Les Locomotives Electriques 1500 Volts de Vitesse Part 1


A 'bookazine' from the French magazine 'Ferrovissime', the 156 large format pages here are dedicated to the 1500 volt electric passenger locomotives which appeared on French railways from 1900 onwards, and especially between the two World Wars.

All were heavily built following steam technology, and whilst some were unsuccessful many had very long lives. Over 100 mainly colour photographs, interesting text and paperback.

If you visted France and travelled by train to the south of France from the 1950s to the 1990s, this will have the memories coming back!
