In December 1930 the workshops started the construction of four cars, which were the bogie version of the Fumistas. The very deep windows however could be removed during the summer period. When open it was allowed to smoke in the cars, which gave them their nickname. Converting the cars twice a year was abandoned in later years and the windows were replaced by a type that could be opened by the passengers.

When introduced they were divided over the lines 1, 5 and 9 with some services on line 7. In the 2nd half of the 1930‘s they normally worked on line 9 with some services on line 1. The STCP used them mainly on the lines 1 and 9.

With the CCFP these cars had the numbers 312-315. The STCP renumbered them 266-269.

The 266 was in service until December 1979. No.268 was withdrawn in 1980. Both others were withdrawn at the end of 1980 and are now part of the STCP museum collection.
