Jouef HDI

Electric locomotives

All the locomotives used the same basic frame as used for the electric locomotives BB 17029/25531 SNCF. Unlike Jouef models, there is only one driving axle insted of two, and the 5 poles Jouef electric motor is replaced by a Mabuchi electric motor. The frame had embossed characters Jouef HDI and Made in Ireland markings. The locomotives bodies are used only for the Jouef HDI range and they are more or less a representation of the real locomotives prototypes.

Diesel locomotives

All the diesel locomotives used the same basic frame and same body. Bogies are the same bogies as used for the German electric locomotives BB DB class 110/139/182. Like the Jouef HDI electric locomotives models, there is only one driving axle, and a Mabuchi electric motor. The frame had Jouef HDI and Made in Ireland markings. The same body is used for all liveries and it seems to be inspired from the German diesel locomotive DB class V200. For the Belgium locomotive (SNCB/NMBS), Norwegian locomotive (NSB) and Danish locomotive (DSB) liveries, it supposed to be a NOHAB Diesel locomotives.

An Irish Diesel locomotive is also included in the Jouef HDI range, but it used the German electric locomotive body BB class 139 DB, with the CIE livery (orange and black). The pantographs were removed.
