- Container transport wagen for two 20' containers
- Hobby version
- model weights 36 gram
- lenght over bumper: 114mm
- maximum radius: 287mm
- close coupling mechanism
- coupler connection after NEM 358
- comes with BTTB style couplers

Overall a nice model for 17 Euros with detailed prints and a good weight to it with very low rolling resistance. The containers have pins and a weight in them as well to make them stay put, doenst look like they are magnetic. I think PIKO did well and hope to see more rolling stock and give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Question (s) to the experts: Is PIKO releasing these articles as a one time only, limited editions? What's the story? I found a lot of shops in Germany that can not procure (get) some of the previously released models (e.g. 47700-47710 same are not available anymore, not even at the factory). Basically it's the same frame (different colours for respective eras or railways) and the containers are the same design (coloured and painted with a diversity of logos), kind of same thing ROCO & TILLIG do, that's the way I see it. It does not look that bad!
