Railroad scan of the day

A short freight on on the L`ain interurban

An boxcab pulling a freight on one of the Ain Tramway Company’s interurban lines. The scan is either of a postcard or clipped out of a railroad magazine (I can’t verify the backside of it because it’s glued to a piece of cardstock.) Note that the postcard is helpfully pointing out that it’s single-phase; I suspect this means the postcard is from the early 1900s when 3-phase was still a thing, particularly in the mountainous region that France + Switzerland + Italy are all jammed up against.
