Flamboin-Gouaix Ile-de-France France 5th June 1988

Flamboin-Gouaix Ile-de-France France 5th June 1988
140C231, a former Chemin de fer de l'État, and subsequently Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français (SNCF) engine, was built by North British of Glasgow in 1916. The engine is preserved by AJECTA who organised a steam special to Troyes from Gare de l'Est in Paris running via Melun, Montereau and Flamboin. The engine came off the train at Flamboin for water.

It seems odd that such a French-looking loco was built by North British. It just shows their versatility. A great portrait of an impressive engine.

Thanks Phil. It was a French design and the first 70 were built in France before the War but the rest (270) in the UK.
