A more well known French Train Manufacturer is JOUEF. years ago I had a small 2-8-0 made by them that gave good service for a long time. After that in a trade, I acquired a Jouf NORD Pacific which I still have and it still runs well. Recently I got an SCNF electric motor. Looking at it in comparison to a steam loco you would say it is a Northern type 4-8-4. With electric types, you refer to non-powered trucks numerically, and powered ones alphabetically. So the 4-8-4 becomes a 2D2. So I have an SNCF 2D2 electric motor. Here is a photo of it.
