Type

B10 DEV AO U58.

UIC number Revision date
51 87 20-80 454-2 5 6.9.72
51 87 20-80 460-9 5 12.1.77

167 g; 121 g after removing the ballast (NEM: 115 to 150 g)

Bogies Y24. The door panes are not flush. Handrails not inserted. The gangways are folding, and the buffers, whose heads are too small, are on spring.

On ref. 4070, a gangway is missing. A step had fallen and is crooked. The gangways are mounted inside out: they show the non-skid surface on the outside.

See gamos81.altervista.org for the reference list of issued DEV AO coach models.

Modifications

  • (Bright) wheels and interior fittings painted; passengers and blinds.
  • Drawbars shortened, Profi couplings.
  • 3-point suspension.
  • Lighting with pickup by wire wrapped on axles, controlled by a latching reed switch.
  • Ballast removed.

There is no “long” DEV AO B10 coach assigned to Region 2 in 1970; there are some to region 1:

Type UIC number
B10 U58 51 87 20-40 401-2 to 419-4
B10 U58 51 87 20-57 888-0 to 957-8

These coach numbers correspond to the renumbering around 1971 of a U59 portion of the Sud-Est 20 40 451 to 496 become 20 80 … This corresponds to an increase in the speed limit, 140 to 150 or 160 km/h, probably by fitting the coaches with high power braking Y24 bogies.
