UIC Number Revision date

Home base: Paris-Bercy

76 g (NEM: 64 to 84 g).

Nice wagons. Multiple metal inserts: handles, photo-etched steps, transmission rods, or plastic: door locks for example. The plastic access ladders to the ice boxes are quite thin. The grid of the refrigeration unit is photo-etched. But the group’s support, which should be openwork, is not.

Due to the presence of the refrigeration unit, the length over buffers is slightly increased: this was respected by LS Models.

The roofs are too dark, almost black; compare with the real model photo.

The axles, fitted with brass bearings, are swivelling. But, as with other wagons, the pivoting is illusory: some axles are tight, and the small moulded return springs do not even bear on their support!

Fairly thin wheel flanges (0.8 mm). The back-to-back wheel distance is still a bit small (14.3) compared to the last NEM standard (14.5 ± 0.1). Distance between tips 24.8.

There is undoubtedly a mistake on the revision dates — difficult to read: 1966, for wagons delivered in 1969!Revision dates
