2-part Set, car transport car DD DEV 66 of the SNCF, epoch V, in green paint with white "casquette" logo
Starting in the 1960s, the vehicle transport service by trains started to be used massively throughout Europe.
Car transporters were added to night trains or fast daytime trains for transporting passenger vehicles. In this way, long distances could be faced by train without having to drive on the road.
Double-decker car transporters were built in the early 1980s for various European networks.
These wagons could carry 12 vehicles, six on each deck.
For cars loading, it was necessary to have two-level facilities at the railway terminals.
The bogies and their brake and rolling systems allowed these vehicles to circulate coupled to fast passenger trains, without limiting their maximum speed.
The appearance of high speed and the elimination of night trains throughout Europe meant the decline and end of the services provided with this type of wagons.
Our new model made by ARNOLD gives the possibility to fans to complete a wide variety of scale railway compositions with this must-have wagon.
