Jouef: electric train sets 12 volts with battery box

Jouef ref. 803 electric train set 12 volts - Jouef electric train sets 12 volts with battery box,

Jouef put on market a large range of train sets in order to be the French market leader, by using a low cost policy against others brands, and by train sets changes with new boxes or new contents but remaining the train sets names.
Most of train sets could be easily identified with the help of the Jouef catalogues or Jouef price lists. One difficulty, during many years, the Jouef catalogues did not included the train sets range. An other difficulty, under the same given name (as example Electric-Trafic train set), the train set contents could change from one year to an other year.
The 12 volts DC power supply system has been used by Jouef since 1961 for electric train sets. First battery train sets used two flat 4.5 volts batteries. then with rounded batteries of 1,5 volts.
New Rails tracks are included in train sets, unless description.
Rolling stock are equiped with international couplings since 1963, unless description.

Special issue electric train sets 12 volts (battery box)

Jouef manufactured also some train sets for departments stores or supermarkets. These train sets have different content from the Jouef range in order to not enter in competition with train sets sold by the Jouef retaillers. We can find some specific color rolling stock in those train sets. These train sets have New rails track sections and on ebattery box. All passenger coaches and freight wagons were fitted with full black plastic axles and wheels. This train sets inventory is difficult due to the lack of available documentation.
