Comments

New in 1974. See Loco-Revue No. 356 of December 1974, page 577.

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.

Here is the wagon in its initial state. Whatever can be said, cosmetic surgery works! Iaehss wagon in its initial state

View the topic wagon réfrigérant Laehss (sic) Jouef on the Loco-Revue forum. NB: letter L means special flat wagon with 2 or 3 axles

There is a detailing kit at SMD’s. What annoys me in this kind of kit is the photo-etched handrails, which are consequently flat, while they are in round tubes in reality.

  • Ballast, Makette elongating drawbars and Profi couplings.
  • New ø 5 round head buffers. New brake wheels, origin OsKar.
