Text of a talk given by the Director of the SNCF Rolling Stock Department on 16 May 1974 before the Plenary Assembly of the Association of European Thermic and Electric Locomotive Builders (CELTE) on the policy adopted as regards tractive units. This trend of progress towards a better quality of the service given and greater productivity was illustrated by techniques chosen by the SNCF: gas turbine, thyristor, monomotor bogie.
