I think that it is supposed to be a French built locomotive that has been recquisitioned by the German occupation forces.
Ah - there was me thinking it was a real loco - I didn't realise that it was a bodged up British loco (a bit like the LBSCR Terrier they used in Anna Karenina) although the tender was giving me worries as being extremely British.No excuse for the spockling mistale, then.
I s'pose if it's meant to have been built in France under German occupation, you can suggest the spelling mistake along the lines of factory sabotage / go slow tactics
On the other hand, film makers rarely worry about reality or accuracy - so how many filmgoers will pick up the typo ?
