Railcar Caravelle X-4590

Caravelle X-4590

The X-4590 arrived at ATTCV in June 2006, only two months after the arrival of the X-4567.

When it arrived at ATTCV it carried the color scheme of the lower Normandie line (Basse Normandie), and had in addition been "decorated" by some "open-air artists".

The exterior was therefore after some cleaning repainted by ATTCV into a completely new color scheme.

The railcar with its trailer had been cut into service by SNCF on 16 October 1967 and had been substantially modernised in 1988, with new driver cabins, new seats, etc. The modernisation implied an increase in weight.

It was in use in the Marseille area when it was taken out of service in 2006, after having been operated by SNCF for some 3,200,000 km.

The interiour is in good shape, both in first and second class compartments.

Compared with X4567, this railcar has a more roomy and modern driver's cabin. Joel really enjoys being at the helm.
