It's a train.


Specifically a SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français), TER
model.


The next photo is likely an interior shot of the same vehicle.

Boy are you right. I didn't think anyone would recognize the type of train.

Photo taken in Perigueux, France 2004 at the SNCF open house. They overhaul
the train cars there to a like new condition every 20 years and repair all
the damaged cars. I went with a friend that had worked all his life there
from 1944 on. The Germans had control of it for about a year.

You can see a small slide show of the operation he

Very cool!

In '67-'68, I think I rode most every train in Europe, and especially
French ones. It's a whole different train-world over there (and other
parts of the world) compared to North America!

And you as well, sir!

I haven't been on an American train since 1955 and that was when I was
inducted into the Army. I also rode in an army C-47 (DC3) in 1955 to
another base.
I have been on a lot of French trains though. I just bought tickets for
next April from Paris to Perigueux on the TGV.

Have a great day.
