Comments

ø 11 wheels (should be 11.5).

Ref. 67503: exclusive T2M. Spoke wheels, not very pretty. Seems unpainted. The brown colour is the one before the UIC red, suggesting the very beginning of the renumbering, which confirms the revision date in 1969. This wagon is too light.

Modifications

  • Ref. 46618: ø 11.4 wheels. Start loading (base + rust powder).
  • Ref. 67503: ø 11.4 wheels, brakes, and buffers painted.

History

The UIC standard 2-type open wagon is of German design (two doors) while the standard 1-type with four side doors is of French origin.

Curiously, as the information is almost exhaustive on the type E3 (4 doors), as they are rare on the E4…
