Next stop: Rétromobile!
The railway has played a key role in the history of powered transport across the world: a history that has inspired men whose love of trains and
team spirit have become legendary. In France, it all began in 1829, when Engineer Marc Seguin presented the first ever French steam locomotive in
Lyon. Perched atop four large steel-rimmed wheels, the machine had a revolutionary high-performance tubular boiler that would be used on
steam locomotives all over the world until the railways were electrified in the late 1950s. A large-scale educational project. A mechanics teacher and his pupils have recreated Marc Seguin’s locomotive.
Mr Gaston Monnier, a mechanics teacher, founded the  Association pour la  Reconstruction et la Préservation du Patrimoine Industriel (ARPPI).
With high school students and companies, he took seven years to reconstruct Marc Seguin’s locomotive, working from period sketches, texts andengravings.
For Rétromobile, the first ever French locomotive will be presented in working order on the central esplanade of the Parc des Expositions at Porte de Versailles, Paris.
2 centuries after it made its first journey, Marc Seguin can be seen from 6 to 10 February 2013 at the Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles, Paris.
Rétromobile, Eiffage Rail and the Association pour la Reconstruction et la Préservation du Patrimoine Industriel present the first ever French locomotive at the
Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles. Eiffage Rail is a subsidiary of Eiffage Travaux Publics. It was created to foster the nationwide development of the company’s railway business, carried out for many years in northern France. The company, which is eager to play a key role in the French railway market, is already very active in the tram and railway sidings sector. Along with specialized Eiffage Travaux Publics subsidiaries in Germany, it is also taking part in
the large high speed rail project linking Brittany with the Pays de la Loire Association pour la Reconstruction et la Préservation du Patrimoine Industriel.
When we seek to showcase our rich industrial heritage, it is important to select inventions from the 19th century that seem most representative: those that heralded revolutions in mechanical engineering and new ways of life for thepublic at large.
"Civilization means Transport”, said Rudyard Kipling. Nobody would deny the truth of his words today. This is why the ARPPI was founded:  to reconstruct and preserve the ancestors of transport civilization.
