Jouef 865 E
A2Ds TEE PBA “Ile de France” generator car.
New in 1965.
Car recently offered by a friend. Sliding doors. Plastic wheels on one side, metal on the other to power the lighting of the lamps. Y24 bogies made of black plastic (the only ones I knew before, those of UIC, were grey). As was often the case with Jouef, there was a huge difference between the very beautiful drawing of the catalogue and the disappointing, to say the least, reality.
Very good condition, buffers intact, paint a little faded.
The lights work, but flicker because of bad contacts. I had to repair the lamp holder (with Patafix glue).
The original box is complete, but faded.
