Comments

I assumed that the Roco model was originally Klein Modellbahn, I have the confirmation after buying the latter brand’s model: they are strictly identical, except the bogies, some markings (wheel numbers) and some holes to the roof manoeuvering mechanism that were plugged on the Roco model.

Era IVb. On the Roco, towing hooks and brake wheels are to be mounted, and a brake shoe is missing.

As for its Tms 2-axle colleague, it would be interesting to have a rolled up roof for a loading scene (see in the documents below).

Modifications

Roco: buffers, wheels and brake shoes painted.

Klein: ballast glued.

History

Taes (T9) type wagon, UIC original number 31 87 585 1 000 to 9 999. I don’t know the manufacturer nor the dates of manufacture.
