Remarks & Notes 
ALCo went on to build 50 Pacifics for the Paris-Orleans Railway Nos 3591 to 3640 in 1921. They became SNCF Nos 231B601 to 650 and No 616 is seen leaving Brodeaux-St.Jean with a train for Lyon-Perrache. These ALCo two-cylinder Pacifics and the 2-8-2s were somewhat different from the traditional French four-cylinder compounds. Photo by the late John P. Wilson. (see also photo id 255109) taken the same evening)

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
