We got announcement from AlbertModell for a H0 model of tank car of Yugoslavian type. These tank cars were built in a company Goša from Smederevska Palanka in nowadays Serbia. The basis was polish tank car type 29R which is somewhat shorter (12,80 m instead of 13,24 m) and with lower capacity (48 m3 instead of 60 m3). Goša tank cars’ came at the Yugoslavian railways in the 1960’s as type Uahrrs-z which were later recoded as types Zas and Zaes. Many of these cars are still in use in all republics of former Yugoslavia. A lot of these cars were exported to Czechoslovakia so You can see them in nowadays Czech and Slovak republic.
