Dark perspectives

This is probably the last photo I made of these magnificent French diesel locomotives in commercial service. As the pack of clouds was getting thcker and thicker, and the sun was starting to set, I kept on going for that one final shot. On the bridge over the railway at Maison-Rouge I enjoyed for the last time the thundering sound at high speed of a CC72000 with an intercity train. At the time of publishing this article, part of the services on ligne 4 have been replaced by Alstom’s new Coradia trainsets.
