Remarks & Notes 
Here is the "World-Famous" 2D2 5516, now preserved at the Cite du Train (main French railroad museum) in Mulhouse. It was born in July 1933 and delivered to the "PO" (Paris-Orleans). It became famous as holder of a World Record: maximum mileage ever reached by a locomotive with 7.82 million km when withdrawn in Dec 1979. I don't know if this record was seriously checked against other contenders. In any case the story said so.
