Tbis 871 (Maerklin 47300)

I picked up a set of the sliding roof / sliding wall cars Tbis 871, formerly Klmmgks 68 (Maerklin 47300) at a price that makes me overlook that the car is from more than a decade after the year my layout is set in.
The doors or roof sections don't actually open on the model. The detailing is reasonably fine and accurate, except for the grab irons, which are just as thick as on the version from the early 1980's. I do like the nice job they did with the various patches and changed lettering. With some light additional weathering these cars will look great on the layout.

47300 comes with four individually numbered cars.
