- Jouef train sets 6 volts (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 (for example "Paris-Rome" train set), the train set contents could change from one year to an other year.

- others electric model train sets no brand 6 volts with battery box

Jouef has manufactured also a large number of electric model train sets for French chain stores as Monoprix or Prisunic for the Chritsmas period. Those electric model train sets in order to prevent from competing with model train shops or toys retaillers, had specific contents. So we (as collectors) can find some variant of rolling stock that are not included in the different yearly Jouef catalogues. Those electric model train sets were sold without brand name, then under the "Punch" name and under the "Jouef Diffusion". The inventory of those electric model train sets is very difficult because of few of documentation available.
