(Scroll down for French Text)

Eric Favre has just written, and self published, a new book about the Bugatti “railcars/automotrices”.
It is a luxury book in Italian format (24 x 30 cm), delivered in a box which allows it to be stored in your bookshelves in Italian or traditional format.
This book has 336 pages and weighs 2,590 kg (with the box), it is bilingual (French and English), and includes more than 400 illustrations (photos, drawings, etc.). There is a historical part (4 chapters) and a technical part (3 chapters). Many errors circulating for many years about these railcars have been corrected because Eric was able to consult the archives of the SNCF and those of the Cité de l'Automobile in Mulhouse.


I have the book a few days ago, and it is in fact very good! There are loads of photographs, technical drawings and a lot of new information. Also the comparison with the other period "Automotrices" like the Renaults and Michelines is interesting, and puts it all into a bigger perspective. For example the fuel consumption, which was always said to be high for the Bugattis, but compared with the other period marques it is not that bad at all!
A book very well worth reading and good value for money!.
