- About BB 16001 SNCF in red
Jouef has sold under reference
;834 EI some scale model locomotives BB 16001 SNCF with a red body in
Capitole livery individual boxes, in addition
to the first batch of
Capitole train sets, according to the Jouef strategy to follow the SNCF main events.
Why ? under pressure of competitors (Gégé, Maerklin,...), put on the market an approximate model with
Capitole livery in order to wait
the manufacturing of the red BB 9288 SNCF locomotives ? Out of stock of BB 9288 SNCF locomotives ? Sale of BB 16001 SNCF which cannot compete
with the Hornby model (BB 16009 SNCF) ? This mystery has never been fathomed.
The locomotive had an old inverted lights system (it looks like a flat capacitor instead of the black Zener diodes).
