Remarks & Notes 
13 cm higher

In January 1981 in the Villeneuve Saint Georges AMPSE shops, the TGV SE #16 had bigger wheels than sister trainset #04 because it was modified for the "TGV100" high speed tests. 100 means 100 meters per second, means 360 km/h. This was the preset target for the World Speed Record (actual speed achieved 380 km/h). The 13 cm diameter difference clearly shows on this picture.
