General characteristics of the switcher:
This switcher is a kind of Kö but in a french version. Power was also very reduced.
The diesel engine is a in-line 4 cylinder 4 cycle Renault, type 505 with water cooling.
chains are used to transfer power to the axles.
Life at CFTR:
Despite a considerable restauration work (for example an intense welding of the coupler), an engine change, a complete repainting or the recovery of the builder plate, it has been decided to scrap it because there was not enough place in the depot.
