Remarks & Notes 
Farewell to Patrick

After lots of pictures from South America, back in France for some TGV nostalgia: TGV #01, the first unit of the first generation TGV was celebrated today on the first day of a farewell tour to visit several TGV maintenance shops. The last first generation "Sud-Est" TGVs were withdrawn from service in December after more than 40 years. Built in 1978, the #01 TGV set was extensively tested together with the other pilot series unit #02. They were nicknamed "Patrick" (#01) and Sophie (#02). For this celebration and farewell tour, Patrick had its power cars painted in the orange livery of the first high speed years. The other cars display the 2 other liveries (Atlantic blue & grey, Carmillon red and dark grey). More to come on this event and farewell tour.
