Remarks & Notes 
The TEE 17 "Le Rhodanien" leaves Paris Gare de Lyon for Marseille. This was one of the last days for this train, as it was discontinued on Sept 28 1978. The luxurious stainless steel cars belong to the "Mistral 69" type.

TEE means Trans Europ Express, a network of European crack trains between 1957 and 1991. They were the fastest available rail passenger services, and were 1st class only.

The crack passenger trains in Europe before the high speed era (1956-1980's). They were day 1st class only trains, and seat reservation was compulsory, quite a distinctive feature at a time when one could board most trains without a reserved seat or bed.
