The few hoppers mentioned above were the only one used by our railways ever as Greece was never an exporter of grains.
We had instead an extended fleet of Interfrigos to export fresh fruits and vegetables.

OK, BarbaPanagos, I understand !

I beleived that Greek railways used grain hopper wagons built in France !

And I didn't notice that the CFMCF wagons were ex-SNCF !

So, I have a question : do you know the French owner of these wagons ? For example, I give you some picture of a flour mill (which is no more in used today) and not far from my home. This mill used two 94 m3 Fauvet-Girel of 1981 and four CFMCF-Balbigny of 1974.

Sorry Christophe, I have no idea who was the previous owner of these wagons.
Let's wait and see if anybody else knows something more.
