Comments

As for the Gbs of the same brand, the finish leaves something to be desired: burrs on buffers, a skewed buffer body and with moulding defects, markings not very clear.

The packaging doesn’t allow storage once the stakes are mounted! I changed it, but I spent half an hour for that…

See Loco-Revue forum (without much interest).

Modifications

  • ø 10.4 wheels (Train Magique) to replace the ø 11. Brake wheels painted yellow.
  • Floor, buffers, and steps painted.

History

As stated in a discussion on the Loco-Revue forum about an equivalent product Brawa, this wagon probably doesn’t exist at SNCF (nor SNCB).

The wagon reproduced is supposed to belong to the company Novatrans specialized in the transport of containers.

The photo above is that of a Remms 10.2 which has been removed the sides and stakes, but which kept its type (it should have lost the “e”).
