Hate the wide open interior design. Looks like a suburban train. What is wrong with an ICE3 or Virgin Pendolino type layout?

The standard platform height in France is 55 cm.

Sorry, I meant the train. On the rendering it looks like a stepless entrance. What's the official English term for that?

So is it a train with 55 cm in large parts? That would be quite revolutionary, wouldn't it?

Not particularly revolutionary. It follows existing blue prints of slower trainsets. That's all. What the picture don't show is the circumstance that the trains will have steps inside. A necessary evil at this entrance level which is far from ideal and which several TOCs like to avoid.

Stadler's IC250 sets have step-less entrance at both 55 and 76 cm, and no steps inside, except for the two end cars. So it seems to be possible, but at the expense of some capacity.
I wonder if a 250 kph version of this train is what Astlom offered SBB For its NEAT trains. It looks conceptually quite similar.

France rail strike halts many trains
13 June 2014

A nationwide strike by train staff in France has halted many rail services and is set to run into the weekend

The strike began on Tuesday and is one of the longest to hit the railways. It has halted about half of inter-city trains and even more local trains.

Trade unions object to a government plan to unite the SNCF train operator with the RFF railway network. Workers fear the reform will mean job losses.

The strike could affect students who will shortly sit school-leaving exams.

The Eurostar service via the Channel Tunnel is unaffected so far.

The French President, Francois Hollande, has urged the unions to go back to work. But the unions say the proposed merger of SNCF and RFF operations does not go far enough, and they want the government to take on the two firms' combined debt of 40bn euros (£32bn; $54bn)

The AVE Barcelona-Toulouse and Barcelona-Lyon have been cancelled because of that.

Honest, when the French go on strike, sometimes it´s really annoying, more than elsewhere.

The French don't like to work. I was left in Barcelona/Zürich/Milan two or three times because of a strike calceling a TrenHotel.

And the record I know of are 46 days of uninterrupted strike of Marseille's public transport workers.

Somehow French public has a very high tolerance of strikes (not just public transport). Otherwise they wouldn't happen so regularly. I'm sure Germans or Spanish could also find something to strike for...

Well, I still remember that sign in Lugano back in 2010 stating (don't remember the exact text, though) something like "Transit company isn`t liable for bad whether conditions or strikes on Italian side of lake"
Totally like the subtle way of implying that strikes don`t happen in Switzerland ;-)

Anything. I´m not objecting against the right the French (or anybody else) have to go on strike.
What I´m questioning is its frequency. I can only speak for Spain, but I find that strikes in France are very frequent.
They go on strike much more often than the Spanish, and for reasons that are sometimes very trivial and over-the-top.

And precisely I had in my mind a trip to Toulouse that I´ve had to postpone for that very reason. Not like it´s the end of the world nor anything, mind you, I´ll just go sometime later, but they´ve just spoiled my holidays a bit.

I´m not sure about the French tolerance to strikes... ...more than tolerance, I´d say holy patience.

Public transport strikes are indeed extremely rare in Switzerland. Last railway strike was in 1918...

I think the problem is that neither the French politicians nor the public have the stomach to push for reforms of the transport unions.

The French generally I think believe the unions are arseholes but I think life in France would have to get really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really (I could go on) bad before any kind of union reform arises.

That's just a dumb stereotype. Read this (written by a British): http://www.theguardian.com/commentis...s-on-treadmill

You may not like social and professional categories having a culture of fighting for rights, but at least don't resort to dumb stereotypes.
