Mass

58 g (NEM: 69 to 90 g).
80 to 83 g after ballasting and loading (86 g for hopper with lanterns, equipped with an anti-blinking capacitor circuit).

Comments

Fine engraving. Spring buffers which tend to fall down.

No. 131 has functional lanterns, at the cost of the absence of railing and coupling. In addition, these lanterns do not conform to the IVa era. The current is collected by strips rubbing inside the rear bogie wheel flanges. The contact is poor: the lanterns blink, even when the wagon is ballasted. The problem is therefore at the current pickup strips.

No. 111 is registered Fad instead of Fads, but it still has a load chart "S"?
