greetings French O gage toy train afficinados.
i am investigating the BLZ passenger cars. 4 wheel trucks with more elaborate trucks.
i have some questions.
to my eye the wheels are smaller flanged than JEP wheels, is that true?
are these passenger cars considered toy three rail tubular compatible?
Can someone share with me what years they were produced? Are they made of tin?
are they considered common or upscale in France?
might they run on 031 curves? Possibly run through Lionel 022 switches?
there appears to be three colors, green, yellow, blue, is that correct?
are they well built or fragile?
are the couplers unique universal to the manufacturer? How might one adapt to other makes?
Has anyone here motorized a car to be self propelled without a lead engine?
Do the come apart easily for repair or possible alteration?
I have seen them in an elevated price range, mostly in excellent condition.
What is a good recommended price range for played with runner condition?
does anyone have some that fit this description for possible sale or trade?
Thanking you in advance for possible enlightenment on my inquiries.
