Les Locomotives Électriques 1500 Volts de Vitesse Part 2


Uniform with Part 1 in this "bookazine" series, this covers the classes of 'total adhesion' electric CO-CO and BO-BO locomotives developed by the SNCF post-war, for use on its rapidly expanding electric routes. In fact this book covers all the classes of 1500 volt locomotives built up to the present.

Also covered are the speed records reached by both BO-BO and CO-COs, the3 major running shed at Chambéry and the major maintenance dpot at Ouillin-Machines, the pushing of trains by the BOBOs, and much more.

157 A4 format pages, full of very largely colour photographs. Beautifully produced and printed paperback.
