These X 4790 and X 4795 railcars are part of the last examples of the long series of EAD (Element Self-propelled Double), nicknamed “Caravelle”, built between 1963 and 1981 by the Ateliers du Nord de la France ANF: X 4300, X 4500, X4630, X4750 and X4790.
The X 4790 to X 4796 were built in 1981, and modernized in 1987-1988 (reinforced cabins) then in 2005 (exterior “TER” livery, renovation of interior fittings).
An article in the Ferrovissime magazine details the history of this series of EADs built for the Basse-Normandie region, with a very specific original livery: [Ferrovissime](https://blog.ferrovissime.com/2014/07 /when-the-ead-lower-normandy-did.html).
