Comments

Lateral stakes, provided assembled, can pivot to horizontal position. The sides are separated from each other (but not foldable…). Holes are made in the floor to receive standardized containers. This floor, in metal, removable by four screws, serves as ballast.

Discovered on ref. 6094: the bogie springs are really cylindrical, as on REE tanks or Fad hoppers. It is therefore a precedence of Hornby-Jouef!

Ref. HJ6094 : two realistic coupling hooks are supplied as accessories.

Ref. HJ6057 : Era V !

See the Loco-Revue Forum.
