SNCF coaches in N gauge
« on: June 02, 2017, 12:47:02 am »
I've started a new thread as we were straying off topic in 'European N Gauge Goofs' because the conversation had turned to what is good not what is bad!


So back to Lima DEVs

Are the Lima UIC coaches flush glazed?


Absolutely yes. The rendition of the windows was superb for a model tooled in the 1980s

Here is the B9c9 Couchettes version

Was that the only 9 compartment DEV release?

I found a couple of Artrain UIC green 2nds on Ebay, but at a quoted price of Euro 175.00 each I'll give them a miss for a while. I thought at first the quoted price was for a twin-pack or even a triple-pack but no, that was a single coach.
A pair would be nice for my early 1970s DB Moselbahn layout, but not at that price!


I have now got my first Artrain coaches (a 4-car Le Capitole set) and they are really not that good quality. On the German forum, SNCF Ep. IV coaches also became a subject recently. I have read there that Artrain/Transmondia are planning a re-release (still without coupler kinematic) this year.
http://www.transmondia-trains.com/FR~Nos_Fabrications (pages 3-5) - price: €42 which seems more appropriate.

Also, REE/Mikadotrain are (re-?)releasing the DEV AO soon, although only in Ep. IIIa first. Sample photos here:

This has been promised for approaching 3 years and Transmondia have a history of being very slow at producing promised items.

Absolutely not a 're'-release.

These are all new, and there are loads more than just the Epoch III on the way .

See: https://www.ree-modeles.com/catalogue/catalogue-n
(scroll down to 'Voitures Voyageurs DEV AO N')

The Postal coaches they have just produced are superb. I got mine at the Lille Trainsmania show.

The randomly posed window blinds are a nice touch. :thumbsup: Think I'll have to borrow that. :beers:
