Blue and White

Renault VH 2211 diesel railcar. 1933
The Renault factories tested large numbers of ADC's between 1922 and 1934 which were to shape the standards applied to their future models. The 15 fist VH-type ADC's, single-bodied and reversible, were fitted with a four-strocke, V12-cylinder diesel engine and a 4-speed gearbox and were rated at 162 kW at 1500rpm. They were used on the Est, P.O., PLM and AL networks, followed by around a hundred other models, including the VH 2211, at 195kW a more powerful machine.
