RENFE_WL-UH_4607.jpg (41560 bytes)

UH Sleeping-car (WLUH-4607) of RENFE, seen idle at Madrid-Fuencarral.

Unlike UH cars of other operators, those of RENFE had always retained their original CIWL livery and original slam-doors.

These ran on the "Puerta del Sol" (Paris-Madrid) from 1969 to 1981, and then on Iberic services, until their withdrawal in the late-80s.

Madrid-Fuencarral. 1991.
