Remarks & Notes 
Paris-Lyon rebirth! First encounter of a brand new train with its own brand new line. Early in the morning, a series of 4 "TGV Sud-Est" gets ready for the very first tests of TGV trainsets on their newly built, dedicated line. This is one year before inauguration. Paris-Lyon was the first high speed line in France. It has been open to passenger-only service in 2 phases in 1981 and 1983. Speed was initialy 260kmh 161.5mph
