1 réflexion sur « In English : the list of CIWL trains. »

  1. Très itéressant !
    -Je voyais passer la flèche d’or à toute vapeur à Marquise petite ville située entre Calais et Boulogne .- Nous avons encore pris un train de nuit en 2011 : Paris Bercy-Venise . Je crois que ce train était italien ( mais je n’en suis pas certain )
