These included the greater part of the Paris and Rouen Railway; the whole of the Rouen and Havre Railway, including the stations and the maintenance of way of both lines; the line from Rouen to Dieppe, all under Joseph Locke, and George Neumann. Also part of the Amiens and Boulogne line and the canal works at Bar le Duc; and the Orleans, Tours, and Bordeaux contract.
