Comments

Although this wagon is marked .Elo, it’s not a true one, but probably a redecoration of a German wagon. The Elo had no brake. In addition, the Roco model has opening ends whereas an Elo type doesn’t have any, by definition (letter ‘o’).

Modifications

  • Piko ø 11,4 wheels on Roco axles.
  • Brake shoes removed.
