Offered in a set of three coaches with a VSE.

Compared to the former references released in 2009, there are a number of improvements, although the overall aspect is unchanged.

The heating jumper housing is now of correct height. There is no longer a recess of the roof at the ends. The access doors have a slightly lower height. The mounting handrails are mounted.

See a comparative photo with the older model.Comparison with older model

One defect, however, has not been corrected: that of the orange paint that does not rise enough at the level of the roof, as shown in this photo from the Dutch website forum.beneluxspoor.net — photo that concerns the older model.Comparison with the actual coach

All this for almost twice the price…
