58 g (NEM: 69 to 90 g).
80 to 83 g after ballasting and loading (86 g for hopper with tail lamps, equipped with an anti-blinking capacitor circuit).

Fine engraving. Spring buffers which tend to fall down.

No. 131 has functional tail lamps, at the cost of the absence of railing and coupling. In addition, these lamps do not conform to the IVa era. The current is collected by strips rubbing inside the rear bogie wheel flanges. The contact is poor: the lamps blink, even when the wagon is ballasted. The problem is therefore at the current pickup strips.

No. 111 is registered Fad instead of Fads, but it still has a load chart "S"?
