The high end models distributor Fulgurex sold many Elettren CIWL cars. Around 1990 Fulgurex and Elettren split for unknown reasons and Elettren cars were sold by Lemaco for a short period. Fulgurex then had a small number of CIWL cars made by FM in Korea. These cars were more detailed than the Elettren cars but were also much more expensive. Here I present the four cars made in this series. The Pullman car is a Fleche d’Or Pullman car with kitchen (WPC) with number 4008; it was made in creme/brown and creme/bleu colors. The model has a length of 55 cm and is to a scale of 1:43,5. The model is all made of brass. All table lamps and the ceiling lamps are lighted and also the lamps above the entrance doors are lighted.
And here you see this Pullman car at the end of a short Fleche d’Or:
And here is the blue/creme version:
Next is the restaurant car of this series, a WR with CIWL number 3342. The model has a length of 55 cm and is to a scale of 1:43,5. The model, with catalogue number 2646, is all made of brass. Some table lamps and the ceiling lamps are lighted; the detailed interior has white walls while the real cars had wooden interior walls. The first pictures show a comparison between some interior details of this restaurant car and another, even much more detailed, CIWL restaurant car which is further presented here: WR2869
And here you see this restaurant car in an Arlberg Orient Express with further Elettren cars (the restaurant is the fourth car):
The fourth car in this series is a sleeping car of the LX type with number 3482 and catalogue number 2627/1. It is to the same scale and with the same lenght as the other cars. It has interior, including the seat for the conductor, and interior lights.
