Comments

New in 1959.

Two copies. I replaced the bogies with axles (suspensions got from old Jouef clockwork train wagons), and I also painted the cars’ wheels that were originally red!

Very rough model. But it looks pretty much like the model photographed in the SNCF 1956 booklet (plain chassis, no diagonal reinforcements). The 4CVs transported have a six-bar grille, which presupposes a picture before 1954.
