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.
