The term “Micheline” refers to a railcar running on rubber-tyred wheels, although in France conventional railcars are also often referred to using the same name. There were many varieties of Micheline, and a few were even exported to Britain. In the picture, one of the first types is on the right, and a later variant (now in the museum at Mulhouse) stands on the left. The original painting is now in the collection of the Michelin museum at Clermont Ferrand.
