Adapted by the association on an old Decauville axle dumper chassis number 205 from the Maizy sugar refinery, similar to the L95, the weedkiller group allows, due to its tank, to spread weedkiller on the tracks, or to ensure safety during steam days during drought. In the event of a fire, its tank filled with water can help control it quickly. It is however rarely used.

Built by Henschel und Sohn in Germany, this wagon was used to supply water and coal to Feldbahn locomotives ( more information here ). It could be placed just behind the locomotive or be positioned on the train path to allow the refueling of any machine. The number 313 comes from the sand pits of Nemours, in Seine and Marne. After a great restoration, it took place in the museum for the greatest pleasure of visitors. Its poor rolling does not allow it to be integrated into trains.
