Remarks & Notes 
High speed competition comes to France

In preparation for the opening of competition on high speed lines in France, the Italian "Frecciarossa 1000" #25 high speed trainset is undergoing various tests in France. This is a Bombardier Zefiro train type. It belongs to and is operated by FS Trenitalia who intends to open high speed services in France in 2020 on the international Paris-Milano route and in 2021 on domestic lines.

The train is travelling between 2 test locations, going to Britanny for 2 weeks of tests. It is not yet allowed to run under its own power in France. Interestingly it was a SNCF engine (the last unit of the 26000 series) that was hauling its future competitor.
