Type

OCEM 29 Us (ex Klmms 2.21)

UIC number Revision date
30 87 959 4 019-3 24.3.70

Mass

34 g empty / 43 g loaded with six wheel sets (NEM: 43 to 56 g).

Comments

Marked “standard weight wagon”. The drawbars are removable (the picture is taken without the drawbars). The spoke wheels are very fine.

Normally, a standard weight wagon is loaded with marked weights to calibrate the wagon weighing scales. It’s not the case here. So, I wonder about this model’s authenticity. See for example this shot of Marcel Le Guay in Loco-Revue No. 480-21974 - 73d40. Wagon poids étalon

See Loco-Revue Forum [REE][Plats Ocem]

Modifications

Floor and brakes painted; load of six Hornby axles with plastic wheels. These wheels were re-profiled (tread width and flange height) and painted (Humbrol Metal Cote for treads).
