One more fantastic heist story

I saw this typically french episode in 1977, when I was on vacation in my grand parents house, near Amiens. At this time, I was 14 years old and already was a heist movie - and novels - lover. This little episode electrified me. Literally. The hero - Désiré Lafarge - a sort of old timer, not an action man, has to fight against a bunch of professional robbers who plan to pull a seventy millions of Francs heist. The take a small railway station, in the country side, and wait for a bullion train that contains bank notes. Used bank notes to be destroyed in the Bank of France. If my memory is good, the gangsters plan to rob the wagon train with a huge helicopter!!

Only for that, I would give anything to see this episode again.

But, I repeat, that's not an action episode. Not Die Hard. But it would have been a great film.
