Steam locomotive type 232 TC of the French State Railways SNCF. Epoch III.
Metal die-cast chassis. Drive on three axles. 2 traction tyres. Automatic coupling. Dual headlights.
The SNCF purchased 27 locomotives type T18 from the Reichseisenbahnen in Alsace-Lorraine. The locomotives were built between 1915 and 1918 by the Vulcan works. They were stationed in Strasbourg, Haguenau, Sélestat, Colmar and Mulhouse. Due to the incredible top speed of 100 km / h, the large water reservoir and its much appreciated smooth-running characteristics, they were mainly used in fast suburban traffic. The last 232 TC quit regular services at the SNCF and was decommissioned in 1966.
