Remarks & Notes 
The CC 40101 from the SNCF has been built in 1964 by Alsthom. This class of locomotive was hauling the TEE trains running between Paris Nord and Brussels. The CC 40100 locomotives were able to operate under four different power supplies. The CC 40101 has been withdrawn from active service in 1996. The 1500 Volt CC 6572 has been built in 1975 by Alsthom MTE. This class of locomotive was hauling the Aquitaine TEE trains #1 and 2 running between Paris and Bordeaux. These were at that time, the fastest passenger trains running in Europe. The CC 6572 has been withdrawn from active service in 2006.
