Building in progress of the transport of an overhauled SNCF rail coach to a French railway museum (painting of various elements still pending):





- Mercedes-Benz Arocs 4163 SLT 2.3 8x6/4 tractor (Conrad model) fitted with a removable ballast carrier body (modified Siku element) loaded with 2 concrete slabs of 4.37 tonnes each (homemade),
- 2 Nicolas 3-line modular trailers (modified Corgi elements),
- De Dietrich UIC-Y VRU 2+2-axle self-service restaurant coach of 48.5 tonnes (modified Lima(*) model),





Note (*): the Lima model is assumed to be in the Italian 0 gauge (1/45) and measures 49cm in length: the SNCF wagon being 24.5m long, that gives a precise 1/50 scale model instead.

Regards.

The Siku truck was only bought for the Frauscher Mirage 747 speedboat it was carrying. Curtainside bodies were both leftovers of a Mercedes-Benz Joal combination, found unused in a drawer:





MAN TGS 26-440 LL 6x2/2 truck with Deckwerth curtainside body (Siku model and Joal element, to be painted) and Schmitz Z-KO 18 central tandem trailer with Deckwerth curtainside body (modified Joal model, to be painted)

Looking at the picture attached, you have probably noted that the book was much more than 40 years old: that "new edition" was printed in 1882!
Sorry for the mistake.
