Two French Pacifics, former competitors, stand in a northern French depot. The one to the left is one of the famous ‘Chapelons Nord’, based on a Paris-Orleans Railway (PO) locomotive. The engine to the right is a rebuilt Paris Lyons Mediterranee Railway (PLM) design. Both worked together on the ‘Region Nord’ almost to the end of steam.
