This 1960s archive film shows virtually all the classes of steam locomotives then at work in their respective areas on the SNCF. On-train, line-side, shed and station views encapsulating history in scenes now gone forever - the semaphore signaling, uniforms, smoke and grime of the great French steam age.
This release takes a look at some of the great trains from the country of France, a unique and innovative place during the steam age, with its own twist on mechanics, transport, and even overall style. Some of the examples featured in the program include the 241P's of the Paris-Clermont Expresses the locomotives of Boulogn, the Paris Bastille Suburban service, and more.
