Prototype Information

The T type passenger cars are the latest in the series of 25 series of passenger cars, utilizing more modern materials in their construction and rated for higher speeds that their T and K predecessors. They are deisgned to run continuously for up to 20 hours at 160kph. There are a number of variants, however Bachmann's model is based on the Plateau type - a domestically built version designed to work high altitudes for the Qinghai - Tibet Line. The Tibet cars are exclusively in green and yellow.

Model Review

General

Bachmann's YW25T is based on the Tibet version. I do not have any in my collection at present, however I suspect they are of the same quality as the Tibet version RW25T Soft sleeper cars, which you can find here.
