A Nord ‘Outrance’ 4-4-0, with typically-British outside frames and inside cylinders, passes the outer suburban station of Montsoult-Maffliers with a northbound train from Paris around 1900. These engines were direct descendents of Archibald Sturrock’s 2-4-0′s of the English Great Northern Railway, and performed express, and later secondary, duties with great success.
