Remarks & Notes 
On the morning of February 26 1981, an ageing diesel built in Feb 1956 of the CC 65500 series nicknamed "Dakota" hauls the World Record TGV Sud-Est #16 toward the test track on the high speed line south of Saint FLorentin. On that day, some hours later, the TGV #16 will officially break the World Speed Record at 380 km/h.
