[FR] ‘Le Cévenol’ in modern times: The Alstom Régiolis in LiO livery for Occitannie

Last summer, we showed you the TER Regio 2N in the new colors of the French region of Occitannie. Now, the Coradia Polyvalent debuts with the red-silver LiO livery.

We thank Christophe Masse for sharing his nice picture of ‘Le Cévenol’, seen in Boucoiran, while on its way to Nimes. The bi-mode unit he caught is numbered ‘84695 M’ and the contrast between it and the architecture at the station is really striking; a truly remarkable sight mixing future and past:

About ‘Le Cévenol’

‘Le Cévenol’ is the name of an SNCF passenger train which was launched back in 1955. Originally, it was linking Paris to Marsellie via Clermont-Ferrand on a daily basis. As the years passed its route got shortened and, eventually, in 2018 it became a TER operated-service between Clermont-Ferrand and Nimes.
