Comments

One of the wagons has spoke wheels and plain bearing boxes; the other has plain wheels and roller bearing boxes. The drawbridges and guide rails are movable. Road trailers have an articulated drawbar.

Beware of the risk of losing the label holder grilles.

See the Loco-Revue Forum. REE wagons only really arrive on page 38.

REE offers UFR trailers in “parking” position, i.e. with the small wheels in low position.

Modifications

Wheels, linkage and brake shoes, buffers, and steps. Floor painted and weathered. See the photo. Wagons UFR patinés

History

The company Union des Transports Ferroviaires et Routiers (UFR) — Union of Railway and Road Transport — was created in 1934 to do combined transport. The single-carrier wagons are from OCEM 1929 flat wagons. They were built from 1946 to 1958, and withdrawn in 1974.

The photo taken from the REE website, and arranged by me to bring out the wagon from the background, is that of the wagon reproduced (No. 042 0 015).
