Remarks & Notes 
Rest area

Due to the economic downturn and the bad fortunes - or poor management? - of the SNCF freight Department, these electrics are experiencing a forced rest. Fortunately most of them should see service again but the fate of the diesels is more uncertain.

In France, freight on the road fares much better than on rails. As compared with Germany, it can indeed be said that the French SNCF poorly managed its freight business in the past decade. As a result, this sad view has appeared in Sotteville near Rouen. So as to make at least some petty money out of the new competition from emerging "private" competitors, SNCF Freight goes as far as leasing its own brand new and useless engines to its competitors.
