Translation of Oskar’s notice sheet.

The Sgs wagons are flat wagons of special type for the transport of containers and swap bodies, built from the seventies by the French railways.

The Sgs wagons have a frame structure made of steel profiles, without floor, with 20 dowels to block the load. The bogies are welded steel Y25. The colour is wagon red. Some wagons have a parking brake that can be manoeuvred from the ground by a wheel.

Quotation of Pierre Barbe about the corporate names of the containers, in the forum Loco Revue Les wagons porte-containers. Note: the values ​​in meters are from me.

The three containers are 8-foot (2.44 m) high containers (Roco models redecorated by Os.kar, whose front and rear faces are square) while the standard for 20-foot containers since the 1980s is 8 feet 6 inches (2.59 m) high (so they are taller than wide, width always = 8 feet). The companies represented have disappeared a long time ago. Chargeurs was Chargeurs Réunis, a Seydoux group company, sold by Jérôme Seydoux to Delmas in 1988. NCHP (Navale et Commerciale Havraise Péninsulaire) has been part of Delmas since 1986. SCADOA (Service Commun d’Armement Desservant l’Ouest Africain) also disappeared in favor of Delmas.
