OUIGO TGV passing Avignon station and accelerating to 300km/h



Excellent and impressive!
Viaduc des Angles. Le double Viaduc des Angles situé près d'Avignon, est un ouvrage d'art de 1 500 mètres de long composé de deux viaducs. Il assure le franchissement du Rhône, par la LGV Méditerranée. Au fond la gare Avignon-TGV.
@Maersk.146 Thank you very much! 🙂

High-speed rail network in France is very impressive.
TGVs operate with headway as short as 5min. Most of the trains are double-consist TGV Duplex with over 1000 seats, almost all seats sold out. Capacity is on the limit on many lines and the network is being constantly developed.
Maximum speed up to 320km/h with average speed above 250km/h.
Amazing!
Congrats, Kees, on your Picture of the Week!
Thank you guys! 😃
