Type

OCEM type PEz mail transport van

UIC number Revision date
50 87 00-87 579-4 1 15.10.74

113 g (NEM: 99 to 129 g)

Very fine (roof handrails, buffers, etc.). Brass bearings, and even if the bogie inner side beams “rebel” a little, the wheels turn without rubbing. No difficulty to replace deployed bellows with folded ones, the first being not glued.

Delivered with a small trolley with mailbags, which could be rather yellow than burgundy (the PTT having adopted the yellow for their road vehicles far before doing it for the wagons).

Still the same problem of NEM box too narrow. In fact, the thickness of the tail of provided standard couplings is 1.4 mm, while the Fleischmann Profi are 1.65, and the NEM 362 imposes 1.75−0.05 for the inside height of the box!

See:

Modifications

  • Drawbar boxes mangled to accept a coupling.
  • Steps, buffers, infrastructure, brake blocks painted.

The 157 PEz (PE = Poste Entrepôt — Mail Warehouse) mail transport vans result from the transformation of OCEM 26/29 travelling post office in the 1970s by the Cannes La Bocca workshops. They were equipped with Y24Jz bogies.

UIC numbers (for the 35 first units):

50 87 00-47 501-7 to 508-2
50 87 00-87 509-1 to 512-5
50 87 00-47 513-2 to 535-5
Management: Sud-Est

Unlike travelling post office (Paz), the mail transport vans are not equipped for mail sorting, but only for the transport of mail bags.
