The French coal beds in Lorraine ensured the supply of energy for Paris for many years and particularly in the immediate postwar period. Very heavy coal trains went daily from the mines to the capital city. A second locomotive crew rode in a crew car specially set up for the purpose so that the relatively long route could be traversed as quickly as possible without long intermediate stops. The crew car for the second crew was a so-called camping car and the second crew could spell the first crew during the run. At the end of the Forties, the coal cars consisted of all kinds of different designs of two-axle gondolas.
