SNCF 141 TD 740 at Gare Parsac-Gouzon, 23230 Fr.
Following on from the last photo, this is how I travelled up to Montluçon! Of course, this is not the usual motive power used on this line, (!) but a special train going from Limoges, to the annual Festirail meeting in Montlucon.

This locomotive was built by SFCM de Denain in 1932, for the Compagnie des Chemins de Fer de l'Est, it was one of 42 locomotives built for hauling heavy suburban trains in the Greater Paris area, which it did until it was finally taken out of revenue service in 1967.

Steam trains cannot go very far before they need to have their water supply refreshed, and here we have stopped at the little station of Parsac-Gouzon to re-fill the tanks, which also gives people a chance to walk about, - and take photos of the locomotive!

Martin, many thanks for your kind thoughts!

Not surprisingly, I thought exactly the same thing! Rob was just as fanatical about old cars and trains as I am!!

It looks like there is some backup power there, just in case :)

Ben, yes it's a diesel freight loco, owned by the restoration group. Until about five years ago it wasn't considered necessary to deploy this, but I think now SNCF insist that there is a backup.

These trains run on ordinary service lines, mostly single track, and a stranded train would cause huge operational problems, so it's quite understandable, but I always feel slightly cheated by the presence of the diesel!
