The SNCF took over 27 exemplars of the series T18 from the Reichs Railway in Elsass-Lothringen which were built between 1915 and 1918 by the Vulcan Works. They were stationed in Straßburg, Haguenau, Sélestat, Colmar and Mulhouse. Due to the respectable top speed of 100 km/h, the large water reservoir and the much praised smooth running features they were mainly used in the fast commuter traffic. The last 232 TC of the SNCF was retired from day to day scheduled service in 1966.
