SNCF Photos, I'm Afraid: part 1.

Zero time for railway matters today - and the next few days will not be much better.

So, images time.

The two pictures below are of the interior of the French  presidential carriage, PR2, made in 1954 after a 3rd class carriage was transformed. The interior, basic but very practical, is in keeping with the aesthetics of the 1950s. Furnished with a study, a bedroom and a bathroom with a shower, this carriage transported Presidents Coty, Pompidou and Khrushchev, as well as General De Gaulle many times.
