De Dion Bouton
Eenrichting De Dion Bouton-railbus van het type JM4 afkomstig van de Chemin de fer des Côtes du Nord. Deze leuke motorwagen uit 1932 is rijvaardig en wordt regelmatig ingezet op de museumlijn van de MTVS ten noorden van Parijs.

This fascinating single direction railbus is now a museum piece from the MTVS society near Paris in France. Once a lot of these cars ran on narrow gauge railways all over France. This example was in operation on the metre gauge lines of the "Chemin de fer des Côtes du Nord" in the north-western department "Bretagne". It is a type JM4 from 1932 manufactured by the firm "De Dion Bouton". It could be a good actor in a comic strip but we have to realize; "Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction".
