Remarks & Notes 
50 Years ago to-day - SNCF 4-cylinder compound 4-6-2 No 231K22 climbs Caffiers incline with train 84, the 14.24 Calais-Maritime to Paris Nord rapide. This engine, preserved in Germany after some years in England, was originally built for the Paris à Lyon et à la Méditerranée by the Chantiers de la Loire in 1916 and rebuilt by the SNCF in 1948. It was withdrawn from service in November 1969 after 53 years service.

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