Love the propaganda piece.
I rode Le Mistral during 1971 Paris/Nord-Nice. The Budd licensed equipment shown was assigned.
"And that's the way it was" back then (including the dress code); the veal dish they served for Lunch was magnificent.
Now "fast forward" to 1996 for the railfan trip piece, and it certainly looked as if the equipment had seen better days; so for that matter had the "cuisine" noting such was served in Styrofoam containers. Now what astounded was that a light engine was pacing the fan train.
Of course, fast forward to 2017, and that equipment had been sold to Cuba. Somehow, I doubt if the electric blinds work today.
