PIKO published a first picture of their new ‘cradle cars’ (DE: ‘drehschemelwagen’). This kind of freight car runs in pairs to transport logs, timber, steel beams etc.
The PIKO set comes in a DR era III livery, and will be available at the end of this month. MSRP € 125,00.
I’m not sure what the correct name for these freight cars is. PIKO lists them as ‘disconnects’, while other sources say they’re ‘cradle cars’. Let me know which of the two describes these cars best!
