouef and its rather coarse bogies, this wagon was successful in its overall proportions.

Little used and kept in its original box, it is in a very good condition.

See the wagon in its initial state, with only new reduced diameter wheels. Wagon Habiss dans son état initial

Modifications

  • Ballast, Makette elongating drawbars and Profi couplings.
  • New 5.2 × 4 rectangular head buffers.
  • LS Models Bogies.
  • Broken roof clips restored with ø 0.75 mm round Evergreen turned into half round. The snap is thus much softer and however sufficient.
  • Bogie pivots restored, three-point suspension. Installation of SMD hauling hooks and piano string handrails.
  • New licence plates in decals, with new number 21 87 027 9 395-9 (this is the one of the Loco-Revue sheet photo) (state of the photo).
