Caption Caption: English translation: "Railway The Future Monarchs. While through the bars you look at the fallen prey in your trap Guillaume, tiger thirsting for blood, you do not see that tank launched at full speed and which advances towards the Rhine. That tank is driven by a powerful engine and guided by France, awakened after twenty years of sleep; it bears the tricolor flag, and also carries the Phrygian cap, a symbol of independence of the people. It is under these victorious emblems that you will be stifled; you who thought you were already the absolute master of Europe. You will share the fate of the coward who gave himself up to you. Sedan has seen your crime and shame; Paris will see your loss and the tomb of your every possession."
