OK for starters my book confirms the original allocation of TEE RGPs a nine to Noisy and two to Lyon Vaise.

Interestingly 2773 was reallocated to Vaise on 17/4/60 but then back to Noisy very quickly on 29/5/60. Could this be the 'swaps' we were talking about.

Noisy sets' early work was on Edelweiss, Arbalete, Parsifal, Ile de France and Mont Cenis. On the Arbalete the TEE unit was paired with an ordinary RGP1

Over-user of brackets and quotation marks.

Wondering how many pedants can dance of the head of a pin.

A short book review appears in the latest edition of Swiss Express, the quarterly magazine of the Swiss Railways Society, that may be of interest to TEE fans.

The book dates from May 2017 and is in large format 32cmm x 23cm and has 200 pages, and goes by the self-explanatory title of:

Trans Europ Express - Poster Art 1957-1990

I have found a webpage with good details - in German - and an excellent preview of some of the pages (remember to use the full screen view available ) here:

http://www.1815.ch/rottenverlag/shop/trans-europ-express-plakatkunst/

Warning: like all art books, it comes at a price - €79.00

The magazine review is limited to describing the contents, but does say that the text is in English, German and French and comprises three introductory essays and a foreword by four authors. The essays cover themes of "modernist poster design, marketing, national differences, and how railways respond to the threat from travel by road and air across national boundaries as Europe integrated after WW2...........  By far the most dominant essay theme however is the withering of the European ideal." The review points out that the majority of the book, some 140 pages of the 200, is dedicated to reproductions of the colour posters.
