Hello friends

The CIWL carriage from Acme (90174) is available and with OSE numbering!

Sorry guys if I am spoiling it :(
As we can see at the photos Andy has uploaded, the model has an OSE numbering with no logo.
I asked Jason (who else? :D ) about it and he is sure that the wagon had never received any OSE marking...
I wonder where ACME had that information from!!!

In any case the model looks great and worth having

Well I don't know about the numbering..There are only 3-4 photos of this car in Greek service and the resolution isn't clear enough for someone to make out the lettering..
Other than that the model looks like the photos.It has the same unlettered blue plackards on the sides and the correct rubber Π style corridor connections and correct replicated details...sooo Im fine with it.. :D I have it pre-ordered it from erail also :mrgreen:

Hi boys, I got some good news for you this time :mrgreen:

Jason, looking at some repair and revision records of Thessaloniki Works, was able to confirm that the CIWL coach had indeed received an OSE numbering and ACME has it modeled right!!! :D

Hi there,
maybe someone has a train route sign, ATHEN-SALONIKI for this car or can name a character set with which you can do it yourself.

Thanks from Mainz

This is a good idea Thomas ;)

I had a look at the various destination boards and fonts used, here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=255
I think Arial Black is a good one although spacing between letters varies.
So I have made a small pdf file that you can download and print on decal, photo or plain paper to make your own boards
they are sized to fit Christo's boards viewtopic.php?f=14&t=255&start=10

get the file:
Athina-Thessaloniki.pdf
(1.32 MiB) Downloaded 43 times


there are two types, one with normal and one with wider spacing

here is printed in a normal paper

Car 4569 was on loan to Greece for test purposes and registered with the OSE as number 51 73 75-41 001-9. The use of other P cars did not take place.
Jörg Dell showed a photo several years ago in the DSO's "historical forum":

Photo: Jörg Dell (†), May 1994, probably in Agios-Ioannis.

His page is still online: http://www.joergs-eisenbahnen.de/imp.htm
