French Railways – The Glorious 241.A.65

The SCNF beautiful and elegant 241.A.65 is one of my all-time favorites, along with Germany’s 010 series locomotives, the USA’s NYC Niagaras and Hudsons, the C&O614, and UP844, Japan’s C62,  Spain’s 4-8-4s, the UK’s ‘The Duke,’ Russia’s Pm36 and the Czech Republic’s ‘Albatross.’

The 241 and 242 series locomotives were among the later steam engines to be built for France’s Railways and were among the largest in Europe.

In the videos below, we can capture some recent glimpses of the magnificent artistry and power of this locomotive.

Coupled with the beautiful and famous 241.P.17 on May 2009 in Koblenz.
