Comments

New in 1974. See Loco-Revue No. 353 of September 1974, page 409.

This wagon is practically to the exact scale, except indeed for the buffers.

See photo before modification, except for the wheels already changed. Wagon before modification

In addition to the atrophied buffers, the brake equipment is missing on bogies and the end steps are very coarse. The registration plates are not placed correctly, probably for a question of deflection of the bogies.

The stakes are mostly removed or broken.

Modifications

  • Makette drawbars, ballast added.
  • Home made buffers with rounded-edge rectangular heads.
  • LS Models bogies. Vitrains and Roco stakes. Hauling hooks thinned.
  • Nickel-silver marking plates with decal labels, positioned in accordance with the original diagram (there are, however, many variants). Brake wheels from Roco and Haxo. Haxo brass steps. State of the photo.

History

Series of 2,000 wagons No. 31 87 393 6 000 to 394 7 999 built in the early 1970s. These wagons are equipped with moulded Y25 bogies, at least originally. Main features:

  • Usable length: 18.5 m
  • Usable width: 2.64 m
  • Floor area: 48.8 m2
  • Tare: 23.5 à 24.9 t
  • Max. C load: 55 t
  • Max. C load at 100 km/h (S): 47 t

Documents

  • Photos on Anton Kendall’s tosh-railways website. These photos confirm that there are only two steps, at the same end, on the same side as the brake wheels, unlike the Jouef wagon which has four steps.
