I wonder if the two french ladies (last photo in post 205) could be taken in the Ardeche. On the line which is nowadays called "Le Mastrou".
I made a trip there last year. I checked my photo's but the loco numbers do not match (403 and 414).
But in the past they had about 6 locomotives so it is still possible.
I have no idea, Alwin.
I did notice they look pretty similar to the restored ones still running, but that's all.
I suggest you contact our fellow Tom Bell (Tebee) who lives in France and knows more.
Perhaps he can bring you in contact with Sixtifs, Ives, Jacky Molinaro or other French modelers who must know more.
