The train will start in 2024
The name of this train is TGV M. TGV is a type of high speed train. The company making this train says that it is the train of the future. This brilliantly designed train will be introduced to the Paris rail network in 2024 and across France over the next 10 years. TGV is one of the most famous high speed rail brands in the world. It has been a major part of European rail since the early 1980s.
The order to build the train was given in 2018
In 2018, the French state-run rail company and TGV-controlled SNCF ordered 100 TGV M trains at a cost of $2.7 billion. An additional 15 trains were ordered in August 2022. Alstom says most of the trains will run in France and about 15 trains will run internationally.
The speed is 350 km per hour
There is no difference in the speed of the TGV M train. Even before this, these trains could reach a speed of 350 km per hour. Now the new model train will also run at the same speed. “We don’t want to go too fast in 2022,” Alstom spokesman Philipp Molitor said. Because they take a lot of energy. Our goal is to make high-speed travel accessible to as many people as possible.
The nose is longer than the first trains
The nose of the TGV M will be just 40.5 cm longer than previous TVM trains. They will be bigger not only from the front but from all sides. It will have 740 seats. At the same time, Alstom said that the interior of this train can be easily changed at any time to make the second class equivalent to the first class. Plenty of storage space can also be created. Operating the TGV M will require some infrastructure changes on the French rail network. For example, STOP signs will have to be changed at some stations. So that he does not get in the way of the long nose of the train. Train drivers are also constantly involved in its design.
