In its distinctive chocolate livery, Chapelon Pacific number 3.1197 forges its way along the Nord main line from Paris towards Belgium. This locomotive was one of the series built new in 1936 for the Chemin de Fer du Nord, after the first series of locomotives of 1934, which were rebuilds of former PO (Paris-Orléans) Pacifics. The class totalled 48 machines and they were extremely successful in service. Locomotive number 3.1192 is preserved at the Cité du Train at Mulhouse.
