History of the machines
Animated machines, do you have a soul?
They were born from our imagination or that of our clients, they were the fruit of our work, they generated a lot of stress and many satisfactions, they have not all become myths like Belphégor but have sometimes been forgotten. Whether we built them or operated them, these machines mark the memories and the great moments of our history.
Single-engine locomotive equipped with a torque converter and an Asynchro gearbox that drives the reversing axles mounted on one of the axles via cardan shafts.
Locomotive BB 432 was the first CFD locomotive with an asynchronous gearbox to adopt trucks without connecting rods.
With 489 units, the Y 7400 is the largest series of locotractors ever made in France.
These locomotives were designed by CFD but manufactured by Fives-Lille. The transmission consists of a Ferodo coupler, a CFD Asynchro gearbox connected to the two reverser axles.
The CC 80001 locomotive is equipped with two 1550 horsepower diesel engines and two Asyncho gearboxes had extraordinary performance at the time of its release.
The B 350H locotractors were designed by CFD in 1974 for the industrial branch line market which had been dominated by the Moyse company until then.
The BB 600 locomotives are twin-engine machines with 2 Asynchro gearboxes that drive a reversing bridge located on each bogie.
The first railcar manufactured by CFD at the Montmirail workshops for the Corsican network succeeds in meeting the challenge of being both inexpensive and economical to operate with high performance.
The first 3-axle locotractors with powershift gearboxes were manufactured for the Cimenterie de l'Orientale (CIOR) in Morocco.
Twin-engine normal track rail car equipped with two CFD Asynchro boxes and used to monitor the condition of the rails.
