The Renault VH was the company's first standard gauge rail car. Built in the factory at l'Île Seguin near Paris, the first was delivered in 1933 and they lasted in service until 1969.  Delivered to all regions of France they were the successful precursor to the famous Renault ABJ family of railcars. They were fitted with a 27 litre Diesel engine developing 250hp Because of the roof mounted radiator and air intakes, they were nicknamed "Iroquois".  115 were made and 2 are preserved.
Under SNCF ownership the couplings and buffers were standardised and they were often seen with a trailer coach or wagon in tow.

Original allocation - under SNCF ownership they seemed to have moved around:
Est                            10 Renault VH; X-2001 to X-2004 and X-2021 to X-2026
Al (Alsace Lorraine)  11 Renault VH; X-2011, X-2031, X-2041 to X-2049
PLM                          15 Renault VH; X-2101, X-2102, X-2111 to X-2123
PO Midi                     19 Ranault VH; X-2201, X-2202, X-2211, X-2212, X-2221 to X-2231, X-2241 to X-2244
ETAT                          36 Renault VH; X-2301 to X-2336

REE Have thoroughly researched the Renault VH family - there appear to have been 9 different body types offered by the Renault company all with different window and door configurations.
