This train is used only for testing new lines in Spain, not in commercial service.

Tehre are only two trainsets, each with one engine and three shorts Talgo wagons.

Well within Switzerland there is a standart for platform height, and modern trains have the doors on equal hight to the platforms.

No, it isn't in commercial service. It was a modified TGV-SE rame with tilting systems. Alstom tested tilting technology during the end of 90's. The objectif was to reach 220 kph on conventional lines, in order to hace a cheaper option than building new expensive HSL's.

After those tests, that rame was downgrade and put into service without tilting systems as a normal TGV-SE rame.

What a pity...

Tilting trains are always more comfortable!

Yes, but there are studies currently for a new tilting TGV on lines going through the Alps (Lyon-Annecy for example).

These are pictures of the inside of the new Eastbound TGV (Paris-Strasbourg), designed by Christian Lacroix:


This line will be opened this summer. The commercial speed will be 320 km/h. It will further be connected to the German network, becoming the East European Highspeed Line!! Paris-Frankfurt in 3h45, it will be possible soon!

minatu ku, everything you commented has been negative -- not one positive comment on the new italian train, how predictable from a frenchman.

A slight delayed update from up north.

Quote:
Oy Karelian Trains Ltd

Oy Karelian Trains Ltd is a company which will acquire high speed trains and maintenance services for services between Helsinki and St. Petersburg. VR and RZD each own 50% of the company.

M. P. Akulov, Vice President, OAO RZD was chosen as chairman of the board. The presi-dent of the company is VR Passenger Services project manager, M.Sc. (Eng.) Ilkka Keränen. The registered office of the company is in Helsinki.

An international bidding competition will be organised for the acquisition of rolling stock.

In addition to new rolling stock, achieving faster travel times requires track investments in both countries and conducting all border formalities on the moving train. The aim is to reduce the travel time between Helsinki and St. Petersburg from the current five and a half hours to three hours.

A total of 267 000 journeys were made between Finland and Russia in 2005. The figure indi-cates a growth of 6% when compared with the previous year. Growth for 2006 is expected to be at least 15%.
http://www.vrgroup.fi/vakiolinkit/VR...s/news_99.html

Although, it remains to be seen just how "high speed" this will turn out to be. High-speed up here doesn't mean exactly the same as it does in say France.

What? Critisism is not always sheer bashing. Must I get mad reading MaxxPower's opinion about the TGV's inside design? I love it, he doesn't, that's all.

The French know how to make their trains more colorful lately!

I missed some other European High Speed trains,

DB ICE 1, max speed 280 km/h





DB ICE 2, max speed 280 km/h



DB ICT, max speed 230 km/h





SBB ICN, not really high speed, but it's a tilting train with a nice design. max speed 200 km/h





SBB Rae TEE, max speed 160 km/h



NSB BM73, max speed 210 km/h
