Comments

It’s exactly the same wagon as the SNCB on the previous page, except the bogies that are moulded Y25, and the price (+ €8). According to Pierre Barbe, there would be an incorrect number of chassis reinforcements. This chassis is metallic, so the wagon is less lightweight than the DB Rs model.

Many pieces are to mount: end walls, marking plates, and of course stakes. A step was hung to the package cardboard and was deformed. The stakes are not pivoting. They have hooks without relief (this avoids risks of snagging). No tow hook.

History

Wagons built in 1972-1973 in 1,500 units, by the Franco-Belge company.

Quotation from Pierre Barbe.

These SNCF wagons were built in 1972-1973 in 1,500 units by the Franco-Belge company. Marked Rs 8.02 at the beginning, they were renumbered after 1980, and marked Rs 80.2. They were part of the EUROP pool (exchange regime 11), and circulated on all networks of this pool in sharing mode. They are used to transport long parts (metal profiles, rails, plates, etc.). They are still running at the moment, some having been transformed for the transport of glass bottles, and some assigned to the SNCF service fleet.
