Product Features and Details
With the beginning of the 1930s, the mighty steam locomotives of the 241 A series appeared on the rails of France. In the "golden" periods of travel before the Second World War, they carried heavy express trains between Paris and the Atlantic ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre as well as between Paris and Basel. There, too, the famous Arlberg-Orient-Express was one of their tasks. After the end of the war they traveled mainly between Paris and Strasbourg as well as Paris and Basel until 1965. The 241 A 1 remained in the Mulhouse railway museum and the 241 A 65 was the largest operable steam locomotive in Europe in Switzerland.
