You do realize that passenger seating is in the next car back, right? Wild home grown photo, Jean-Marc, very impressive!

Shutter pressed at EXACTLY the right moment - this takes some doing with such a high closing speed.

Fantastique! Seriously, I was just in France last month riding the TGV from Paris to Avignon, and what an amazing accomplishment the French have created, they can really be proud of their railways. I was wondering what a cabride would be like, and this great photo answers the question-Bravo!

From America to France, you never fail to impress. Nice shot.

Couldn't have caught that other TGV at the right time Jean-Marc! Awesome shot and PC!

I wish to express my thanks to all of you for your kind comments. And these thanks are also kind of spectacular. I am writing and sending these words while travelling at 300km/h on the Thalys back from Brussels to Paris. They now have a perfectly operating wifi Internet connection. A 300km/h wifi connection! It works through an elaborate system of antennas and satellite.

The Thalys is my all-time favorite train. It's my dream to one day get to ride on it... This is an excellent photo. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Well Done Jean-Marc, A superb shot and lots of information to help with understanding what is going on. I like the driver just appearing in the edge of the shot to give that all important human interest. Looking at the instrument to the left of the speedometer, I guess the train still accelerating.

Having ridden the Thalys in the summer of 1999 I was amazed as to just how smooth the ride was. In the just under 3 hours it took to ride to Paris from Rotterdam I saw over 2 dozen passages like this.

It is hard to believe that the speed record set up on the LGV Est last year was almost as fast as the combined speed of these two TGVs. A very interesting photo that needed great concentration even with the multiple exposures available on modern digital cameras. A great photo Jean-Marc and you were so lucky to get the opportunity to take it!
