Mass

30/34 g with/without spoke wheels (NEM: 37 to 48 g).

Comments

Nice appearance (door locks inserted, body inside engraved), but NEM box big and too visible.

Several wheels are buckled, and the wagons don’t run easily. Wheel flanges of 1 mm, which is a bit too much.

See the Loco-Revue Forum.

Modifications

Buffers, wheels, and brakes (including air tanks and rods) painted.

History

According to REE (the competitor!), the OCEM 29 open wagons, with a wheelbase of 4.5 m, existed in two different heights: type A, h = 1.40 m and type B, h = 1.60 m.
