Dampflokomotive Serie 241-A

Die goldene Zeit des Reisens
Mit Beginn der 1930er Jahre erschienen die mächtigen Dampfloks der Reihe 241 A auf Frankreichs Schienen. In den „goldenen“ Zeiten des Reisens vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg beförderten sie schwere Schnellzüge zwischen Paris und den Atlantikhäfen Cherbourg und Le Havre sowie zwischen Paris und Basel. Dort gehörte auch der berühmte Arlberg-Orient-Express zu ihren Aufgaben. Nach Kriegsende fuhren sie bis 1965 hauptsächlich zwischen Paris und Straßburg sowie Paris und Basel. Erhalten blieben die 241 A 1 im Eisenbahnmuseum Mulhouse sowie die 241 A 65 als größte betriebsfähige Dampflok Europas in der Schweiz.

Class 241-A Steam Locomotive

The Golden Period of Travel
The mighty class 241 A steam locomotive appeared on France's rails at the start of the Thirties. In the "golden" period of travel before World War II, it pulled heavy express trains between Paris and the Atlantic harbors of Cherbourg and Le Havre as well as between Paris and Basle. The latter assignment also included the famous Arlberg Orient Express. After the end of the war, it ran until 1965 mainly between Paris and Strasbourg as well as Paris and Basle. The class 241 A 1 remains preserved at the Mulhouse Railroad Museum as well as in Switzerland as road number 241 A 65, the largest operational steam locomotive in Europe.

Locomotive à vapeur série 241-A

L'âge d'or du voyage
Au début des années 1930 apparurent les puissantes locomotives à vapeur de la série 241 A sur les rails français. A l'âge d’or du voyage, avant la seconde guerre mondiale, elles remorquaient de lourds trains rapides entre Paris et les ports de Cherbourg et du Havre, ainsi qu’entre Paris et Bâle. Le célèbre Orient-Express Arlberg comptait alors parmi les trains remorqués. Après la fin de la guerre, elles circulèrent jusqu’en 1965 essentiellement entre Paris et Strasbourg ainsi qu’entre Paris et Bâle. Les 241 A 1 furent conservées au Musée du chemin de fer de Mulhouse, tout comme la 241 A 65 en Suisse en tant que plus grosse locomotive à vapeur d'Europe.
