These wagons were used till recently as escort to the freight consists.
The second of two series, the first has been introduced in 1974, both built by UZINA DE VAGOANE ARAD, Romania
Let's wait for Jason to give us the rest of the data ;)

* the initial post has been slightly modified after Christo opened a new post for the 1974 series, better this way


I have shot only one, 940 0 180-1, at Agios Ioannis.

Here's another at Aghois Ioannis in late 2005 - thanks to the graffiti 'artist' :x who didn't quite manage to paint over the number - it's 178-2.
