Description

One of the famous ‘Chapelon Nord’ Pacifics says a temporary goodbye to the Gare du Nord, departing for Calais in the late 1950′s. These locomotives were originally delivered as Chapelon’s rebuilds of early PO (Paris-Orléans railway) Pacifics, but were so successful that further examples were built new to precisely the same design. The original PO influence is particularly present in the form of the cab, and in many other details. The tender is pure Nord.
