 Bogie coach, green, chassis of the 514, all tin - my estimate is a "assemblers mistake" or self-made   some models show grey foam material underneath the roof over the veranda - this was most probably installed to prevent injuries from the sharp roof corners.

1520 Battery passenger coach

available from 1957 until 1960 /62. Until which year the battery coaches were available is not to my knowledge - at least 1960 - most probably 1962 when the first "modern" battery locos 1013 / 1550 were issued.


 Battery boogie coach, 3 AAA-sized batteries to serve the battery operated tender locos. Battery box fixed by 2 rivets.

 Another method of fixing the battery box was achieved by 2 fishplates each side of the coach. 




 and the 3rd version has fishplates and rivets

 from below. The batteries were kept in place by means of a small tin - rivet fixed between chassis and boogie 

"rivetted and fishplated"
