Remarks & Notes 
One year before withdrawn from service, a Midi BB built in 1927 shunts a long passenger train in Toulouse.

The BB 1500 were built in 1926-28 by CEF in Tarbes. They were initially numbered E 4001 - 4040. Together with the BB 1600 (E 4500), they were the first generation 1.5KV DC Midi engines. In the 1950's, they were modernized and downgraded to shunting and yard services. The last BB 1500 was withdrawn in Dec 1979 in Toulouse (BB 1536).
