Eaos 81.2 transport of sand
|UIC number||Revision date|
|31 87 534 x 802-0||20.9.85|
52/93 g without/with load (NEM: 64 to 83 g). 72 g with new sand load.
Incomplete registration, identical wheel numbers on each side! Underframe marking: Liliput by Bachman.
The car is rather treated to 1:85 scale (dimensions in red).
Opening doors, spring buffers, but buffer heads are skew. Load of real sand, so not to scale. It would require much more finely sieved sand or other product in fine powder.
Moulded Y25 bogies Y25; misplaced brake shoes.
The elongation return system seems unreliable (plastic spring, return by bogie).
This wagon could be returned to the normal type, and registered in sub-series 2 850 to 5 343: 31 87 534 3 802-3 E8.02 (in red, the figures to be changed).
See the Loco-Revue Forum à propos des Eaos
SNCF. Quotation from Pierre B., page 2 of this thread: “
of the Liliput model is of a CFF wagon”.
It is presumably a 72 m3 type built in 1972/74. The transformation into a “sand” type seems to have begun only after 1980.
