Specific Item Information: road number not readable

Model Information: Model introduced in 2017. Wine tank wagon with brakeman‘s cab.
A total of 553 tank wagons - 180 of which were closed vehicles - were delivered by MAN to the German Winery Association (Deutschen Weinkesselwagen-Gesellschaft m.b.H.), Kitzingen, and to other European countries from 1919 onwards.

Like the H0 model, the new design in N Gauge features a close coupler with guide mechanism (NEM 355) and movable sliding doors that let you look inside the wagon at its two wine barrels.

Highlights: Two movable sliding doors; Replica of the wine tank; Finely detailed; With close coupling mechanism.

Prototype History:
Wine barrel cars are freight cars with wooden wine barrels installed on them. They can be referred to as foudre, from the French term for these large wine barrels. A two-barrel car was designated as bi-foudre.

This special type of tank wagon was set up by private wine merchants from several continental European countries. Most of these cars were built in the first quarter of the 20th century. Due to regular thefts and high repair costs, they were later manufactured in a closed construction, partly with roof domes. From the 1960s, they were replaced by tank cars.

Road Name History:
Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane S.p.A. (reporting marks: FS), previously Ferrovie dello Stato, is a state-owned holding company that manages infrastructure and services on the Italian rail network (English: Italian State Railways).
Ferrovie dello Stato was founded in 1905, and marked an important milestone in the process of the unification of Italy.
In 2000, to comply with European regulations, the company's two main divisions, service and infrastructure, were separated and two different independent companies were created: Trenitalia, responsible for transport service, and Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), responsible for the management of the rail infrastructure. Both companies were still subsidiaries of Ferrovie dello Stato Holding SpA.
In 2017, Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane acquired 100% of TrainOSE, the Greek national railways.
