Starting off my day in Avignon Centre. Today I will reach Barcelona by the end of the day.
new high speed line to Montpellier will open together with new TGV station - Montpellier Sud-de-France, outside the city centre. It is expected that the time travelling from Paris will be reduced from today's 3h30min to 3h. But due to new station's location, the total travel time will probably be the same.
new service introduced 3rd of July 2016 at the same time as new LGV Est high speed railway (second phase) opened. The train is of type TGV 2N2 3UA (tricurrent Germany), numbered 4722.
TGV 6208 for Paris, operated with TGV 2N2 3UF (number 814).
This BB 7200 (7282) is manufactured in 1980 by Francorail-MTE (in 1987 it became part of Alsthom).
overtaken by Spanish ADIF and Frence SNCF Réseau. TP Ferro became unfortunately bankrupt due to much less railway traffic than originally expected on this route.
Barcelona-Figueres line is 131km long. The line is used both by passenger and freight trains.
