World Railways Photograph Catalogue - Restoration & Archiving Trust

Most of the scenes below were taken on the three metre gauge systems that still had steam locomotives available for traffic in the late 1960s. The shots on the PO Correze & Reseau du Vivarais lines cover special trains run for the benefit of enthusiast groups while the ones taken on the Reseau Breton cover normal operations some of which were taken only a few weeks before the lines closed to traffic. Although some pictures taken on earlier visits do include tour party special trains hauled by 4-6-0Ts. Following suspension of service in 2009 some scenes have now been added covering operations on the Tournon to Lamastre section of the Reseau du Vivarais. The section finishes with a couple of scenes on the CF de Pithiviers a Toury and a shot on the short lived CF Touristique du Meyzieu.
