Remarks & Notes 
The April 03, 2007; few seconds after performance at 574,8Km/h, the trainset decelarates without brake use. First step, only the aerodynamic resistance is used to lose speed up to ~250Km/h. Next step, the driver is use classic brakes to stop the trainset at the new Reims station specially created on the high speed line. Many people came to see this incredible speed performance. The dust cloud behind the train is lifted by the high speed and aerodynamic turbulence... See RPN #227277 here www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=227277 to see the trainset in front at the moment of world record. See RPN #475635 here www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=475635 to see the trainset with the actual livery.
