A Chapelon 4-8-0 of the PO series passes over the Viaduc de Rocherolles in the late 1930’s, with a train of mostly OCEM stock. These locomotives were the predecessors of the SNCF 240P’s, and are considered, along with those machines, to be Chapelon’s masterpieces. None survived into preservation. In the picture, I have cheated slightly by leaving out the catenary on the viaduct.
