Remarks & Notes 
The TEE Cisalpin Paris-Lausanne-Milano has reached the Swiss border station of Vallorbe. During the stop, customs and police are controlling the passengers and a locomotive change takes place. The French BB 22200 was withdrawn, hauled by a Swiss engine under the 15KV catenary. Now a Re 4/4 II in TEE livery is coming, to get coupled to the train which is made of stainless steel "Mistral 69" passenger cars. The first car on the right is a combined generator (for air conditionning) and first class car.

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.
