Remarks & Notes 
First Anniversary of the World Rail Speed Record: on the exact location where the highest speed was reached and exactly one year after the 574.8 km/h run, two POS TGVs run toward Paris at 320km/h, while the team that made the record celebrates the anniversary, drinking champagne on the bridge near the photographer. Above the end of the first car, a commemorative plaque is affixed to the catenary post (location of the world record highest speed). On the roof of the 6th car lies a big white antenna. It provides passengers with on-board Internet wifi connection.
