Life (and loves) on the French Railways. Seriously, aside from the stunning treasure trove of steam train images, a love triangle story in the style francais where the handsome engine driver becomes the latest lover of the tragic wife of the station master. Men are beasts and so are women. Love is a force that masters reason. Fire and water power the world. The fireman dreamed and the engine just gleamed.
