Remarks & Notes 
SNCF's CC 7100 class are part of a series of electric locomotives built by Alsthom. The prototype 'CC 7000' (7001 & 7002) were built in 1949 and the production series locomotives CC 7101-CC 7158 followed during 1952–1955. Two of the class are notable for setting world rail speed records: CC 7121 reaching 243 kilometres per hour (151 mph) on 21 February 1954, and CC 7107 reaching 331 kilometres per hour (206 mph) on 28/29 March 1955 between Bordeaux and Dax. The CC 7107 hauled a three car train with streamlining modifications to reduce aerodynamic drag.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
