Hello,

Who remember the french CC40100 and Trans-Europ Express in Continent ? Answer here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC7se0m6FNg&feature=plcp

After introducing with a short old Belgians TV news, we make a special trip in which I participated in June 1996. It was organized by the French association COPEF and the Belgian GTF (Liège). It was the first time and last time, that the four voltages SNCF CC40100 could operate in the Netherlands. At the end, a parallel between Antwerp and Schaerbeek with the CC40100 and its special train, slaloming in between lines 25 and 27.

The Trans-Europe Express services had definitely disappeared from Belgium in May 1995, but this special trip really closing the end of all conventional trains between Brussels and Paris, with the commissioning of the High Speed Trains Thalys from Sunday June 2, 1996. Except TV news, all images from me. Enjoy !
