Did a Faller designer move to Peugeot?


My new car has a glass roof. I don't know why, it just came with one.

Anyway, while trying to puzzle the need for this new development in automotive design, and why it's so important that we lose 3cm of headroom to accommodate the curtain that can be pulled across it, I find another model of the transport with a clear roof.

 The Faller e-Train railbus. I appreciate that roof is removable to facilitate putting plastic passengers inside, but why is is transparent?

And more to the point, since the railbus pre-dates my car, is the roof the result of a designer moving from Faller to Peugeot?

Like Per, we like ours. In Winter it makes it less gloomy. In Summer you get the light but without diminishing the power of the A/C.

Talking of A/C, our seats now have it. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
