Title:  this Diagram relates to the French SNCF (Societe Nationale des Chemins de Fer Francias) T1000/T1500 ETG ("Element a Turbine a Gaz") trainsets from which Amtrak's Turbo sets were developed
Description:  The Amtrak Turbo sets were developed from the French SNCF (Societe Nationale des Chemins de Fer Francias) T2000 RTG ("Rame a Turbine A Gaz") trainsets. Like the Amtrak versions they had 5 cars with a gas turbine power car at each end.They were built by ANF for SNCF from 1972 to 1976 and many have seen 30+ years of service on SNCF with the last set being withdrawn in April 2005. Some are preserved and some are now thought to be in iran and possibly North Africa. The SNCF T2000 RTG sets were themself developed from the SNCF T1000/T1500 ETG ("Element a Turbine a Gaz") trainsets first converted from an SNCF X4300 class DMU in 1967. The 1968-1973 production sets had 4 cars with the T1000 car containing the gas turbine and the T1500 car containing the diesel engine. The last SNCF T1000/T1500 ETG sets were retired in January 2001. Both types ran all over France.
