FYI, I recall having seen in the '80s also a couchette version of these carriages(ΚΟΛΑ CO ΛΕΓΛΑ), registered in the Skopje district zone (ŽTO Skopje). They were sometimes part of the international trains to Athens, but usually they were replaced in Skopje by a Belgrade-based GOŠA Couchette carriage (KOLA SA LEŽAJIMA), the unfortunate uninformed passengers having to transfer all their luggage to the newer carriage during the stop at Skopje...

The numbers of JZ carriages depended on directorate (ŽTP/ŽTO) to which they belonged (if we consider 12 digit UIC numbering). As it was written, the Yugoslav carriages were 26,4m long and built by PAFAWAG (A and AB version) and later by GOŠA (A, AB, AR, B and Bc versions). For example, Skopje had owned 8 couchette carriages of this 26,4m type and their numbering were Bcm 51 72 59-40 800-807.

Thanks, Sky, for your contribution and the valuable information. This clarifies the issue for me!

Btw, I’d be very interested in creating a thread in this forum specifically on the JZ! If anybody else is interested, pls let me know!

Cheers,

Hi All,

I’d probably define it at a higher level, in order to allow a consistent sub topic structure for different subjects (sorry, it’s the professional deformation of a data scientist speaking... :D :D
Cheers,
